What Qualifies as a Catastrophic Injury?
Any injury that causes significant harm to your health and brings about substantial negative changes to your daily life and well-being can be classified as a “catastrophic injury.” For instance, an injury can be considered catastrophic if it causes a person to become dependent on the assistance of others such as bathing, eating, walking, financial support, working particular jobs, and the like. The development of cancer caused by exposure to a dangerous chemical or pharmaceutical drug can also qualify as a catastrophic injury.
Some other examples include but are not limited to:
- Brain injuries
- Blunt force trauma
- Spinal injuries
- Birth injuries
- Neck and/or back injuries
- Severe Burns
- Hearing loss
- Vision loss
The Road to Recovering Compensation
If the negligence of others caused your injury, you may qualify for compensation for your pain and suffering, medical bills, the loss of past and/or future wages, a reduced quality of life, and/or any other damages appropriate to your case.
Please note that different types of accidents have different statutes of limitations, and these time frames vary by state. A legal professional can help you determine how long you have to pursue a legal claim. An experienced lawyer will also build the strongest possible case to maximize your compensation. Negligent parties and insurance companies will likely use all of the resources at their disposal to limit their liability, so it is vitally important that you retain legal representation with a proven track record in catastrophic injury litigation as soon as you are able.
People who sustain catastrophic injuries have the burden of proof and must establish that another party is responsible for their injuries. Generally, individuals suffering from injuries caused by truck accidents must prove negligence on the part of the other driver or trucking company, while those injured while using a product must prove the existence of a design or manufacturing defect. Each case presents its own set of complexities and challenges, so it is highly advisable to hire an attorney with experience litigating catastrophic injury cases.
