Advocates for the Profoundly Injured

Catastrophic Injury and Wrongful Death Lawyers in Northern California

Has a family member suffered permanent, life-changing injury, or died because of another’s negligence or reckless behavior? The medical bills and future financial impact alone can be devastating, not to mention the trauma of adjusting to a lifelong disability or the loss of a loved one.

The personal injury attorneys at the Law Offices of John L. Burris are committed to recovering full compensation for the most severely injured victims. We have the demonstrated civil litigation experience to make insurance companies and negligent parties pay for the losses.

John Burris brings over 20 years of experience in serious personal injury litigation. He and his legal team have recovered millions of dollars on behalf of victims of:

  • Fatal accidents
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury and paralysis
  • Severe burns or electrocution
  • Loss of limb

Estimates of medical bills, future medical care and physical therapy for these catastrophic injuries mount to hundreds of thousands of dollars, sometimes more than $1 million. We add to that the loss of income or projected earnings, and damages for pain and suffering, reduced quality of life, or the loss of companionship and family contributions.

Holding the Negligent Parties Responsible

We use professional investigators, accident reconstructionists and other experts to demonstrate liability. We have recovered damages in personal injury and wrongful death claims resulting from:

  • Police brutality (excessive force/deadly force, police dogs, Tasers)
  • Jail neglect (failure to prevent suicide, untreated medical conditions)
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Medical negligence
  • Defective products or unsafe premises

If your family member will never be the same, we seek the full compensation to provide for their care and improve life to the extent possible. If your family member died, we seek justice by replacing lost financial contributions and holding the guilty accountable.
