Catastrophic injuries are those which have a long-term effect on the life of the victim. They are often life-threatening and life-altering injuries which require extensive medical care, rehabilitative treatment, medical equipment, nursing care or personal assistance long after the accident or event has occurred which caused them. In many cases, these injuries lead to permanent disability, affecting not only the life of the victim but family members as well who must be depended upon for care and support. Without adequate compensation, the victim and his or her family face physical, emotional, and financial hardships which may be insupportable. Such injuries can quickly lead to financial ruin.
Injuries that are considered catastrophic can leave a person suffering from permanent disabilities directly affecting their quality of life. Even basic daily activities can prove difficult when you have sustained a catastrophic injury. Many victims of brain injuries and spinal cord injuries become overwhelmed with medical expenses and are unable to recover financially because their disability prevents them from working or earning a livelihood. It is important that these victims and their families are provided fair compensation for their losses.
Victims of catastrophic injuries have the right to pursue financial compensation for their losses. Damages that may be recovered through a successful claim include:
• Lost current and future wages
• Loss of life's enjoyment
• Physical pain and suffering
• Mental anguish
• Permanent disability coverage
• Current and future medical bills
• The cost of rehabilitation services
