What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries are those life-changing events you would not wish on your worst enemy. They cause injuries that require extensive treatment, day-to-day assistance, and other costly medical care for years, if not the rest of a patient’s life. Our team can help those who have suffered catastrophic injuries including:
- Amputation/Loss of Limb,
- Anoxic Brain Injury,
- Burn Injury,
- Spinal Cord Injury,
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI),
- And many others.
Injuries that result in permanent disability present a host of challenges to victims and their families. Our attorneys can help you identify damages and liability so the wrongdoers can be held accountable and you can obtain the help treatment need.
Making a Catastrophic Injury Claim
After any accident and injury caused by someone else, you have the right to seek justice and make a claim for compensation. When it comes to catastrophic injuries, it is important to make sure you receive the maximum compensation possible so neither you nor your community bears the burden for injuries caused by the wrongful conduct of another.
Considerations After Catastrophic Injuries
Injury claims always consider future expenses but having an accurate appraisal of your needs is never more important than after a life-changing accident. Catastrophic injury victims’ damages continue to accrue over time and typically include unique needs that include:
- Rehabilitation/ongoing therapy (speech, physical, occupational, etc.)
- Future medical expenses
- Loss wages and earning capacity
- Loss of household services
- Adaptive/prosthetic devices
- Household renovations for accessibility
- Personal aide/caregiver
- Lost enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of society and affection
The extent and type of assistance a catastrophic injury patient will require depends on their situation. Our attorneys can help you map out your future needs.
Ensuring Sufficient Compensation for Your Injuries
Catastrophic injury claims should be handled by a skilled and experienced team that knows how to evaluate claims to hold the wrongdoers accountable. Having strong litigators like ours on your side is critically important, as insurers push back against high settlements catastrophic injury victims need to account for their losses. However, even the best trial attorneys must be backed by compelling evidence.

We also partner with medical and life-care experts to ensure the most accurate picture of your future and ongoing needs.
