There are many law firms that can handle routine personal injury cases but when the legal issues are complex or when the injuries are serious or permanent, you need a personal injury attorney who thoroughly researches and investigates the accident and the resulting injuries. Santa Cruz attorney Christopher A. Landis has many years of experience getting compensation for his clients in the following types of injury claims:
- Spinal Cord Injuries
Damage to the spinal cord can happen in an instant in a highway accident, but the results – such as paraplegia and quadriplegia – can stay with the victim for a lifetime. Attorney Landis has a comprehensive knowledge of spinal cord injuries and adds to that knowledge with each case he handles. He leaves no detail to chance as he thoroughly investigates both the accident and the injury.
- Brain Injuries
A slip and fall accident with a bump on the head can result in a brain injury that can mean a lifetime of confusion and frustration for the victim. More serious brain injuries from head traumas in vehicular crashes can mean devastation to a victim’s life and to family members. Brain injury lawyer Christopher A. Landis has extensive expertise in the handling of brain injury claims.
- Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy/ Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
RSD (also known as CRPS) is potentially one of the most devastating of diseases that can result from trauma sustained in an accident. Surprisingly, the disease is often triggered by relatively minor trauma to the hands, arms, feet or legs and injury to a nerve may or may not be implicated. The condition is characterized by a burning pain and hypersensitivity to light touch. Usually, there are additional objective symptoms such as joint swelling and stiffness, temperature alterations and skin discoloration. Without treatment the disease normally progresses until the victim’s quality of life has been severely and permanently impaired. It is well established in the medical literature that the prognosis for full recovery is much less favorable for victims who do not receive prompt treatment for the disease from a qualified medical doctor. Ideally. the treatment should begin within weeks or at most within a few months from the onset of the first RSD symptoms. The Landis Law Firm has successfully handled a number of RSD cases in the last ten years.
- Wrongful Death
When a surgical error or a car accident or a truck accident results in the wrongful death of a family member, the long-term effects on the entire family are terrible. The death of a loved one is always difficult, but when that happens because of negligence, the grief is particularly hard to deal with. Attorney Landis has helped families recover compensation for their physical, emotional and financial losses following the death of their loved one.
