Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic is a big, four syllable word that has very unique implications in the legal world.

While there is no specific legal definition of catastrophic injury, you hope never to have it apply to you or someone you love. It typically includes someone whose injuries require multiple surgeries, a lifetime of medical treatment and the inability to return to work. If someone else caused you to end up like this, a sophisticated lawsuit might be in your future.

In these lawsuits, there are large damages (the amount of money) which necessitate lots of legal work. Insurance companies rarely roll over and fully compensate folks who have sustained catastrophic harms and losses. The creativity of the arguments and how your evidence is presented will make a huge difference in the level of compensation you obtain.

A key factor in determining if an injury is “catastrophic” is how debilitating the injury is and to what extent it is expected to continue. If you are unable to perform activities of daily living on a long-term basis, you need to accurately and meticulously show this in order to make sure you don’t get short-changed.

If your injury causes a permanent disability that prevents you from earning a living, it is your obligation to obtain sufficient compensation to take care of your family’s financial future. While the law says the defendant is required to pay damages that “make the plaintiff whole,” getting that evidence and presenting it to an insurance company or jury is hard work.

In order to receive enough money to pay for all of the medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering and loss of quality of life, multiple medical, vocational, economic and other experts must be utilized.

Be educated and picky when choosing an attorney to represent you. Your attorney needs to have a thorough understanding of the legal, medical and insurance process to obtain for you the “right” result. When your injury is “catastrophic,” turn to a law firm with a proven track record of representing its clients with experience, insight, dedication, compassion and relentless drive.
