Catastrophic Injuries in Personal Injury Cases

Catastrophic injuries refer to severe injuries that leave a lasting impact on the victim, often leading to long-term or permanent disability or disfigurement. 

Legally, a catastrophic injury is defined as an injury with “direct and proximate consequences” that “permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work.” Such injuries typically occur due to accidents caused by negligence or malice.

Types of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries generally include the following:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI): This type of injury, resulting from severe trauma to the head, can lead to permanent neurological dysfunction.
  • Spinal Cord Damage: Injury to the spinal cord can result in partial or complete paralysis, significantly impacting mobility.
  • Severe Burns: Third-degree burns can cause significant damage to the skin, underlying tissues, and even bones, leading to disfigurement.
  • Amputations: Limb loss is always considered a catastrophic injury due to its impact on a person's life.
  • Vision or Hearing Loss: Injuries causing impairment or loss of sight or hearing significantly alter an individual's lifestyle.
  • Disfigurement: This could occur due to severe burns, deep lacerations, or other types of injuries.

Victims of catastrophic injuries often require future medical treatment, including surgeries, physical therapies, and psychological counseling. They may also need home and vehicle modifications to accommodate their disabilities.

Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

Many types of accidents can lead to these severe injuries, such as:

Where negligence, recklessness, carelessness, or deliberate misconduct has caused your injuries, you may be eligible for compensation to cover your past and future medical expenses, pain and suffering, emotional trauma, lost wages, and lost earning capacity. 

The Complexity of Catastrophic Injury Claims

Catastrophic injury claims are generally more complicated than those involving lesser injuries for several reasons. 

The long-term or permanent effects they have on your life make it more challenging to assess the full extent of the damages. The medical costs associated with them can be astronomical and must be accurately estimated and factored, as will the loss of earning capacity. Quantifying the immense suffering experienced in monetary terms can also be challenging. 

Given the high stakes, insurance companies often fight tooth and nail to reduce the payout in catastrophic injury cases. They may dispute the cause of the injury, the severity of the injury, or the necessity of specific medical treatments. This can make the legal process more complex and drawn out.

For all these reasons, you need a tenacious attorney who will fight to ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
