Car and Truck Accidents

Kathleen McLaughlin

While  working as an Emergency Room nurse, Kathleen cared for thousands of accident victims with every imaginable injury.  That experience uniquely qualifies her to instantly identify and evaluate the severity of  clients’ injuries  and interpret X-ray, MRI and CT scan reports, without hiring costly experts.  

Kathleen’s clinical knowledge of  critically-ill and  severely-injured patients,  enables  her  to recognize  underlying, often untreated  medical conditions such as sleep apnea and epileptic seizures that are major contributors to car and  truck accidents.   

Kathleen begins your representation with a comprehensive personal interview to discuss your injuries,  the facts of your case and  review  of your medical records. If you do not have your records, Kathleen will order complete and certified copies. The interview can be conducted by Zoom, telephone, or in person. *Kathleen also offers home and hospital  appointments.

She prepares Advance Directives or “Living Wills”  and Healthcare Proxy. Kathleen also prepares Power of Attorney documents and Last Will and Testaments for clients, guiding them   through the much postponed and often uncomfortable process of getting their affairs in order.As an experienced frontline health professional, as well as family caregiver herself, Kathleen knows first hand, the importance of having estate planning documents in order before you or your loved requires in hospital care or is in crisis. With Kathleen’s support, clients and their loved ones, take comfort in knowing their estate planning and healthcare decisions were informed and painless.
