Catastrophic injuries are any injuries that have an immediate and/or long-term impact on a victim’s quality of life. These injuries are extremely painful and affect at least one bodily system, often resulting in permanent disability, life-long medical conditions, and shortened life expectancy.
What makes a catastrophic injury different than a severe injury?
The physical, emotional, and financial strain often puts stress on those close to the victim. The lives of those close to the victim is also forever changed as the victim will typically need constant care and attention from others for the rest of his or her life.
Due the large amount of damages and loss that happen after a catastrophic injury it is imperative you contact an attorney experienced with catastrophic injuries and the complex litigation that goes along with them. Pursuing a claim on your own or with an attorney that does not have experience in catastrophic injuries could cost you tens of thousands of dollars.
