What is a Catastrophic Injury? A catastrophic injury is one that is severe and leads to long-term, if not permanent, disability and disfigurement. While there is no exact legal definition of “catastrophic injury”, they often entail a very difficult recovery process, multiple surgeries, and possibly a lifetime of medical treatment. A worker suffering a catastrophic injury may also be unable to return to work, either in their chosen field or any field at all. Catastrophic injury victims are often eligible to benefits, but it without an attorney to fight for your rights as an injured workers, these benefits are often left on the table and the insurance companies never have to pay. Talk to a lawyer now to find out what rights you have at (714) 442-155.
Here are some examples of what may be considered a catastrophic injury-
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Permanent loss of an arm or other body part
- Loss of memory or brain functions
- Disfigurement and significant scarring
- Back injuries (Major and minor)
- Loss of eyesight
Even though the law is designed to protect those who have been seriously injured due to someone else’s negligence, insurance companies don’t always do what’s in the best interest of the victim. The financial needs for families dealing with serious and life-changing injuries are significant and can include diminished physical capacities, hospital costs, long term medical care, and lost wages.
In every injury case, the injured person is entitled to damages: compensation for all losses stemming from the injuries and their impact.
