Recognizing the signs of serious injuries

A catastrophic injury may not be easy to see or diagnose. In fact, MRIs and CAT scans do not always recognize blood or tissue damage in head injury patients. You should contact a doctor immediately if you are personally experiencing or notice a loved one exhibiting any of these symptoms:

  • Sensitivity to light and noise
  • Mood swings
  • Dizziness and confusion
  • Double vision
  • Loss of sense of direction
  • Personality and temperament changes
  • Memory loss
  • Short-term memory changes resulting in consequences at work or home

It is absolutely critical to seek medical attention as soon as possible—delayed diagnosis of a catastrophic injury can cause further damage to bodily functions and reduce the chances of a full recovery.


Mr. Lapidus knows how to approach and present catastrophic injury cases effectively and compellingly. He routinely works with medical experts and individuals who are in some way involved in your case. His approach to catastrophic injury lawsuits involves—

  • Accessing the injury’s impact on a person’s quality of life
  • Creating an open environment for you to discuss what you are going through with rehab and your recovery process
  • Distilling medical jargon into everyday language judges, juries, opposing counsel, and the defense can understand
  • Making your situation come to life for others so they can understand its scope
  • Providing extremely responsive, prompt service—he generally returns phone calls within 12 hours if he is not in court
  • Doing everything possible to ensure you receive a favorable settlement or verdict
