Cleveland Catastrophic Injury Lawyer


Serious injuries can have catastrophic implications for both the injured victim and their loved ones for the rest of their lives. 

This includes the impact caused by the injury itself, the future accommodations that need to be made, treatment, rehabilitation, and more.

The costs surrounding these changes, including the cost of the initial life-saving treatment are likely to be massive – if the injury was caused by someone else, the victim should not be expected to shoulder that burden on their own.

What is Considered a Catastrophic Injury?

According to the American Medical Association, a catastrophic injury is a severe injury to the spine, spinal cord, or brain, which may also include fractures to the skull or spine. 

However, the legal definition of a catastrophic injury is broader. Generally speaking, a catastrophic injury is one that permanently changes the circumstances of the life of the victim and prevents a person from working or enjoying life the way they would have prior to the injury.

They often result in permanent disabilities or disfigurement and have long-term effects. Because they render victims unable to participate in life as they had previously, catastrophic injuries also tend to have significant consequences for victims’ families, who may have to provide care for victims, compensate for the loss of income victims had previously earned, and pay for victims’ care and needs.

Common Types of Serious Injuries

At The Becker Law Firm, our lawyers have worked with thousands of injured victims over the years, including cases covering:

What Are the Most Common Accidents that Lead to Catastrophic Injuries?

Catastrophic injuries can happen in a variety of ways. In some cases, these serious injuries are the result of another person’s negligence or recklessness. When this is the case, victims may be entitled to seek compensation for their damages through an accident claim or personal injury lawsuit.

Common types of catastrophic injury accidents include:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents: This is one of the most common causes of catastrophic injuries, as serious collisions often result in severe impact forces that can cause devastating damage to passengers and drivers alike.
  • Medical Malpractice: When medical professionals fail to provide adequate treatment or make mistakes during a procedure, it can lead to life-altering injury or even death.
  • Slip and Falls: Whether caused by poor maintenance or hidden hazards, slip and fall accident have the potential to cause extremely serious harm in certain instances when they involve falling from heights or otherwise causing massive trauma on impact with a hard surface.
  • Workplace Accidents: Many workers are exposed to extreme dangers such as chemicals, heavy machinery, and intense temperatures. If not managed properly, these hazards may cause catastrophic injuries for workers involved in a workplace accident.
  • Product Liability Cases: Manufacturers who put out products that are poorly made, or contain faulty components, sometimes wind up being responsible for any resulting accident injuries. If the accident is devastating enough the subsequent injury could be considered catastrophic.

At The Becker Law Firm, our experienced catastrophic injury attorneys have helped many Cleveland accident victims fight for the justice they deserve after suffering a severe injury due to someone else’s carelessness. We understand how devastating these types of injuries can be and we are committed to helping our clients secure maximum financial compensation so they can move forward with their lives.

    "David worked our case with professionalism and patience in an amazing way that ultimately led to a positive outcome."
    Right from the very beginning of our case, David Skall and his assistant Jean Witt were both extremely kind and compassionate to help us put closure on a wrongful death case involving my father at a care facility. They were quick to answer any questions that we had and they made sure we were kept in the loop of this entire process. even though we were in the middle of a pandemic, David and his team were able to adapt their technology and make it all work out for our benefit. I would strongly recommend them to anyone in need of legal help.
