Catastrophic Injury Lawyers

Rebuilding Your Life After Serious Injury

Catastrophic injuries aren't defined by pain or where the injury took place. They're defined by how much they change our lives. From specialized equipment to changing our relationship with our bodies, catastrophic injuries are life-altering to the core. The companies that are responsible for inflicting catastrophic injuries must be held accountable. Arnold & Itkin is the foremost advocate for people whose lives are destroyed by negligence.

Our firm has secured $10 billion for clients suffering injuries such as:

  • Loss of limb
  • Paralysis and spinal cord damage
  • Burns, scarring, and disfigurement
  • Brain damage
  • Blunt force trauma
  • Vision loss and eye injuries
  • Acoustic trauma

People who suffer from catastrophic injuries or have a family member with catastrophic injuries are going through the worst struggle of their life. Figuring out what to do next is stressful, with a lot of uncertainty and unanswered questions. The stakes couldn’t be higher, which is why we take our responsibility to these clients seriously. That’s why we do everything within our power to get our clients the best medical care and the largest recoveries possible. That’s our duty: providing security, guidance, and a light in a dark time. No matter what.

No Matter How Tough
the Fight.

When people suffer life-altering injuries, they need every resource to provide for themselves. Other law firms sometimes turn away tough cases: cases that require months of preparation, elbow grease, and serious resources. Not us. In fact, the tougher the fight, the better. Our refusal to be intimidated has helped us win more than $10 billion for our clients, including record-breaking verdicts in catastrophic injury cases. If we take your case, you can bet we’ll fight for you with everything we’ve got. No matter what.

  • Kurt Arnold
    "Always bet on justice. It takes a lot of time and resources to win a case against big defendants, and some cases are easier to win than others. But this doesn’t matter at Arnold & Itkin. We take the cases that we must win because it’s the right thing, the ones we have to win—even if it’s hard. Especially if it’s hard."
    Kurt Arnold Founding Partner
