Catastrophic Injuries

Every injury, even the smallest one, sustained due to someone else’s negligence is traumatic, and can have potentially catastrophic impacts on your life.

Trying to define a “catastrophic injury” is difficult, but generally speaking, it is defined as any injury that has significant, long-lasting effects that impair a victim’s ability to live his or her “normal,” pre-injury life. Common examples include, but certainly are not limited to, traumatic brain injury, paralysis, burn injury, spinal cord injury, amputation or organ damage.

If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, our firm can help you seek compensation for:

  • Past and future medical expenses
  • Loss of past and future income
  • Ongoing rehabilitation costs
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish / emotional pain
  • Diminished earning capacity
  • Marital and familial consortium

Catastrophic injuries can be caused by all types of accidents, even accidents with seemingly minimal property damage.

Aside from the obvious medical conditions that require hospitalization and may prevent you from being able to make decisions for yourself, it is incredibly important that you, as the victim, pay attention to the symptoms your body is exhibiting. Seek timely medical care when anything seems irregular, and remember: you are the best custodian of your own well-being.
