An injury is considered catastrophic if it leaves the victim suffering from a permanent disability with a direct impact on the quality of their lives. Such injuries make it difficult for the individuals to go on with their ordinary daily lives.
Furthermore, catastrophic injuries won’t just affect the victims alone. They will also impact the victim’s family members who will be compelled to make certain sacrifices to give their loved ones adequate care and attention. It is therefore imperative that if such injuries were sustained due to the negligence of another party, adequate compensation be obtained.
Examples of Catastrophic Injuries
There are quite a number of injuries that can be classified as catastrophic. They include but not limited to the following-:
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- Spinal Code Injuries
- Serious Burn Injuries
- Internal Organ Damage
- Multiple Bone Fractures
Receiving Fair Compensation
Though no amount of money will ever be enough to reverse the devastating effects of catastrophic injuries, adequate compensation is necessary to help the victim cope with life and adjust quickly to their new conditions. It is also worth remembering that such victims may suffer from psychological problems like stress and depression, and these might lead to more frustration for the victim and to their family members.
If you or your loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, then it is within your legal rights to pursue compensation that might result into the following damages being recovered:
- Loss of past and future wages
- Physical pain and suffering
- Mental suffering
- Loss of quality of life
- Present and future medical bills
- Cost of rehabilitation services
