Definition of a Catastrophic Injury

As the person who has been injured, it will also feel serious to you. When does an injury change from serious to catastrophic in legal definitions, though? The definition could be important for the validity and progression of your injury claim.

In many contexts, an injury is considered catastrophic if it is life-threatening or is likely to cause a permanent change in the person’s abilities or health. In some legal contexts, an injury is catastrophic if it prevents the person from attaining gainful income.

Common examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Amputations
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Paralysis
  • Quadriplegia
  • Third-degree burns
  • Visible disfigurement

No matter the type of catastrophic injury that you have suffered, we hope that you will feel at least a little relief now that you have found our firm. Our attorneys have dedicated their careers to handling catastrophic injury and life-changing injury claims specifically.

Compensation for Catastrophic Injuries

A catastrophic injury can cause significant damage financially, just as it does physically and emotionally. It is not unusual for the value of a catastrophic injury claim to reach six or seven figures. When so much money is on the line, you can be certain that the defendant and any involved insurance company will be adamant about not paying anything or admitting any liability.

Prepare your claim with our help, so you can be ready for any challenges that the opposing parties put in front of you. We work on every case as if it is destined to go to court. Early preparation for litigation ensures the case is made well and gives less room for the opposition to argue. It also allows us to take the time to carefully calculate just how much compensation you should be given for your losses.

You should be compensated for these losses and more:

  • Past and future medical bills
  • Months or years of rehabilitative therapy
  • Special medical needs
  • Necessary lifestyle or living situation changes
  • Lost wages and income-earning ability
  • Pain, suffering, and hardship
  • Permanent disability complications
  • Lessened enjoyment of life
  • Shortened life expectancy
  • Lost independence

Evidence to Support Your Catastrophic Injury Claim

Our Albuquerque catastrophic injury attorneys can work with a variety of medical experts to get as much information as possible about your injury. If the defendant tries to downplay your injury, then we will be ready to counter with medical evidence that says otherwise. Building your case to be as strong as possible won’t likely depend only on medical records, though. We know how to investigate the situation thoroughly, so we can uncover many different forms of useful evidence.

Evidence that might help build your catastrophic injury claim can include:

  • Medical records
  • Expert testimonies
  • Camera footage or photographs
  • Police statements if applicable
