What Makes an Injury Catastrophic?
Catastrophic injuries are the types of injuries that change someone’s life.
Catastrophic injuries involve severe physical or mental damage that profoundly impacts a person’s life. These types of injuries typically have long-term or even permanent effects. Some of the most common catastrophic injuries include:
- Amputation/loss of limbs
- Severe burn injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Loss of hearing or sight
These injuries have major consequences for an individual’s quality of life, including the ability to live independently and engage in daily activities like work. Other impacts may include :
- Difficulty with communication
- Loss of sensation and mobility
- Inability to care for oneself on a day-to-day basis
Financial fallout is almost always a result of such incapacitating events. This type of claim differs from a standard personal injury case and is more likely to be litigated in court.
For these reasons, it’s important to seek help from a courtroom experienced lawyer who understands the stakes in a catastrophic injury case.
Why do I Need a Catastrophic Injury Lawyer?
Cases involving catastrophic injuries are often more involved than standard injury cases. In order to effectively litigate catastrophic damage claims, a higher level of legal competence and experience is typically required.
Damages can be hard to quantify, and the effects of a long-term injury can be challenging to describe without extensive medical knowledge. To do so, a catastrophic injury lawyer with our firm consults with medical specialists relevant to the injury.
The best catastrophic personal injury lawyers know that they are doing more than simply handling a case; they are also assisting a family through one of the hardest times in their lives, which is an often-overlooked but crucial aspect when choosing a catastrophic injury attorney.

Incidents that Often Result in Catastrophic Injury Claims
Motor vehicle accidents are a major cause of catastrophic injury in North America. Accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, and bicycles can all result in serious injury to both drivers and pedestrians due to reckless driving or negligence.
Accidents in pools, slip and falls, or a lack of security in public venues can also lead to catastrophe. A property owner can be held liable if a person is injured because they failed to warn people of potential dangers or remedy a known hazard.
A fire at a nightclub, a gunshot in a parking lot, a swimming pool with a faulty gate, or even a broken banister on a staircase can all lead to catastrophic injuries. In such situations, a catastrophic injury lawyer may help you identify sources of liability and pursue damages.

Recoverable Damages in a Catastrophic Injury Case
It is important to ensure that you receive enough compensation to cover all your losses. The law states that anyone who is hurt through another person’s negligence or wrongdoing must be “made whole” by receiving compensation if they successfully make an injury claim.
This means that people suffering from catastrophic injuries should receive a larger amount of money than someone with a less serious injury to compensate them for the extra physical and financial burden they face.
A catastrophic injury lawyer may examine your case and conduct a careful assessment to assist you in estimating the full scope of damages you are entitled to from the at-fault party. We will pursue both economic and non-economic damages.
You suffered economic losses because of the money it cost to treat your serious injuries. This can include any costs you have had or will incur as well as any lost revenue or future earnings you won’t generate. Examples of typical economic losses are:
- Medical costs
- Expenses for ongoing care
- Cost of mobility devices
- Lost wages, current and past
- Loss of future earnings
- Loss of benefits or retirement
- Home accessibility adjustments
Your lawyer will also consider how your injury has affected other aspects of your life. The term “non-economic losses” refers to any damage that cannot be quantified economically. The following are some examples of non-economic losses:
- Loss of enjoyment
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Emotional trauma
When dealing with catastrophic injuries, individuals should be aware that they may need to receive more financial compensation than they would otherwise. The consequences of these injuries can be felt for years or even for the rest of their lives.
If an out-of-court settlement cannot be reached, your catastrophic injury lawyer will file a personal injury lawsuit in order to recover adequate compensatory damages. It is essential that individuals who experience severe injuries seek legal counsel to protect their rights.
