Why You Need Money After a Catastrophic Injury
Catastrophic injuries drastically change people’s lives. In most cases, ongoing and expensive medical and rehabilitative care will be required – surgery, extensive physical therapy, adaptive and prosthetic equipment, and more. Despite treatment, some will be left permanently impaired and debilitated, facing a lifetime of limitations and pain. Add the inevitable financial burdens and setbacks due to medical costs and inability to work, and many injured people are overwhelmed and confused.
If your injury was caused by the negligence of another, you may have a right to compensation for what you have suffered and will suffer in the future. You have the right to hire an attorney and we believe you have the right to diligent, experienced, and compassionate representation.

What Is Your Case Worth?
The extent of any compensation will depend on the particular facts of your case and the specific laws that apply to your situation. In general, some factors impacting damages are the type and extent of the injury(s), need for ongoing care, availability of insurance, whether the injured person was partially at fault, and the location of the accident. The general categories for damages include medical expenses (incurred and in the future), wage loss (incurred and in the future) and pain and suffering (past, current and future). Additional damages can be obtained in some circumstances.
Costs to Consider
We've Won Billions
The exact costs of a catastrophic injury can vary widely depending on the diagnosis and prognosis, however a few possible needs to consider:
Accessible Housing: Many catastrophic injury victims find that their current home will no longer be functional when they return from the hospital. In many cases, their living space will need to be outfitted with accessible accommodations such as an accessible bath/shower, ramps, stair lifts, elevators, accessible kitchen appliances and more. These adjustments could be astronomically expensive, and the injured person may require moving to a new home altogether.
Mobility Devices: Wheelchairs, scooters, walkers, canes and other mobility devices can come at an extremely high cost, and will need to be maintained and potentially replaced throughout the years.
Pain Management: This can include additional surgeries, ongoing specialized doctor visits, ongoing physical therapy, medical massage and more, and comes at a significant price.
Long-Term Care: Many catastrophically injured will need to rely heavily on family and friends for care and support, especially at the beginning. In many cases, though, these loved ones might not be equipped to handle the specialized care the injured person needs. Some individuals with severe long-term injuries will require round-the-clock care from a trained medical professional for the rest of their lives.
Specialized Medical Equipment: The cost of prosthetics, braces, feeding tubes and other specialized medical equipment can quickly build, causing a huge financial burden.
Your Montlick attorney investigates your injuries and medical needs and works with experts to calculate the amount of money necessary to provide you financial support for your past and future medical expenses.
What Are Catastrophic Injuries?
We've Won Billions
A catastrophic injury is the most serious type of injury an accident victim can experience. It is a life-altering medical condition, resulting in long-term or permanent disability or disfigurement. There is a wide range of what can be considered catastrophic or semi-catastrophic. Some examples include:
- Brain Injury – sometimes called Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Spinal Cord Injuries – can result in paralysis that can range from a limb to complete body paralysis from the neck or waist down (quadriplegia and paraplegia)
- Loss of a limb – amputation
- Loss of vision – total or partial blindness or other eye injuries
- Loss of hearing – total or partial
- Types of nerve damage
- Burns over a large portion of the body resulting in scarring and disfigurement
- Multiple bone fractures
These injuries result from a wide variety of accidents and circumstances. Motor vehicle, truck and pedestrian collisions are a major cause of catastrophic injuries. But the causes can be from medical mistakes, gun violence, defects on premises or land, work accidents, sports events and more. Blunt force trauma from a car accident can cause a brain injury. Crush injuries from work related events can result in loss of a limb. Many times the accidents that cause such injuries are ones that could have been avoided if proper safety precautions/procedures had been taken, or if defects had been repaired.
