What Make an Injury “Catastrophic?”
While any injury can be serious, some tend to have more significant and lasting impacts than others. Generally speaking, any injury that results in substantial, permanent impairment, limitation, or disability is considered “catastrophic.”
Some examples of common catastrophic injuries include:
- Brain injuries
- Burn injuries
- Internal injuries
- Loss of hearing or vision
- Serious fractures
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
These types of serious injuries often prevent victims from returning to their once-normal, everyday lives. They may be unable to obtain any form of gainful employment and could even be incapable of caring for themselves or completing routine tasks.
Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
Most serious injuries result from traumatic accidents and events, which can usually be traced back to negligence.
Some of the most common causes of serious, catastrophic injuries include:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Falls, including slip and falls and falls from heights
- Sports and recreation accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Unsafe property conditions
- Defective products
- Medical malpractice
- Animal attacks/dog bites
- Mass transportation accidents
When another person or party acts carelessly or recklessly, resulting in you or a loved one being seriously injured, you have the right to take legal action. If you suffered a catastrophic injury due to someone else’s negligence, reach out to Carter Mario Law Firm to learn how our Bridgeport catastrophic injury attorneys can help.
Why Hire a Catastrophic Injury Lawyer?
On the surface, catastrophic injury claims appear very similar to standard personal injury cases—and in many ways, they are. However, these types of cases present several unique challenges. It is important that you work with a legal team that is experienced in handling serious injury lawsuits.
Generally speaking, catastrophic injury claims are more complex than other personal injury cases. The severity of the victim’s injuries, coupled with the extensive nature of their damages, means these types of claims tend to be higher in value. As a result, insurance companies are even more invested in disputing or denying serious injury claims.
To make matters even more complicated, catastrophic injury victims are likely to experience significant physical, emotional, and financial hardships because of their injuries. These challenges not only present victims with immediate difficulties, but they also impact their futures as well. A serious injury can affect an entire family’s financial stability.
At Carter Mario Law Firm, our attorneys are well-versed in the many complexities and nuances inherent in serious injury cases. We understand the unique challenges you are up against, and we know how to aggressively negotiate a fair settlement designed to cover the full cost of your current and future damages. While we strive to secure the fastest and best possible outcome, we also recognize that some cases must be resolved through litigation. When necessary, our team is ready to represent you at trial.
