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. An experienced lawyer can help you fight for and secure the compensation you deserve.

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.
