What Is a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury is any severe and life-altering injury that has lasting impacts on the victim’s physical, emotional, and financial well-being. These injuries are caused by a wide range of unexpected accidents, such as car crashes, workplace accidents, and medical malpractice. Unlike minor injuries, catastrophic injuries result in long-term or permanent disabilities that require ongoing medical treatment and care, making it crucial to secure sound counsel from a catastrophic injury lawyer as soon as possible. 

Common Types of Catastrophic Injuries

A catastrophic injury significantly impacts an individual’s ability to perform gainful work and manage daily activities, often resulting in long-term or permanent disability, severe physical and emotional suffering, and substantial medical expenses. 

Common examples of catastrophic injuries include: 

  • Loss of limbs
  • Severe burns
  • Multiple fractures
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Record-Setting $77.5M Verdict Medical Malpractice Case
  • $31M Verdict for Negligent Security Case
  • $25M Medical Malpractice Settlement
  • $23M Product Liability Settlement - Tire Tread Separation
  • $16.5M Verdict for Product Liability Wrongful Death Case

  • $9.2M Truck and Motorcycle Vehicle Accident
  • $8.5M Settlement in Trucking Case
  • $8.5M Settlement for Negligent Security in Shopping Center

Recoverable Damages in Catastrophic Injury Lawsuits

The goal of any personal injury lawsuit is to recover damages that make the victim “whole.” In other words, plaintiffs are entitled to seek compensation for all harms incurred, including both tangible and intangible damages. In a catastrophic injury case, recoverable damages may include a wide range of financial, physical, and emotional losses. 

Various damages may be recoverable in catastrophic injury lawsuits, including: 

  • Economic damages: These compensate victims for concrete monetary losses, such as medical expenses, current and future treatment costs, property damage, lost earnings, and loss of earning capacity.
  • Non-economic damages: These compensate for subjective losses that lack a specific monetary value, such as pain and suffering, emotional distress, loss of enjoyment of life, disability and disfigurement, and loss of consortium.
  • Punitive damages: In rare cases, courts may also award punitive damages in catastrophic injury cases. Rather than compensate the victim directly, punitive damages are meant to punish the defendant for extreme negligence and deter similar behavior in the future. 

By seeking sound counsel from a trusted attorney, victims can maximize their chance of recovering damages for medical bills, lost wages, and more, alleviating the financial burdens on themselves and their loved ones during this challenging time. 

Long-Term Consequences of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries not only affect the victim's physical health, but also have a significant impact on their emotional well-being and ability to live a normal life. The victim may experience debilitating pain, loss of mobility or sensation, and a diminished quality of life. These injuries often require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and long-term care, resulting in significant financial burdens for the victim and their family. 

The best way to recover physically, emotionally, and financially from a catastrophic injury is to seek immediate counsel from a skilled catastrophic injury lawyer. Your attorney can help you navigate your case effectively and pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.
