Have you or a loved one suffered a life-changing injury? We’ll get you the compensation you deserve.
A catastrophic injury is one that is defined as being so severe that it may result in permanent disability, long-term medical problems, or even a shortened life expectancy for the victim. It is very common for a catastrophic injury to involve the loss of a bodily function, bodily system, or loss of limbs.
Usually these type injuries will require multiple surgeries and long hospital stays. Many times rehabilitation and full time nursing assistance or residence in an assisted living home are required. The victim may have to spend the remainder of their lives in a wheelchair, never to walk again. It is a devastating, overwhelming, and life changing event.
Some examples of catastrophic injury are traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries resulting in paralysis, loss of an arm or a leg, severe burns, having to undergo an amputation, blindness resulting from a chemical accident, to name but a few.
Catastrophic injuries can occur as a result of a car accident, tractor trailer accident, motorcycle accident, diving accident, an accident with factory equipment, aviation accident, elevator accident, and the list goes on ad infinitum.

Catastrophic injuries affect not only the life of the victim but of their family as well. Family members may feel overwhelmed and unprepared for dealing with the responsibility of caring for such a severely injured person once they leave the hospital and return home.
If the victim was the primary breadwinner for the family, the spouse may feel fear about how the monthly expenses will now be paid. Medical expenses are also enormous in catastrophic injury situations. Particularly in cases of traumatic brain injury, the person may not have the same mental capabilities as they had before the accident, therefore family members may feel like they don’t even know them anymore. This is especially heartbreaking. The devastation is emotional and physical as well as financial.
When a catastrophic injury occurs as the result of someone else’s negligence or carelessness, the results are disastrous for the injured party. The victim is saddled with tremendous medical expenses, both for treatment at the time of the accident, as well as for the ongoing treatment, rehabilitation, and care that will be required in their future and for the rest of their lives. The thing that is so especially tragic is that the accident could have been avoided if the negligent party had only used proper care and caution.
