Catastrophic Injuries Attorneys
After sustaining a catastrophic injury, a victim is often left facing life-altering debilitations and effects. Unlike most other types of injuries, catastrophic injuries typically require a much longer time to heal, if a victim is ever fully able to fully recover. Furthermore, the medical expenses associated with catastrophic injuries can be so severe that injury victims cannot afford all the necessary treatment, leaving them facing financial burdens that are often only exacerbated by an inability to work as they did prior to the catastrophic injury.
Additionally, catastrophic injuries are often the result of another person’s reckless actions, rather than the actions or decisions of the victim themselves. Sadly, this can place additional burdens and emotional trauma on a victim in , something which our lawyers at The Law Firm understand all too well. Fortunately, personal injury laws allow victims of such accidents and injuries to seek recompense from the person who unduly endangered their wellbeing.
Most Prevalent Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries can occur in a wide variety of circumstances, ranging from motorcycle accidents to explosions to construction site accidents. Sadly, innocent people suffer from a variety of such injuries annually, including:
- Head and Brain Injuries
- Burn/Electrocution Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Birth Injuries
- Accidental Amputations
- Eye Injuries
- Toxic Substances Exposure
- Wrongful Death
These and other types of catastrophic injuries not only often cause physical suffering for the victim, but also emotional trauma and financial burdens for both the victim and their family.

A serious injury is one that disrupts someone’s life and may take a long time to heal. A broken bone, a burn injury or a back or neck injury may result in large medical bills, a long time off work and a need for expensive treatments such as surgery or long-term physical and occupational therapy.
The physical and financial challenges of a serious injury can be tremendous for the injured person and his or her family, but many people who have experienced serious injuries have ultimately recovered.

A catastrophic injury, on the other hand, permanently alters a lifestyle. A person with a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or spinal cord injury is unlikely to be able to work again as before. He or she will no doubt lose the ability to enjoy life as before. Former favorite activities may become out of the question. The injured person and his or her immediate family will have to cope with a life of disability.

Many people forge ahead valiantly after suffering a catastrophic injury and cope very admirably. They refuse to let the catastrophic injury define who they are. Lucky catastrophic accident victims often experience remarkably renewed and strengthened loving relationships with partners, spouses and other immediate family and close friends. A spinal cord injury victim who goes on to compete in the Special Olympics or retrains for a new occupation is often a source of inspiration to many.
Nonetheless, a person with a catastrophic injury needs a great deal of money, both short term and long term, to cover expenses and losses including the following:
- Medical bills
- Lost wage replacement
- Durable medical equipment, such as wheel chairs
- A modified vehicle and/or home remodeling or funds for moving to a new home
