Catastrophic injury refers to a wide range of injuries that cause severe and permanent physical and psychological damage. Catastrophic injuries can include severe burns, disfigurement, amputation, partial or complete paralysis, brain damage, blindness and more. These injuries are traumatic, devastating and will forever alter the quality of life of the person who was injured. The victim and his or her loved ones must go through severe physical and emotional suffering as a result of these injuries. In addition, recovering from catastrophic injuries requires extensive, long-term medical care, which often leads to severe financial hardship because of the high cost of medical care and the victim’s inability to work.
The legal process of bringing a catastrophic injury claim is very difficult, and most law firms simply do not have the specific legal knowledge to prosecute catastrophic injury cases. Additionally, very few law firms have the resources to fight defendants such as large corporations and insurance companies. Therefore, in the unfortunate event of a catastrophic injury, it is important to find a law firm that has the experience and demonstrated ability to handle a catastrophic injury claim, and is not afraid to litigate aggressively on behalf of its clients.
