What is Catastrophic Injury Law?
Catastrophic injuries are those injuries that have serious, long-term, and debilitating effects on the victim. In addition to leaving victims permanently disabled, these injuries can also place immense stress on the victim's family due to the victim’s constant need for supervision and assistance, as well as a lifetime of rehabilitation and medical bills.
Catastrophic injuries can be caused by any number of different circumstances, and are considered catastrophic, due to the enormous impact they have on the lives of the individuals who suffer them. A catastrophic injury or illness very often causes severe disruption to the central nervous system, such as spinal cord injuries or severe burn injuries, which in turn affects many other systems or organs of the body. Some of the most common catastrophic injuries include: serious head trauma; accidental amputation; multiple bone fracture; eye injury; shoulder injury; foot injury; back injury; neck injury; brain injury; severe burns; organ damage; spinal cord and neurological disorders, which can result in paralysis; paraplegia; and quadriplegia. Catastrophic injury settlements seek to compensate victims for these lifelong disabilities.
