Our goal is to help you recover the full, fair compensation you are owed for these and your other damages.
What is Considered a Catastrophic Injury?
Any injury can have serious, long-lasting consequences for the victim. However, some injuries are so severe, they are considered “catastrophic.” Generally speaking, catastrophic injuries are those that prevent the victim from going back to or obtaining work. However, there is no set definition for catastrophic injuries; any injury that severely affects your quality of life, whether temporarily or permanently, can be catastrophic in nature.
Catastrophic Injury Examples
Some examples of common catastrophic injuries include:
- Brain injuries (TBIs)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Paralysis (including paraplegia and quadriplegia)
- Severe burns
- Hearing or vision loss
- Major internal/tissue injuries
How Is Catastrophic Injury Compensation Calculated?
In most cases, catastrophic injuries don't only affect the victim; they also affect the victim's family members and loved ones. These individuals may find that they have to take extra time off work to care for the victim, adding more financial stress to an already difficult situation.
In some cases, families must hire part-time or full-time caretakers for the victim, spouses may suffer loss of consortium, and loved ones can face numerous emotional challenges in the wake of a catastrophic injury. At Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, LLP, we understand what you and your family are going through, and we are here to help ensure you get maximum compensation for your serious injury.
