What is a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries are those that have immediate and severe consequences, such as the inability of the victim to perform any gainful work for the rest of their life. Catastrophic injuries are so severe that the victim is permanently harmed as a result.
A catastrophic injury also includes the loss of a critical body component. Examples include loss of a limb, the capacity to walk, or even the ability to think clearly. Any accident that causes such injuries to even a single individual can result in catastrophic injury compensation. You have the legal right to claim compensation for your injuries.
People also suffer catastrophic injuries because of traumatic experiences that change their lives forever. These injuries can leave them with physical scars as well as mental health issues. Serious accidents involving motor vehicles, pedestrians, boats, or passengers are some examples. Some other examples include extreme sports activity accidents or severe personal attacks.

Claims and Catastrophic Injury Settlements
When someone else’s conduct results in catastrophic damage, the affected person is entitled to financial compensation for their losses. This compensation, frequently provided by the at-fault parties’ insurance companies, is to make up for the victim’s physical and psychological suffering. Of course, no amount of money will ever fully compensate you. However, it can help ease the burden of increasing medical costs and other financial hardships due to the injury. Each claim is unique and settlement amounts are not fixed. Your injury settlement amount is determined by various factors including your age, occupation, injury type, average earnings, and so on. Our senior catastrophic personal injury lawyers can estimate the settlement amount of your catastrophic injury claim and help you claim compensation on behalf of you to compensate for your injuries.
