The definition of the word catastrophic is, “The end result of a tragic event or dramatic action that causes extreme misfortune or total ruins.” Other words that are synonymous with the term catastrophic are: tragic, disastrous, devastating, debilitating, horrific, life-altering, deadly and fatal. Catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injuries, internal organ damage, amputations, spinal cord injuries, hemorrhage, blindness, deafness, burns, paraplegia and quadriplegia, are just that – devastating, debilitating and life-altering.
Not only do catastrophic injuries significantly impact the life of the person that was injured, they also forever change the lives of family and loved ones. Many catastrophically injured patients and their families are faced with life-long medical treatments and therapies, medical expenses, life alterations, and pain and suffering that can not only cause mental strain, but financial strain on everyone involved in caring for a seriously injured person. Here at the Beasley personal injury law firm, our teams of lawyers, doctors and nurses really do understand what you and your loved one are going through right now and what you are faced with in the future.

The Beasley Law Firm has secured the largest medical malpractice verdict in Pennsylvania history against a prominent heart surgeon who caused serious harm to a newborn baby who required minor heart surgery after birth. The adult heart surgeon was unfamiliar with the anatomy of the baby, causing infant brain damage and amputation of the arm. Just a few weeks after receiving this verdict, the Beasley Firm won a $55 million dollar verdict, the second largest compensatory damage award in Pennsylvania history and we did not stop there.
