What Is a “Catastrophic Injury?”
A catastrophic injury is exactly that – catastrophic. Injuries of
this type have horrific, life-changing consequences and often cannot be
recovered from, requiring an injured person to undergo multiple surgeries
and a lifetime of medical treatment. In some cases, catastrophically injured
individuals may be required to employ round-the-clock care in order to
cope with their day-to-day lives. Examples of catastrophic injuries can include
spinal cord injuries, severe
burns, paralysis, amputations, permanent scarring, and crushing injuries.
Catastrophic injuries can occur as a result of a wide range of accidents,
Catastrophic injuries are frequently the result of another party’s
negligent actions. If it can be proven that your injuries were indeed
caused by someone else’s wrongdoing, you may be entitled to recover
compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional
distress, and reduced quality of life. Our attorneys can help you file
a claim against those responsible and advocate for maximum compensation
on your behalf.
How Are Damages Calculated?
When a defendant is found liable for a plaintiff’s injuries, they
are required to pay compensatory damages in an attempt to “make
the plaintiff whole.” This can be difficult in catastrophic injury
cases, as no amount of money will ever fully compensate someone for the
loss of a limb or other life-altering injury. In these cases, attorneys
must often undergo complicated and elaborate negotiations in order to
ensure all aspects of an injured person’s losses are covered, including:
- Consulting with medical experts
- Calculating the costs of ongoing medical treatments
- Determining the amount of wages the plaintiff would lose throughout the
course of their lifetime
As a result, settlements for catastrophic injury claims are often much
higher than claims involving less-severe injuries. Our attorneys are skilled
in negotiating claims of this complexity and can ensure all of your losses
are taken into account.
