What is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is one that is permanent or semi-permanent and/or life-threatening. There are several definitions available in medical and legal contexts, but this is the overall concept of these injuries.
Examples of common catastrophic injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injury
- Permanent scarring
- Severe bone fractures
If you were severely injured in an accident, then you should speak with y our doctors about the condition of your injury. Ask if it is considered catastrophic and if your medical record will reflect it. To build a strong case, it is important that our arguments line up with what your medical providers have noted.
Large Compensation Amounts for Severe injuries
The value of your catastrophic injury case will probably be huge, at least when compared to the average personal injury case. This is because the worse your injuries are, the more money it is going to cost you in the long run to recover or get back to a sense of “normalcy.” People who are catastrophically injured often cannot return to their life as it was before, and the money that they are owed from the people who hurt them should reflect this dramatic and permanent change.
Catastrophic injury cases usually include damages that pay for:
- Extensive medical care
- Future rehabilitative care
- Past and future lost wages
- Permanent disabilities
- Physical pain
- Mental anguish
The value of your catastrophic injury claim could reach six or seven figures. This is not out of the question if you have been permanently injured in a way that disrupts your entire life. Because your claim could be very valuable, we can expect that the responding insurance company won’t want anything to do with it. They would rather throw the case into the garbage can and pretend it didn’t exist, but, instead, they are going to fight your case top to bottom and back to front. Get ready for them with our help.
Don’t Wait to Start Your Claim
Insurance companies jump at the chance to build big and strong cases against claimants, especially when considering a catastrophic injury case. Insurance defense teams want to show their bosses that they can defeat any claim that comes their way, so they might even see your case as a challenge. They could put in an extra effort to defeat your claim, even if they think it is justified.
You will only give the opposition an advantage if you wait too long to begin your claim. Call our Alexandria catastrophic injury attorneys at (888) 492-5532 now.

Catastrophic Injury FAQ
What are some common causes of catastrophic injuries?
A catastrophic injury is an injury that causes a permanent disability or life-threatening complications. It is not an injury specific to a certain type of accident. For this reason, all sorts of dangerous situations can lead to catastrophic injuries. Some of the most common causes of catastrophic injuries in Louisiana are car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, work-related accidents, and defective products or unsafe prescription medications.
How can I prove who caused my catastrophic injury?
You can expect the defendant to be resistant to any sort of negotiation you want to use during a catastrophic injury claim because they don’t want to admit any fault for causing such severe harm. As such, you will want to back your case with convincing, tangible evidence. Everything from dashcam footage and police reports to medical expert testimonies and eyewitness statements can benefit your case. Our attorneys know where to find useful evidence for any case, so leave the investigation and arguments up to us.
Do I need a catastrophic injury lawyer?
You can try to handle a catastrophic injury claim on your own, but not even a defense attorney would recommend it. The stakes are simply too high in such a case to leave things up to anyone who does not have advanced legal knowledge and in-depth resources at their disposal. By leaving your case in the hands of a catastrophic injury lawyer, all the experience and insight they have effectively becomes your own.
Are there damage caps in Louisiana?
Louisiana personal injury law usually does not place any caps on general or special damages like lost wages, medical bills, pain, suffering, and disability. There can be caps on punitive damages, though, such as those used in medical malpractice cases.
