What is a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries tend to require substantial medical treatment, which can potentially involve multiple surgeries, extensive physical therapy, and medication. Even with treatment, however, catastrophic injuries are frequently permanent and might even impact the life expectancy of a survivor. It is also not uncommon for those who suffer from a catastrophic injury to no longer be able to return to work and to require at-home care.
Below are some common examples of catastrophic injuries:
- Dismemberment or traumatic amputation
- Brain injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Severe burns
- Spinal cord injuries
- Shattered bone injuries
- Gunshot injuries
There are several complications that can arise from any number of these injuries, including:
- Hearing loss or blindness
- Lack of sensation and loss of movement
- Emotional disorders
- Permanent nerve damage
- Severe scarring
- Gastrointestinal complications
- Respiratory problems
- Inability to communicate
- Reduced cognitive capabilities
Most Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
A vast range of accidents can potentially result in catastrophic injuries. That said, some accidents occur more often than others.
These are some of the most common causes of catastrophic injuries:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Boating accidents
- Sports injuries
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Workplace injuries
- Physical assault
The Costs of a Catastrophic Injury
Compared to personal injury claims, cases involving catastrophic injuries commonly involve larger damages due to the expenses associated with these severe injuries.
Compensation for catastrophic injuries can cover:
- Emergency medical costs
- Ongoing medical care
- At-home nursing care
- Physical therapy
- Assistive medical equipment
- Missed wages and lost earning capacity
- Emotional distress and pain and suffering
Given the fact that catastrophic injuries tend to result in greater compensation, insurance companies try to push back to avoid having to appropriately compensate injured victims. That is why it is crucial for survivors of catastrophic accidents to obtain skilled legal counsel as soon as possible.
