Catastrophic injuries can permanently alter the course of an accident victim’s life. They often occur in an instant, but their impact on the victim’s life and livelihood will carry on for years, if not a lifetime. Such injuries encompass numerous medical conditions with permanent or long lasting effects and can occur during car accidents, truck accidents, slip and falls, medical malpractice, and many other incidents involving negligence.

We fight hard for our catastrophic injury clients, with the goal of obtaining for them the maximum compensation available within the bounds of the law.
A catastrophic injury is defined as a severe medical condition involving long-term, if not permanent, disability or disfigurement. A person with a catastrophic injury will unfortunately not be restored to their previous level of functioning or appearance after a brief hospital stay or surgical treatment. Rather, catastrophic injuries result in long-term symptoms, which typically lead to some form of permanent disability or disfigurement.
Examples of catastrophic injuries are, among others:
Catastrophic injury sufferers normally require ongoing, costly medical treatment and rehabilitation. Even worse, victims normally lose the ability to work, which can be terrifying for them and their families when staggering medical expenses are creating financial challenges. Multiple surgeries are not uncommon, depending on the nature of the injury. Accident victims also need to adjust to their new physical limitations, which can have severe physical and psychological consequences.
