What Constitutes a Catastrophic Injury?
A "catastrophic injury" refers to any injury that inflicts significant, life-altering harm on an individual, profoundly affecting their quality of life. After such an injury, victims often become dependent on others for activities they were once able to do independently, such as bathing, walking, commuting, working certain jobs, and more. This dependence can last for a short period or for the remainder of their lives.
Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries encompass a wide range of extremely harmful conditions, including but not limited to:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries
- Burn injuries
- Organ damage
- Blunt force trauma
- Hearing loss
- Neck and back injuries
- Vision loss
These injuries are commonly categorized as physical, spinal cord, or cognitive. Physical catastrophic injuries involve limb amputation, spinal cord injuries result in mobility issues, and cognitive injuries cause significant damage to the brain.
Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
These injuries can occur in a variety of situations, including:
- car accidents
- workplace accidents
- medical malpractice
- sports & recreational activities
- defective products
- acts of violence
- explosions & fires
- medical conditions
- natural disasters
Compensation Available to Victims of Serious Injuries
Compensation for catastrophic injuries aims to reflect the harm inflicted upon the injured individual and their family. Victims often face substantial medical expenses and endure emotional trauma. Moreover, their families often sacrifice their own plans and careers to care for the injured. As a result, the severity of the injury and its effects usually correlate with higher settlement amounts or verdicts.
Victims may be entitled to compensation for:
- Emotional distress
- Loss of income
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability
