What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
While all injuries that you suffer are traumatic and life-changing, some injuries can have a permanent outcome on your quality of life. An injury that prevents you from working or earning a livelihood for the remainder of your life, it is considered a catastrophic injury and victims deserve significant compensation for their damages.
Some kinds of injury that can be considered catastrophic:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Internal organ damage
- Multiple bone fractures
Oftentimes, catastrophic injuries are the result of serious car accidents, but there are numerous ways you can find yourself seriously harmed. When you have suffered an injury such as this, your first step is to be sure that you are receiving the medical care and attention you need. As a resource for you and your family, DiPasquale Moore can fight to get you the monetary damages you are entitled to.
How Much Compensation Can I Receive for My Injuries?
All catastrophic injuries are different, so it can be difficult to know with certainty the value of your case. Depending on the elements of your case, you may find yourself receiving payment for wages, emotional damages, pain and suffering, disability coverage, medical bills, the cost of rehabilitation, and more.
Some of the common elements among these injuries include:
- Permanent disabilities
- Lasting disfigurement
- Extensive medical treatment
- A possible inability to return to work
By law, the individual liable for the injuries is required to provide compensation that will make the victim 'whole.' This can be another complex area to put a specific dollar amount on. In essence, the defendant must pay enough to cover the victim's medical expenses and their loss of quality of life.
