What Are Some Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries?

Severe or catastrophic injuries can be caused by a wide range of accidents or incidents, including:

  • Motor vehicle accidents: Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents are a leading cause of catastrophic injuries, particularly brain and spinal cord injuries.
  • Workplace accidents: Catastrophic injuries can also occur in workplace accidents, such as falls from heights, exposure to hazardous chemicals, and machinery accidents.
  • Premises liability accidents: Injuries from a dog attack can cause severe scarring and disfigurement, while other catastrophic injuries, such as neck and spine injuries, may result from a slip and fall accident.
  • Sports injuries: Sports-related injuries, particularly in contact sports like football and hockey, can lead to severe injuries, such as traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries.
  • Defective products: Defective or dangerous products, such as defective auto parts, can cause catastrophic injuries to consumers.

If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, it is important to seek legal counsel from an experienced severe injury attorney who can help you understand your legal options.

When Should I Hire a Catastrophic Injury Attorney?

Following an accident that caused a catastrophic injury, it's important to understand your opportunities for financial recovery. Personal injury cases can be complex. Trusting your case to an expert attorney with the experience to help you through this difficult time can make a difference in the outcome of your case. In Virginia, victims of personal injuries are allowed up to two years from the date of their accident to bring their case forward.

Contacting an attorney can help ensure that helpful information or evidence is gathered such as witness statements, photographic evidence, or information from the scene of the accident. It's important to contact an attorney shortly after your accident as this information may be time sensitive.

What Damages Can I Recover in a Catastrophic Injury Lawsuit?

In a catastrophic injury lawsuit, you may be able to recover damages for a variety of losses you have suffered as a result of your injury. These damages can be divided into two main categories: economic and non-economic.

Economic damages include quantifiable things like:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • And other financial losses

This can include both past and future costs related to your injury, such as ongoing medical treatment or rehabilitation expenses.

Non-economic damages, on the other hand, are losses that are more difficult to put a specific dollar value on. These damages can include:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • And other intangible losses that have affected your quality of life

The amount of damages you can recover in a catastrophic injury lawsuit will depend on the specific circumstances of your case, including the severity of your injury and the impact it has had on your life. It is important to work with an experienced attorney who can help guide you through the process and fight for the compensation you deserve.
