Every personal injury case is serious. But sometimes injuries are so traumatic and devastating they’re considered “catastrophic injuries.” These injuries typically have life-changing consequences such as paralysis, brain trauma, disfigurement, neurological damage, or loss of limbs. Closed head injuries, or injuries involving unborn babies, newborns, and small children are typically considered catastrophic.
If they’re not handled properly, injury cases like these can be catastrophic in more ways than just the injury itself.
Medical bills for brain trauma, spinal injuries, and other catastrophic injuries are often much higher than victims and families expect, easily reaching hundreds of thousands of dollars. Even if you have health insurance, the deductibles and co-pays can reach into the tens of thousands of dollars. Recovery can take months and require physical or cognitive therapy, lengthy rehab, and full- or part-time nursing assistance. Time taken off of work for the victim and family members giving care can be just as extensive, resulting in lost wages that can be financially devastating for you and your family. In some cases, catastrophic injury victims lose their ability to earn a living, and may never fully recover.
