What is a Catastrophic Injury?

The term catastrophic injury refers to an injury that is permanent and/or has a lasting negative effect on your quality of life. A catastrophic injury may have any number of causes that may be completely accidental or intentional. In Florida, auto accidents are the most common cause, especially when a truck or motorcycle are involved.  However, catastrophic injury can result from:

  • Workplace accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Pharmaceutical injuries
  • Physical assaults and shootings
  • Defective products
  • Slip and Falls
  • and many other situations

Some of the injuries that can fall under the umbrella of catastrophic include, but are not limited to:

Though these types of injuries can be quite diverse, they have a common thread. Catastrophic injuries require extensive and expensive medical treatment involving diagnostic tests, hospitalization, and specialist intervention. Physical therapy, vocational rehabilitation, and psychiatric treatment may be required to make any type of recovery, and many victims never recover at all.

Who is Liable in a Serious Accident that Causes Catastrophic Injuries?

The responsible party in a catastrophic injury case is not always evident. For example, a collision with a truck might seem to involve only two parties, but manufacturers, trucking companies, and insurers could be responsible for the accident as well. In addition, such accidents usually generate paperwork; an extensive medical investigation and review of records must occur in order to establish the evidence a victim needs to claim compensation.

What Kind of Damages Can Be Awarded in A Catastrophic Injury Claim?

As the plaintiff in a personal injury lawsuit, you may be able to pursue compensation for any of the following damages:

  • Current medical bills.
  • Future medical bills resulting from your injury. (This could include medical treatment for chronic conditions, such as pain; and future surgeries, such as skin grafts or plastic surgery.)
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation costs.
  • Permanent injury or disability.
  • Loss of a limb.
  • Home and vehicle modifications (such as wheelchair ramps and wheelchair lifts).
  • Past and future lost wages.
  • Loss of career or earning capacity.
  • Diminished earning capacity.
  • Mental anguish and emotional duress.
  • Damages for loss of enjoyment of life.

To find out exactly what kind of damages you can claim in your case, it’s important that you consult an attorney. A legal professional may be able to examine the specifics of your claim and point out potential damages you hadn’t thought of.
