Personal injury cases are complicated and hard to prove. Each case is different and requires specific strategies and often experts to recover compensation. The cases involving catastrophic injury are more complicated as the stakes are higher for the parties involved.
A catastrophic injury will alter your life significantly. It may destroy a person’s normal life and at the same time, even worse, ruin them financially. However, with the help of an experienced attorney, your financial losses may be mitigated by recovering money from the at-fault party.
Catastrophic Injuries Explained
Catastrophic injuries are identified based on their severity and impact on normal life. Any injury which is so severe that it leaves a permanent effect on the victim is a catastrophic injury. Catastrophic injuries may have short-term, long-term, or both types of effects on the person’s life. A catastrophic injury prevents a person from doing productive work and leading a normal life. Certainly not the same life that the victim had before the injury occurred. Some victims of a catastrophic injury may never recover and the damage they endure may be permanent.
There is no defined set of injuries that can be termed a catastrophic injury. They can be identified based on their severity and impact on day-to-day life. Below some examples of catastrophic injuries are given:
Handling A Catastrophic Injury Claim
Catastrophic injuries leave our clients facing unimaginable challenges. Some can never go back to their normal life or engage in any productive work. Sometimes long-term treatment is necessary, which can ruin a person financially without proper support.

These factors help explain why the amount of compensation clients may receive for catastrophic injuries vary so much.
