Catastrophic Injury Litigation
A Dedicated Team of Legal Experts Focused on Catastrophic Injury Cases Helping Clients Nationwide Pursue Justice
What is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is a serious injury that results in the victim having permanent damage. Some injuries that are often considered to be catastrophic include:
Individuals who sustain these types of life-changing injuries often have limited mobility or cognitive limitations, which may last for months or even years. These injuries can result in extensive medical and rehabilitation expenses and substantial loss of earnings, including financial losses related to the injured person’s future ability to earn money. In many cases, the injured person is not the only one incurring a financial loss. Caring for an injured loved one often requires working spouses, partners, or other family members to miss substantial time from their own jobs as they devote significant time to caring for the injured person.
