What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is a severe, disabling injury that is either long-term or permanent. Catastrophic injuries tend to impair victims in some way that forces them to live their life differently than they did before their accident.
For example, someone with a catastrophic injury may find that after their accident they can no longer:
- Maintain their job
- Or even brush their own teeth
Therefore, victims of catastrophic injuries usually require intense physical therapy as well as some kind of live-in caregiver in order to help them function. Not only can these costs be very expensive, but they tend to be ongoing. Someone who needs a wheelchair or a nurse to help them get around will potentially have to cover such costs for the rest of their life. This is why filing a catastrophic injury claim is often necessary—otherwise, most victims cannot afford their necessary treatment.
Common Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries are often considered to be those which affect the brain or the spinal cord, but a catastrophic injury can actually be any injury that is long-term and debilitating, or that has caused a significant deformity.
Some of the most common types of catastrophic injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Severe burns
- Loss of limb
Eligible Damages in a Florida Catastrophic Injury Claim
Catastrophic injury victims require more thorough medical treatment than typical accident victims, so it should come as no surprise that these injuries can be insurmountably expensive. Catastrophic injuries also generally mean that the victim is out of a job, meaning they may lose their primary source of income just as the bills start piling up. We believe the injury victim should not be the one to bear these burdens.
Filing a catastrophic injury claim for damages is often an accident victim’s best shot at receiving funds that will adequately cover all of their accident-related expenses. When you file a personal injury claim, your lawyer will calculate how much money you need to cover all of your expenses—not only those you have already incurred, but what you are expected to need into the future as well. A good personal injury settlement should set you up for life.
Damages you may be entitled to claim after suffering a catastrophic injury include:
- Medical expenses: Hospitalization costs, prescription medication, surgeries, physical therapy, counseling, and any medical expense related to your accident should be covered, past, present, and future.
- Quality of life changes: If you need to purchase a wheelchair, install railings or ramps in your home to help you move around, hire a live-in caregiver, or do anything else to ensure your comfort and functionality following your accident, this should be covered as well.
- Lost wages: If you can no longer work or need to take a significant amount time off to recover, you should be able to receive a portion of your lost wages.
- Pain and suffering: Catastrophic injuries are painful, traumatic, and heartbreaking. Your lawyer can secure additional compensation to cover the physical and mental suffering you have been forced to endure because of your accident.
