What Are Catastrophic Injury Cases?
Catastrophic injury refers to cases of personal injury in which an individual suffers a severe or permanent physical or psychological injury such as:
- Permanent loss of mobility
- Other permanent disability
There are a number of injuries that can be classified as catastrophic. These include:
- Severe burns – If a burn seriously affects your life, it is considered catastrophic. All third degree burns, where the burn goes down to the muscle or bone, are considered catastrophic. A second degree burn may also meet this criteria if it will significantly impact your life.
- Traumatic brain injuries – Not all brain injuries are considered catastrophic. A mild concussion where one briefly loses consciousness would not be considered catastrophic. However, severe concussions would be considered as such, along with some contusions and all penetrations.
- Spinal cord damage – Spinal cord injuries can significantly affect your ability to move and experience sensation in parts of your body.
- Blindness – Total loss of vision in one or both eye qualify as a catastrophic injury. Significant partial blindness would also be considered catastrophic.
- Organ damage – Damage to your lungs, kidney, liver, stomach, intestines, or other internal organ can be devastating.
Such injuries can occur because of an accident caused by the negligence or wrongdoing of another and include auto accidents, medical malpractice, nursing home neglect or elder abuse, workplace accidents, defective products, unsafe surroundings, and numerous other ways. They often require months or even years of medical attention, medical equipment, multiple surgeries, and home and vehicle modifications to accommodate the injured’s disabilities.
Expenses following such an injury can be staggering. Ensuring that you receive full and fair compensation for all the injury-related expenses along with pain and suffering, lost income, mental anguish, and more will require an experienced attorney.
