Catastrophic Injury Lawyer


Catastrophic injuries are defined as injuries that result in serious and permanent effects on the victim’s health and well-being. Those suffering from a catastrophic injury may require long-term care, see their quality of life diminish, and be forced to bear steep medical and rehabilitative costs. In many cases, they could also be left unable to work, so paying for those expenses becomes even more difficult. If you’ve suffered an injury of this kind you need a catastrophic injury lawyer.

When severe injuries result from an accident that was someone else’s fault, the injured individual may be able to file a civil lawsuit against the at-fault party in order to claim compensation for their injuries. These cases can be highly complex, however, so if you wish to file a lawsuit for your damages, you may need to speak to a catastrophic injury lawyer.

Negligence and Catastrophic Injuries

Legally, everyone is expected to take a reasonable duty of care towards everyone else in order to ensure their safety. If someone fails to do this and injures someone else as a result, the at-fault party can be considered negligent, and those injured may file a lawsuit against the at-fault party.

However, for a catastrophic injury victim to have valid grounds for a lawsuit, the accident that caused their injury must be the fault of someone else. For example, if a property owner walks down their own driveway and suffers a catastrophic head injury after slipping on a patch of ice, they would not be able to sue anyone for damages as the negligence was their own in not clearing their driveway. Conversely, if someone else enters the property and slips on the same patch of ice, the property owner may have a lawsuit filed against them for their negligence in removing the ice.

In a multi-vehicle accident, for instance, it can be difficult to determine who the more negligent party was. This is why anyone who suffers a catastrophic injury may benefit from speaking to a catastrophic injury lawyer who could help them establish negligence in their accident.

Compensation Available for Catastrophic Injury Cases

There are two types of compensation available in catastrophic injury case: economic and non-economic. Economic damages, or compensation, are those that have an actual dollar value attached to them. These can include medical bills, rehabilitation and treatment costs, lost income, property damage, and any other expense related to the accident.

Non-economic damages include compensation for intangible losses such as pain and suffering and emotional distress. These types of injuries can change a person’s life in just a moment and result in life-changing consequences and trauma. While these types of injuries may not have a specific dollar value attached to them, they are compensable injuries all the same.

Although catastrophic injuries may be much more significant than other types of personal injuries, the statute of limitations for suits related to them remains the same. In most cases, an injured individual only has two years from the date of injury to file their lawsuit. This is not a lot of time, so it is important that anyone that has suffered a catastrophic injury seek legal assistance right away.

If you have suffered a catastrophic injury and you believe it was the fault of someone else, a catastrophic injury lawyer could provide the help you need to effectively pursue compensation. This is a time of adjustment and recovery, and that is all you should be focused on; your attorney could manage the rest on your behalf. Call today to schedule a consultation.
