What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
Generally speaking, a catastrophic injury is one that is so severe it prevents a person from returning to his or her normal, pre-accident life. Often, catastrophic injuries prevent the victim from returning to work or obtaining any gainful employment in the future. They also typically require extensive, ongoing medical care.
Some examples of catastrophic injuries include:
- Spinal cord injuries (such as paralysis)
- Paraplegia and quadriplegia
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Limb amputation
- Severe burns and disfigurement
- Loss of vision or hearing
These are just some examples of catastrophic injuries. If your loved one suffered a life-altering injury as a result of a car wreck, defective product, slip and fall, or any other type of accident, reach out to our team of dedicated attorneys.
Compensation for Catastrophic Injury Victims
While financial compensation cannot undo the suffering your loved one and your family have been through, it can help with the cost of medical bills, lost income/wages, and other economic and non-economic costs.
Every case is different, but many people who file a catastrophic injury claim are able to pursue compensation for the following damages:
- Immediate emergency medical treatment
- Ongoing care, including physical and cognitive rehabilitation therapy
- Loss of income/wages from time taken off work to receive care
- Lost earning capacity if injuries were physically or mentally debilitating
- Physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, and reduced quality of life
- Disfigurement, inconvenience, and loss of enjoyment
