What Types of Compensation Can I Expect From a Catastrophic Injury?
While all personal injury claims seek compensation for damages, catastrophic injury cases must be handled carefully to get the full amount for the victim’s current and future losses. Victims of such injuries often need extensive treatments, lifelong medical care, and significant adjustments to their lifestyles and career paths. Our experienced attorneys fully understand this.
A lawyer for severe catastrophic injuries can help you get the financial support you’re entitled to, including:
- Medical bills
- Future medical care
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of capacity to enjoy life
- Punitive damages in some cases
If you lost a loved one due to a catastrophic injury, you can discuss making a wrongful death claim with your attorney to seek compensation to cover funeral costs, loss of income, and loss of consortium, or the benefit of a family relationship.
If you suffered a catastrophic injury while at work, you may qualify for workers’ compensation benefits without proving fault and a potential civil lawsuit. To learn more about your legal options and how you can claim compensation, contact our legal team to schedule a free case evaluation. We’ll determine the likely value of your case and help you recover the maximum amount for your damages.
What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is a particularly severe one requiring long-term treatment or leaving the victim with permanent impairment. Accident victims who suffer a catastrophic injury are often left with a lifelong disability that changes their lives. In many cases, they can no longer perform their job duties, enjoy the same activities as they used to, or provide for their families in the way they used to.
What Can Cause a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries can happen to anyone at any time. However, some types of accidents result in these severe injuries more often than others. In particular, motor vehicle accidents can potentially leave victims with serious, preventable injuries. In fact, about 5.4 million injuries were caused by vehicle crashes in the United States in 2021.
Types of accidents that commonly cause catastrophic injuries include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Work accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Coal mining accidents
- Sports accidents
- Defective products
- Boating accidents
- Nursing home abuse
In some cases, these catastrophic injuries can even have fatal consequences. Whether your loved one is dealing with a severe, long-term injury or you lost a family member to a catastrophic accident, our team of personal injury lawyers and wrongful death attorneys can help.
