"For anyone who is really looking for a team of Attorneys that will fight for you every second of the way, this here is the team you want and need in your corner. Attorney Ryan Kelley and his team helped me through such a difficult time after my accident. The stress of thinking what happens next was lifted off my shoulders.

Communication is key for me, and my M&N team was on point with the level of communication they provided. The get-well cards and flowers after surgery were just a special touch that brightened my day. I wasn't treated like another number or another case, they really made me feel like family. They really care for you and your wellbeing. Words will never express but I will forever be grateful for all they have done for me. Thank you !!!!!"

Types of catastrophic injuries

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain Injury
  • Burn injuries
  • Amputation
  • Disfigurement
Spinal cord injuries, caused by direct damage to the spinal cord itself or indirectly from trauma affecting adjacent bones, tissues or blood vessels. A spinal cord injury can result in loss of mobility or use of limbs because of chronic pain or paralysis. Victims of paralysis – paraplegia or quadriplegia (tetraplegia) – may also lose function of bodily organs or systems, such as respiratory or circulatory functions. 

Spinal cord injuries are frequently caused by car accidents, falls, industrial accidents and other incidents.

Brain injuries, caused when the head violently strikes or is struck or penetrated by an object, or when a sudden jolt violently shakes the head. Whether people with head injuries have suffered minor concussions or severe brain trauma (traumatic brain injury or TBI), they may experience various functional short-term and long-term changes that adversely affect thinking, sensation, memory, language and emotion. Traumatic brain injuries can lead to a lifetime of costly medical care and therapy.

TBI most often results from falls, car accidents, and construction or industrial accidents.

Burn injuries, caused by fire or explosions, or by exposure to hot surfaces, hazardous chemicals or toxic gases. Burn injuries are extremely painful and can affect the skin, lungs, eyes and other organs. Fire, extreme heat and explosive or corrosive materials can cause severe scarring and disfigurement. Someone who has been badly burned may lose the ability to move or use affected limbs. The risk of infection after a severe or widespread burn is significant. 

Burn injuries occur in structure fires, car accidents and workplaces, such as industrial, manufacturing and construction sites, and food service or kitchen operations.

Amputation or loss of limb, or “traumatic amputation,” is the loss of a body part – usually a finger, toe, arm or leg – as the result of an accident or injury. In many cases, a limb is amputated surgically after an accident because it has been damaged too badly to be saved. Many amputation patients do well with prosthetic limbs, but the loss of a limb or other body part will cause significant physical as well as mental pain and suffering regardless of the long-term outcome. 

Traumatic amputations often occur in car accidents, and construction and industrial accidents, and may result from medical or surgical errors, as well as other types of accidents.

< More items >

Permanent disfigurement includes significant scarring or loss of the use of a limb or other body part, such as through paralysis or amputation. In addition to the physical pain associated with an injury causing permanent disfigurement, victims often suffer significant psychological damage, such as loss of self-esteem and depression. Family members can also be psychologically scarred by a loved one’s disfigurement. 

Injuries leading to permanent disfigurement often occur in car accidents, industrial and construction site accidents, fires, animal attacks and because of surgical or other medical mistakes.
