What Is a Catastrophic Injury or Illness?
A catastrophic injury or illness is any health condition that drastically changes your life as you know it. These injuries/illnesses are so severe that they lead to either a temporary or permanent disability. As a result, a loved one or a professional caretaker will need to help you do the things you used to do on your own, such as commuting to and from work, grocery shopping, cooking, changing clothes, bathing, using the restroom, eating, etc.
Some of the most common catastrophic injuries and illnesses include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Severe burns, such as of the third degree
- Accidental amputations, partial or full
- Face and eye injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Severe neurological damage
- Spinal cord injuries, including paralysis
- Bone fractures, especially those that require surgery
- Neck and back injuries
- Cancers, such as from toxic exposure
- Behavioral or mental disorders, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
- Internal organ damage
- Wrongful death
Each of these injuries can lead to a mountain of debt, which only adds to the hardship experienced by catastrophic injury victims. We know that it is very upsetting to have your life turned upside down because of another’s negligence. That party must be held accountable. Frankly, paying for your damages is the very least they could do.
Recover Compensation for the Long-Term Effects of Your Injury
It is important to make sure that your injury’s long-term effects are taken into account when pursuing compensation. Many victims mistakenly ask for compensation for the damages they have already experienced, but you are also owed compensation for how the injury has changed your day-to-day life.
If you have been catastrophically injured, you may be compensated for damages such as:
- Doctor’s visits
- Hospital and ER bills
- Physical and occupational therapy
- Future medical expenses
- Reduced future earning potential
- Lost wages
- Loss of quality of life
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Lasting scarring and disfigurement
DiPasquale Moore will take your past, current, and future damages into consideration, ensuring that you are asking for the full amount owed to you. We refuse to settle for less.
