Chicago Catastrophic Injury Attorney

When physical injuries result in extensive medical procedures, long-term care, and / or life-altering conditions, the results can be immensely difficult for victims and their families to bear. With the potential to result in extreme repercussions to a victim’s physical, emotional, and financial well-being, catastrophic injuries require full and fair compensation.

From medical bills to lost wages and future earnings, injured victims often depend on damage recoveries to help them recuperate from their injuries and support themselves and their families during difficult times.

I have handled a number of catastrophic injury claims and I am prepared to fight tirelessly on behalf of local victims and families who are in need of fair compensation and proven legal representatives.



Catastrophic injuries can occur in any type of accident. Whether you or your loved one has been seriously injured in a car accident, motorcycle accident, or any other situation, our firm is capable of holding the responsible party liable for your damages.

Chicago Catastrophic Injury LawyerDamages and Compensation

Catastrophic injuries, as with other personal injury claims, are awarded compensation based on three separate categories: monetary damages, non-monetary damages, and punitive damages.

Monetary damages are awarded to victims to help alleviate the financial burdens that their injuries caused. For cases involving catastrophic injuries, this can include medical expenses, the cost of long-term medical treatment and therapy, and the lost wages or future earnings resulting from a victim’s inability to work.

Non-monetary damages are more difficult to equate in dollar amounts because they largely concern the emotional and psychological impact that injuries have on victims and their families. Compensation is typically awarded based on the victim’s pain and suffering and the marked impact on their quality or enjoyment of life. In catastrophic injuries and wrongful death cases, the loss of companionship or emotional elements of family relationships are also taken into consideration when determining compensation.

Depending on the circumstances involved, punitive damages may also be awarded as a way to punish defendants for extreme negligence and irresponsible actions. Punitive damages are common in drunk driving accidents and distracted driving cases.

"There are all kinds of reasons why you might need a lawyer at some point(s) in your life. Whatever the reason, what you want is someone that understands you, advises you properly (hey, our emotions can override our intellect), works hard on your behalf and is willing to go the distance. Phil Berenz is just this kind of lawyer. I had a situation where I needed the assistance of a lawyer and fortunately he was recommended to me. Phil can walk that delicate line of completely understanding --feeling your pain--to giving you the best advice based on his experience. Some lawyers may tell you what you want to hear to run up your fees. Not Phil.
He's a top-notch negotiator and has the patience to build relationships with the opposing side to gain the best benefit for the client. He is very skillful at understanding the psyche of the other parties.
I could go on and on, but basically what I want to say -- if you need a lawyer, call Phil. If he doesn't have the expertise that you require, he'll recommend you to someone that does and you can be sure they will be of a high calibre too."
