Catastrophic Injuries Defined
Catastrophic injuries are often considered an injury that causes a permanent disability or negative life change. There are many different types of catastrophic injuries recognized in legal and medical settings, and our team is prepared to handle a claim that involves any of them.
Examples of catastrophic injuries include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Head injuries
- Third-degree burns
- Permanent disfigurement
- Serious bone fractures
Many catastrophic injuries are caused by traffic collisions, like car accidents and truck accidents. Others can be related to workplace accidents like construction accidents. No matter what circumstances surrounded your injury, we will be ready to build your claim.
Catastrophic Injury Damages
Catastrophic injury claims can sometimes have significant damages due to the severity and permanent nature of the injuries. Part of our work when we are your Oklahoma City catastrophic injury lawyers will be to figure out the overall value of the damages owed to you. We can research your losses and network with third-party professionals like medical experts and financial analysts to get a clear picture of how much compensation we should demand on your behalf.
Damages in a catastrophic injury claim can relate to:
- Permanent disability complications
- Past and future medical treatments
- Lost wages while recovering
- Permanently reduced income-earning ability
- Permanent scarring or disfigurement
- Lowered enjoyment of life
- Shortened life expectancy
- And more
The purpose of the compensation is to make the victim/plaintiff “whole” again. In other words, it should help you return to how you were before the accident, or as close to that state as possible.
Oklahoma Comparative Negligence for Catastrophic Injuries
What happens if you were partly responsible for the accident that left you catastrophically injured? In Oklahoma, there is a comparative negligence rule that effectively stops claims filed by plaintiffs who are equally or mostly liable for their injuries and losses. For this reason, it is important to work with an injury law firm that knows how to fight to keep your liability as low as possible. If your liability is kept at 0%, then you can demand 100% of the compensation owed to you.
