A catastrophic injury can be defined as any injury that is severe and permanently alters the life of the victim. Examples of catastrophic injury include the loss of a limb (amputation), debilitating brain damage, chronic pain, partial or complete paralysis, partial or complete loss of hearing or sight, severe burns, loss of or injury to an internal organ, or visible scarring and disfigurement. A lot of the time, victims end up with more than one, and catastrophic injury can cause permanent emotional trauma.
What also sets a catastrophic injury apart from a regular injury is that many people are affected by that one injury, such as the victim’s spouse, children, friends, and other loved ones whose lives will never be the same. For instance, the wife of a man who’s suffered a catastrophic injury may have to abandon her career to care for her husband. Or perhaps, a son will be forced to quit college and go to work to help pay for the care of his father.
If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, your future is at stake. If this injury was caused by the negligence, recklessness, or intentional action of another person, you and your family deserve to be compensated. By filing a catastrophic injury claim, you can recover your losses and secure future care for the victim from the liable party.
