Philadelphia Catastrophic Injury Lawyers
2016 Best Law Firms in America in Personal Injury Litigation
The definition of the word catastrophic is, "The end result of a tragic event or dramatic action that causes extreme misfortune or total ruins." 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 cause mental and financial strain on everyone involved in caring for a seriously injured person.

Our Case Experience with Catastrophic Injuries
The Beasley 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. In this case, a world-famous heart surgeon performed an unauthorized procedure on a baby that led to lifelong blindness and severe brain damage.
We also achieved a $20.5 million verdict for the family of a young woman who was killed by her plastic surgeon's negligence-including $15 million in punitive damages, the highest award of its kind in Pennsylvania. In addition to these recent results, our firm has more than 300 verdicts and settlements of $1 million or higher-more than any other Philadelphia personal injury law firm.
Our results include record-breaking, law-changing, and successful verdicts and settlements. We stand proud for being a legendary Philadelphia catastrophic injury law firm.
