Under the law, a catastrophic injury is any injury that completely precludes the victim from performing gainful work in the future. Nearly any type of accident can lead to a catastrophic injury. For example, if you are in an automobile accident that results in a brain injury that affects your memory and response time, you will not be able to hold a job in the future. Catastrophic injury cases differ from standard personal injury cases since the stakes are higher. We will not only be fighting for compensation and damages, we will be fighting for a lifetime of medical and financial support for the accident victim.
Know your rights
Catastrophic injury victims have a right to seek compensation for their losses. In these situations, “losses” don’t just apply to missed work and past medical expenses. As a catastrophic injury victim, you have the right to seek compensation for missed future wages, ongoing medical expenses, diminished quality of life, and permanent disability coverage. If your life is altered, then you deserve to seek damages that will help to support you for the rest of your life.
Understanding your Injuries:
Catastrophic injuries are often complex and lead to intense, ongoing struggles. Below is a list of injuries that are considered catastrophic in the state of California. Understanding what you are most likely to experience can help you to deal with an injury that will most likely be with you for life.
- Burn injuries that can result in nerve damage.
- Multiple bone fractures that can result in diminished mobility.
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) which can slow mental processing abilities.
- Amputations that lead to diminished mobility and an inability to perform work.
If something feels unsafe to you, listen to your gut and remove yourself from that situation until all safety concerns are addressed.
