What Are Catastrophic Injuries?
Catastrophic injuries are those that affect victims for the rest of their lives. In essence, they normally involve permanent disability or life-altering consequences.
Examples of catastrophic injuries are as follows:
- Spinal cord injuries, including paraplegia and quadriplegia;
- Severe burns;
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Severe internal bleeding
- Organ damage
The most common causes of catastrophic injuries are construction site falls, automobile accidents, medical malpractice, and intentionally-inflicted violent acts. If you or a family member sustained such injuries, receiving medical attention is essential.
Unlike minor injuries, catastrophic injuries negatively affect a victim’s entire family. The victim may not be able to make an income sufficient to support a household since catastrophic injuries often leave victims unable to work on a permanent basis. Catastrophic injuries also make it a challenge for victims to assist in household chores, engage affectionately toward a spouse or child, or perform other tasks that those who are not injured take for granted.
The damages in a catastrophic injury matter are often quite substantial. As with any type of personal injury lawsuit, the damages often include past, present and future lost wages and medical expenses as well as other damages such as loss of enjoyment of life, permanent disability, pain and suffering, and loss of consortium. Such cases normally carry an enormous amount of value, but are subject to the amount of insurance involved, the strength of liability, and other factors.
