A catastrophic personal injury may arise from any number of sudden events, including: - Motor vehicle accidents - Tractor-trailer accidents - Defective products - Defective premises - General negligence and wantonness
Injuries that may be considered catastrophic include: - Head injuries - Traumatic brain injury (TBI) - Spinal cord injuries and paralysis - Amputation and loss of limb use - Pelvic injuries - Eye and Ear injuries - Burns - Broken bones and disfigurement
A catastrophic personal injury can have a devastating effect on a victim as well as a victim’s family, friends, and loved ones. Of the catastrophic injuries described above, the victim will likely suffer intense pain and suffering. These catastrophic injuries may also lead to long term physical and mental disabilities for the victim, resulting in life altering consequences for the victim, victim’s family, friends and loved ones.
The financial burden associated with a catastrophic injury will often weigh heavy on the victim and victim’s family as the costs associated with such an injury can be in the millions of dollars. Not only will the victim and victim’s family suffer the burden of paying medical expenses, they will likely incur future medical and long term care expenses. The victim will likely suffer lost wages as well. Any settlement of a claim for catastrophic injury must take into account these issues, including compensation for pain and suffering.
