What are Catastrophic Injuries?
A catastrophic injury is one that occurs suddenly and is so severe, it dramatically and often permanently alters the victim’s life. Catastrophic injuries can happen in almost any situation. Motor vehicle and truck accidents, slip and falls, construction or workplace accidents, and more can all result in these severe injuries.
Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Common types of severe injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe burns
Spine injuries can also result in paralysis due to extensive nerve damage. A victim may be unable to walk or communicate after such a severe and damaging injury. In many cases, the victim requires extensive medical treatment and long-term care. This may necessitate the appointment of a guardian who can make decisions about the victim’s care. In extreme cases, catastrophic injuries can lead to wrongful death.
Insurance Companies are Not on Your Side
An insurance company’s goal is to settle all claims for as little as possible. Victims without legal representation are prey to insurance companies’ tactics to do just that. Catastrophic injuries are more complex than any other type of personal injury case because of their long-term effects. Victims who attempt to settle with the insurance company may think they got an appropriate amount, when in reality, the lifelong care required may amount to twice as much as the initial settlement.
