A Civil Trial Law Firm Focusing On Your Future

At Trauma Lawyers, we understand how difficult it can be when you are suffering injuries due to someone else’s negligence.

Your healing process is an uncertain journey involving countless medical appointments, rehabilitation measures and time off of work. Depending on the nature of your injuries, you could be facing a completely different way of life due to someone else’s negligent actions or inaction.

The stressful path to your recuperation could be compounded by fear of how you will pay your medical bills and provide for your family when you cannot return to work right away.

That is why the legal team at Trauma Lawyers focuses on you and your future.

Recent Verdicts And Settlements

Compassion And Courtroom Experience When You Need It Most

Your injuries may seem obvious to you and your physicians, but the court of law requires a multitude of steps and elements before rendering justice in your personal injury or medical malpractice claim.

Attorney Katherine A. Cárdenas knows what it takes to prove negligence and she knows how daunting it can be for you or your family members to do this on your own. She investigates the circumstances surrounding your injuries, speaks to witnesses, compiles your health treatment records and gathers medical and financial expert testimony so the court can hear your complete story.

Many cases settle outside the courtroom, but that does not stop attorney Cárdenas from building a complete chronicle of your claim in preparation for going before a judge and jury to seek the justice you deserve.
