Catastrophic injuries cause permanent damage that is irreparable regardless of a verdict or a settlement. An injury is classified as catastrophic if it’s:

  • Disabling
  • Long-lasting, if not permanent
  • Produced a deformity
  • Requiring ongoing medical care
  • Types of Injuries That Are Catastrophic
  • Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
  • Brain injuries
  • Severe burns
  • Amputations and loss of limbs
  • Organ damage
  • Fractures
  • Loss of vision
  • Deformities

Catastrophic injuries can also lead to death in some cases. When a person’s death results from the carelessness or wrongdoing of another person or entity (e.g., a company), there may be a case for a wrongful death suit.

Why Do I Need a Lawyer?

An experienced catastrophic injury lawyer knows all the laws and regulations. A lawyer will explore the victim’s rights and offer advice on how to proceed in the case.

It’s challenging to grasp how much a catastrophic injury can impact different parts of the victim’s life, not to mention their loved ones. A catastrophic injury lawyer could help reach a settlement that will ease the financial burdens associated with the injury.

Examples include:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Therapy expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering
