What Are Catastrophic Injuries?
Catastrophic injuries in personal injury law occur when an accident victim suffers long-term or permanent damage to one or more major body parts. Catastrophic injuries and illnesses have an extreme impact, such as a substantial loss of an important bodily function. These injuries often result in long-term disabilities that interfere with a victim’s ability to work.
Examples of catastrophic injuries include:
- Multiple bone fractures
- Spinal cord injuries
- Paralysis (paraplegia, quadriplegia, etc.)
- Brain injuries
- Permanent brain damage
- Severe burn injuries
- Internal injuries and organ damage
- Loss of vision or hearing
- Significant scarring or disfigurement
- The loss of an unborn child
- Fatal injuries
Catastrophic injuries are expensive, inconvenient and can be tremendously painful. They can easily cost millions of dollars throughout a patient’s lifetime. Common expenses include live-in or around-the-clock care, surgeries, visits with specialists, disability accommodations, therapies, medications, and rehabilitation. In addition, a victim with a catastrophic injury often experiences lost wages.
Compensation Available for a Catastrophic Injury
We know that when clients contact us for help, they are looking for more than a financial recovery. They want to hold a negligent party accountable for their acts of wrongdoing and obtain justice for life-changing injuries. Our goals are the same. We want to help our clients move forward with the justice, closure and answers that they deserve. However, we also recognize the importance of financial peace of mind when faced with a costly and potentially lifelong injury. We fight to collect maximum compensation for every case and client.
The compensation that may be available in a personal injury claim includes:
- Current and future estimated medical costs
- Long-term care
- Property damage caused by the accident
- Lost earnings (now and in the future)
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment or quality of life
- Wrongful death damages
- Punitive damages, in some cases
Do not rush into an insurance settlement after a catastrophic accident in Los Angeles. Insurance companies are notorious for trying to take advantage of clients to protect their own profits. This is especially common with high-value claims that involve life-altering injuries. Saying yes to the first settlement offer could mean missing out on the money you and your family need to pay for your injury in the future. Consult with an attorney to understand the potential value of your case.
