What Qualifies as a Catastrophic Injury?
Are all serious injuries considered catastrophic injuries? Not necessarily. In most medical and legal contexts, a catastrophic injury is one that causes a life-threatening situation and/or likely will permanently affect the victim through a new disability or disfigurement.
Common types of catastrophic injuries are:
For example, a broken arm is clearly painful and debilitating, but it isn’t necessarily a catastrophic injury. There is a chance that a broken arm will heal readily and correctly, not leaving the victim with a long-lasting consequence. But there is also a chance that the arm will heal incorrectly and cause a disability. In such cases, it can be months or longer before it becomes clear that the injury is catastrophic or not.
Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries tend to happen in particularly violent accidents, especially those involving motor vehicles.
A few common causes of catastrophic injuries include:
- Car accidents
- Bus accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Construction accidents
Thanks to our extensive practice experience in Monroe and beyond, our attorneys can handle virtually any catastrophic injury claim, regardless of its cause. Whether you were hit by a drunk driver or injured due to a doctor’s terrible mistakes, you can count on us to help you explore your legal options and sue for the compensation you deserve.
Future Damages in a Catastrophic Injury Case
The value of a catastrophic injury claim is often much higher than that of the average injury claim. The more severe an injury, the more medical care and recovery methods will be needed to help them heal from it, which increases the overall value of the claim.
For most catastrophic injury cases, the cost of future damages adds the most to the value, such as years of rehabilitative therapy or routine in-house care for people who are living with a new disability after an accident. When we work on a client’s catastrophic injury case, we often team up with financial and medical experts to better understand just how costly your future care will likely be. We don’t want to close your case with even a penny of compensation left unclaimed.
