St. Paul Attorneys Helping Victims of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic Injury Lawyer St. Paul, MN
If you have suffered a catastrophic injury due to someone else’s negligence, contact Krug & Zupke as soon as possible. The catastrophic injury lawyers at our firm have more than 30 years of experience handling cases just like yours throughout St. Paul, MN. Most catastrophic injuries require on-going care, which can be expensive and difficult.
Insurance companies want to settle as quickly as possible. They will present an amount that may not take into account the loss of wages due to your injury or the ongoing care you may require. Some injuries even mean you cannot return to your previous job and will need to find a new one. All of this costs you and your family money. The Minnesota personal injury lawyers at our firm understand how difficult and expensive this time may be.
Our firm has a team of medical experts that we rely upon to thoroughly investigate and calculate an estimate of how much your care will cost to ensure you receive the proper medical care and rehabilitation necessary. Let us help you and your family during this difficult time. Having the proper legal team on your side can be the difference between surviving and struggling while you recover from your injuries.

Injuries to the Brain, Head, Neck & Spine
How will my injury affect my life?
When you have experienced a life-changing injury, like a traumatic brain injury, a spinal cord injury, or an internal organ injury, it can seem like life will never be as it was before the accident. Many injured people struggle with emotional, as well as physical, pain. They wonder how their relationships with family members will be affected. They worry about the impact on their careers and their ability to work. At Krug & Zupke, P.C., located in Saint Paul, Minnesota, we help people who have sustained severe and catastrophic injuries take legal action to help mitigate the effects of the injury.
How will I care for my injured loved one?
When a family member has experienced a severe or traumatic brain injury, their loved ones often are unsure of what the future holds. They frequently worry about medical and hospital bills. Sometimes the injury means that special equipment must be installed in the home and that caretakers be hired. At Krug & Zupke, P.C., our lawyers advocate forcefully to help compensate families for these costs.
- Traumatic brain and closed-head injury: People with traumatic brain injuries often experience headaches. They frequently become forgetful or disoriented. Often friends and family feel that their personality has changed. This can have a tremendous impact on accident victims and the people in their lives.
- Amputations: When an injury results in a lost limb, the physical, emotional, and financial impact can place a huge burden on the victim and their family.
- Spinal cord injury: When an accident victim’s spinal cord has been damaged resulting in paraplegia or quadriplegia, their life is completely changed. The injury creates a need for specialized equipment like motorized wheelchairs, ramps, or even a remodeled home. It also may require career transitions if the victim can no longer perform their job.
- Internal organ injury: Injury to highly sensitive internal organs can be agonizing.
The insurance company’s calculations may not be in your best interest
When an injury is sustained that is going to require on-going care, the insurance company makes a settlement offer based on a calculation of future and on-going medical costs. However, their estimates are very likely calculated to their advantage, which may leave you or your loved one who has been injured without the appropriate care in their later years.
To ensure that you are receiving the level of compensation that will truly cover all of the expected expenses for a catastrophic injury, it’s best to consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer. Even if you do not have the lawyer represent you in the claim, having another pair of eyes to look over the offer is a good idea.
In the case of a brain or spin injury, the calculation should include:
- Lost wages from missed time at work
- Pain & Suffering
- Modifications to the primary living space (in the case that a wheelchair will be used)
- Past medical expenses
- Future medical expenses
- Lost potential income
