When is an Injury Considered Catastrophic?


Some injuries are so emotionally, physically, and financially devastating that they leave the victim damaged beyond repair. Catastrophic injuries are debilitating and life-altering experiences for anyone to endure, especially when they are the result of another person’s negligence, recklessness, or misconduct. Victims are often left to suffer a lifetime of consequences, significantly impacting their ability to lead a normal, healthy, or independent life as they once did.

The possibilities for catastrophic injuries are endless, though they typically include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries or brain damage
  • Spinal cord injuries or paralysis
  • Amputation
  • Burn injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Severe fractures
  • Cognitive injuries

What Damages Can I Seek?

As with all other injury or accident cases, victims are eligible for general and special damages for medical expenses, loss of work or wages, and pain and suffering. However, depending on the severity of your catastrophic injury, you may have the opportunity to fight for further compensation for the loss of enjoyment of life, trauma counseling, future medical bills, and more. Fighting to hold the responsible parties liable is an absolutely crucial part of your healing process as it allows you to obtain the compensation you deserve while ensuring that justice is served.
