It’s never easy to suffer an injury, but when the damage you sustain is permanent or disabling the results can be life-altering. If you or someone you love was seriously harmed because of the mistakes or negligence of another person, you have a right to pursue compensation. Medical care for a catastrophic injury can be costly over an extended period of time, and the liable party should be held responsible for your monetary expenses and the suffering you’ve endured.

When you suffer a serious injury that causes permanent or lasting damage, especially if it effects your daily routine, the injury could be considered catastrophic. These types of injuries often impact a person’s ability to work, sometimes even preventing them from earning a living, or forcing them to choose a new career path. Most catastrophic injuries are either permanent or long-lasting, which means they may require ongoing medical care, in-home care, physical therapy, or costly medicines. If your injuries require that you receive ongoing care of any type, the person liable for the resulting damage should be held liable.
A catastrophic injury can happen anytime, anywhere. However, there are certain types of injuries that are more common. Whether you were injured in a car accident, as the result of a slip and fall, or at work, we can help you seek reparation for your damages.
Common types of catastrophic injuries include:
If you were injured as the result of another person’s negligence, you may be able to seek compensation for the subsequent damages. In any case, damages may include loss of income, property damage, medical costs, as well as compensation for pain and suffering. Catastrophic injuries are life-changing, not only for the injured person but for his or her family as well. Those with traumatic brain injuries or who suffer paralysis will likely require regular medical attention, and sometimes live-in attention, resulting in an altered lifestyle for the family of the injured person. These changes deserve fair compensation from the liable party, and we want to help you pursue just recompense.
