Injuries Requiring Surgery
Our Harrisburg Catastrophic Injury Lawyers Serve All of Pennsylvania

We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to offer you the help you need to get past this difficult time.
Understand Your Legal Rights
A surgical procedure might be technically "successful," but patients may not recover fully. The victim may have permanent changes to their mobility and ability to care for themselves. He or she may not be able to return to work in the same capacity (or at all) and may have to rely on others for care. Disfiguring injuries can change a person’s appearance and harm their self-esteem and emotional health. There are many, many consequences of serious injuries that a person may have to deal with for the rest of his or her life, and even with surgery, their lives may never be the same as they were prior to the accident.
