What is Catastrophic Injury?
An injury can be considered catastrophic when there is severe, life-altering
or long-term damage inflicted or if there is substantial medical treatment
and expense. Often, the effects of such injuries can be devastating. Medical
treatment that may be long-term or intensive can pose devastating threats
to your financial well-being. The quality of life for you and your loved
ones can be drastically affected by severe injuries and their emotional
and monetary repercussions. Whether a catastrophic injury was caused by a
motorcycle accident, trucking accident,
property owner negligence (premises liability), or a fall, you and your family deserve to be compensated by the responsible party.
Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries can range in severity from injuries that require
serious medical procedures to the need for permanent or long-term treatment,
home care, and ongoing medical expenses. Families can experience extreme
stress because of the ongoing financial, emotional, and medical demands.
Circumstances can vary, but the damages caused by catastrophic injuries
can last for years, worsen over time, or be permanent. Common catastrophic
