What is a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury is one that leaves the victim with a life-altering disability. These injuries often require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation, and many victims never fully recover. In some cases, they are left with a permanent disability and may be unable to return to work or perform daily activities on their own.

Common types of injuries that are considered catastrophic include:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): A TBI occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. This can result in cognitive impairment, memory loss, motor dysfunction, and emotional disturbances.
  • Spinal Cord Injury (SCI): SCI involves damage to the spinal cord, which can lead to partial or complete paralysis below the site of injury. This can result in loss of sensation and motor function, as well as bladder and bowel control issues.
  • Amputation: Amputation is the surgical removal of a limb or part of a limb due to injury or disease. It can lead to significant physical and psychological challenges, including loss of mobility and changes in body image.
  • Severe Burns: Severe burns can cause extensive damage to the skin, muscles, and underlying tissues. They may result in chronic pain, disfigurement, and impairment of mobility and function.
  • Multiple Fractures: Multiple fractures involve the breaking of multiple bones in the body, often due to high-impact trauma. These injuries can require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation to regain function and mobility.
  • Organ Damage: Damage to internal organs such as the heart, lungs, liver, or kidneys can result from trauma or medical procedures. Organ damage can lead to life-threatening complications and long-term health issues.
  • Vision or Hearing Loss: Catastrophic injuries can also include permanent loss of vision or hearing due to trauma or medical conditions. These sensory impairments can significantly impact an individual's quality of life and independence.

Victims of catastrophic injuries often require lifelong medical care and treatment. They may also need to make modifications to their homes and vehicles to accommodate their disabilities. These modifications can be expensive, and victims may also be unable to return to work and earn a living.

    "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.
