Generally, catastrophic injuries are severe personal injury cases that often involve permanent disabilities and have long-term adverse effects. Catastrophic injuries can cause you and your family great distress physically, financially, and emotionally. Catastrophic injuries can change the entire course of a person’s life, often leaving them permanently disabled and, in the worst cases, in need of 24-hour care.
Unlike other injuries, catastrophic injuries are likely to affect an accident victim’s entire family adversely. It can be difficult for victims and their families to see a way forward after this type of devastating incident. We understand the hardships our clients are facing when they are dealing with a catastrophic injury.
In dealing with the physical, emotional, and financial devastation surrounding a catastrophic injury, we will stand by your side, provide support, and advocate fiercely. While compensation cannot change what happened or undo the harm caused, it can provide the financial assistance you need to effectively manage your injuries and help you live as well as possible with your disability or injury.
If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, it is important to understand your rights and seek legal counsel immediately.
Any injury that leaves an individual permanently disabled could be considered a catastrophic injury. Catastrophic injuries can occur from workplace accidents, playing sports, slip and fall accidents, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, or pedestrian accidents.
