What is Considered Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is generally defined as an extremely serious injury that prevents a person from working and enjoying life the way he/she would have prior to the accident. These types of injuries often result in permanent disability, as in the case where a limb has been lost, blindness has been incurred, or paralysis has resulted.
Common Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Common types of catastrophic injuries include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Brain and head injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe burn injuries
- Organ damage
- Loss of eyesight
A catastrophic injury can necessitate a lifetime of medical care or repeated reconstructive surgeries. Injuries that require significant medical treatment or long-term or lifetime permanent disfigurement, impairment, or disability can be considered catastrophic personal injuries. Injuries this severe cause permanent disability and significant suffering and substantially shorten an injured person’s lifespan up to and including premature death of the victim.
Compensation for Catastrophic Injury Claims
If you are successful in your catastrophic injury claim, you can receive compensation for the following:
- medical bills and medical expenses,
- lost wages,
- lost earning capacity,
- property damage, and
- pain and suffering.
Due to their serious nature, catastrophic injuries often require a lifetime of ongoing medical treatment and personal care, especially if the accident victim is disabled and in need of permanent personal assistance. These types of injuries can be devastating to a family and many times result in the need for 24-hour care and assistance of the victim by family members and hired professionals.
