Catastrophic injuries, defined as severe injuries that affect the long-term health of the victim, are generally characterized by their permanence and resulting disability. Some examples of catastrophic injuries include those that affect the head, brain, neck, and spine, as well as accidental amputations and burn injuries. Recoverable damages for catastrophic injuries generally include past and future medical bills, past and future lost income, pain and suffering, mental anguish, and loss of enjoyment of life.
Catastrophic injuries can occur in all walks of life and are, by nature, so debilitating that they often affect whole families of the victim. Because these types of injuries often force the victim out of any substantial long-term employment, it is essential for the victim to promptly consult an attorney to protect his/her financial interests against a liable party.
