What is a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injury as a category covers a spectrum of life changing and life ending events from wrongful death and limb dismemberment, to paralysis and severe brain damage (TBI). It can also include severe burns and spinal cord injuries resulting in years of aftercare with permanent disability and/or disfigurement, along with mental anguish situations where an injury has caused depression, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder, just to name a few. And in many cases, the injury impacts the family as well as the victim due to ongoing medical care needs. Our catastrophic injury attorneys fight for our clients so they have less to worry about and can focus on healing physical and emotional wounds or recovering from a loss of life.
