What is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is a serious injury that has a permanent effect on your life. These injuries often require long-term or lifelong care, and they can prevent you from working or participating in activities you once enjoyed. Here are three of the most common catastrophic injuries:
A brain injury can have several different effects, depending on the location and severity of the injury. Some common effects of brain injuries include loss of sensation, memory loss, and changes in mood or personality. Brain injuries can be incredibly difficult to cope with, both for the injured person and their loved ones.
Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury (SCI) occurs when there is damage to the spinal cord itself or to the nerves at the end of the spinal cord. SCIs can cause a variety of problems, including paralysis, loss of sensation, and problems with bowel and bladder control. Like brain injuries, SCIs can have a profound effect on every aspect of your life.
The loss of a limb is always devastating, but it can be especially difficult if it is the result of an accident that could have been prevented. Amputees often suffer from chronic pain, phantom limb syndrome, and depression.
Compensation You Can Recover in a Catastrophic Injury Claim
Catastrophic injuries can have a devastating impact on every area of your life. Not only do you have to deal with the pain and suffering caused by your injuries, but you may also be facing substantial financial loss. Fortunately, if your injuries were caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to the following damages:
Compensation for Your Medical Bills
If you have been seriously injured, chances are you have incurred significant medical expenses as a result. These can include hospitalization costs, doctor’s visits, physical therapy, and any future medical care that may be necessary. You can recover these costs through a successful personal injury claim.
Compensation for Lost Wages
If your injuries have prevented you from being able to work, you may be entitled to compensation for the wages you have lost as a result. You may also be able to recover compensation for any future wages that you will lose because of your injuries.
Compensation for Pain and Suffering
This type of compensation is designed to compensate you for the physical pain and suffering caused by your injuries. It can also compensate you for the mental anguish and emotional distress caused by your injuries and/or the incident that caused your injuries.
