All injuries can be inconvenient, and some can be particularly serious, but when does an injury become catastrophic? Most generally, an injury is considered catastrophic when it permanently prevents an individual from earning money or otherwise living the life they had before the accident.

In the majority of cases, victims of a catastrophic injury are permanently disabled or disfigured.

Who Is Responsible for My Catastrophic Injury?

If you were injured in a multi-vehicle car accident, at a construction site or workplace, or on someone else’s property, you may be able to hold an individual or institution responsible for your catastrophic injury.

How Can Damages Help?

Filing a lawsuit can help you obtain the financial security you need to help cover:

  • The loss of your future wages
  • Medical bills
  • Rehabilitative care
  • Special needs related to your injury

In addition to taking care of you logistically, the payment of damages can compensate you for pain and suffering, mental anguish, and lost quality of life.
