What You Need to Know
Catastrophic injuries often have long-term, debilitating effects. Under legal definitions, they are injuries that prevent a person from finding and maintaining any form of gainful work. Thus, the financial repercussions are severe, as medical bills for lifelong care and treatment pile up. If you have sustained a catastrophic injury due to someone else’s negligence, it is important to seek legal representation right away to pursue the compensation you need.
Catastrophic injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Severe burns
- Accidental amputations
- Organ damage
- Eye injuries
- Paralysis and spinal cord injuries
- Coma and neurological damage
- Comminuted bone fractures
- Neck injuries
Comminuted bone fractures occur when a bone is left in 3 or more pieces, or is completely crushed. In addition, both closed and open traumatic brain injuries are classified as catastrophic injuries. Closed brain injuries occur when the brain is slammed against the skull, but the skull is not penetrated. Open brain injuries involve an object penetrating the skull and injuring the brain.
Seek Compensation for Your Serious Injuries
Catastrophic injuries often occur suddenly and put tremendous stress on the victim’s family. If your injury was caused by someone else’s negligence or willful actions, you can pursue compensation. Depending on the situation, you may be able to achieve a settlement for medical bills, lost wages and earning potential, mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, permanent disability, pain and suffering, and punitive damages. While the cap on non-economic damages is $250,000, Kansas legislation has set in forth a rule to increase the amount to $350,000 by 2022.
