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 brain injuries, 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, including:

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.
