What is a Catastrophic Injury?

Catastrophic injuries are those that are life-altering and result in permanent disabilities. These injuries often render victims unable to return to work and require ongoing medical care, including rehabilitative therapy. In some cases, victims of catastrophic injuries may never be able to live independently.

Some examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Amputation and limb loss
  • Paralysis, including paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Severe burn injuries
  • Blindness
  • Neurological damage
  • Organ damage
  • Severe brain injuries

What Is the Difference Between Catastrophic and Severe Injuries?

Severe injuries are those that are serious and require immediate medical attention. However, unlike catastrophic injuries, severe injuries do not result in permanent disabilities. For example, a severe injury may be a broken bone, a severe laceration, or a head injury that causes a concussion.

Catastrophic injuries, on the other hand, are more serious and result in permanent disabilities. These injuries are often life-changing for victims and their families, and they may require lifelong care.

What Causes Catastrophic Injuries?

Catastrophic injuries can be caused by a wide range of accidents and incidents. In many cases, these injuries are the result of someone else’s negligence.

Some examples of the types of accidents that can result in catastrophic injuries include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Defective product incidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Slip and fall incidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Violent crimes

Types of Compensation Available in Catastrophic Injury Cases

When a person suffers a catastrophic injury, they may require ongoing medical care, including surgery, rehabilitative therapy, and more. They may also be unable to work, either temporarily or permanently. In some cases, catastrophic injuries result in permanent disabilities that hinder a person’s ability to live independently.

Given the severity of these injuries and the impact they have on a person’s life, the amount of compensation available in a catastrophic injury case is often significant. While no amount of money can undo the damage caused by a catastrophic injury, compensation can help victims and their families move forward and rebuild their lives.

Some of the most common types of damages available in catastrophic injury cases include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitative therapy costs
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Disability-related accommodations
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
