Catastrophic Injury vs. Personal Injury Cases

Catastrophic injury cases fall under the umbrella of “personal injury law.” The distinction between a catastrophic injury case and personal injury case is simply that the former is filed over a severe injury, such as:

These injuries tend to have long-term, or even lifelong, consequences. For example, many of these injuries will result in at least a short-term disability, which can lead to missed time from work, medical bills, and the need for disability accommodations (such as a wheelchair), among other damages, in addition to the physical/mental pain and suffering of the injury itself.

Types of Compensation: Economic & Non-Economic Damages

The exact value of a catastrophic injury lawsuit varies on a case-by-case basis. Catastrophic injury victims generally qualify for both economic and non-economic damages. As the term suggests, economic damages pertain to financial losses.

Common examples of economic damages include but are not limited to:

  • Hospital bills
  • Physical, occupational, and other therapies
  • Lost wages
  • Vehicular or property damage

On the other hand, non-economic damages refer to losses that are not directly related to itemized bills. Pain and suffering, emotional distress, permanent scarring, disfigurement, and the loss of enjoyment or quality of life are a few examples of non-economic damages.

It can be difficult to determine which damages apply to your case. Luckily, a catastrophic injury lawyer can assist you in calculating the amount of damages owed to you.
