This will involve the hiring of investigators, health care experts, life-care planning consultants and sometimes vocational rehabilitation specialists and economists.

At Leesfield Scolaro we have the commitment and financial resources that are crucial to the success of catastrophic injury cases.
Catastrophic injury cases are the most difficult cases to take on in many aspects. In cases with unlimited coverage where the negligence is attributed to a deep-pocket defendant, the challenge is simply to educate the defendant on the life-long care that will be required to treat our client. In some instances, a trial on damages alone will be necessary, and a jury will have to decide how much money the injured person deserves.
However, in most cases, catastrophically injured individuals will find out the at-fault person has no or very limited insurance coverage to compensate for their injuries. That is when the need for life- long care requires the right mix of aggressive and creative lawyering in order to uncover a source of coverage that will guarantee the independence and financial safety of injured individuals. That is how Leesfield Scolaro often times is able to secure settlements multiple times above the policy limits of the available insurance coverage.
