An injury that causes a lifelong disability, such as injuries involving brain damage or paralysis, will likely require constant medical care, physical therapy, or other expensive treatments for the rest of one’s life.
If the negligence of another person or organization is to blame for a catastrophic injury to you or your family, the responsible party should pay for all necessary treatments, past and future, related to the injury. In addition, the injured person should be compensated for medical bills and care costs, lost wage earning capacity, pain and suffering, mental anguish, disfigurement, and physical impairment.

A catastrophic injury or illness usually occurs suddenly and without warning. Injuries are considered “Catastrophic” due to the enormous impact they have on the lives of the individuals who experience them. Some common types of Catastrophic Injuries we can help you with include brain injury, spinal cord injury, accidental amputation, severe burns, multiple fractures, or other, neurological disorders.
A catastrophic injury or illness very often causes severe disruption to the central nervous system, which in turn affects many other systems of the body. In addition to possible loss of movement, sensation, and communicative and cognitive abilities, the injury or illness may impact respiration, circulation, skin, the urinary system, the gastrointestinal system, and other body systems.
Management of such an injury is complex and requires the expertise of a team of health professionals including physicians, consultants, nurses, therapists, and counselors. Clearly, the long-term needs of someone who has experienced this type of injury far surpass those of individuals with less severe injuries. If you or your loved one has suffered catastrophic injuries as the result of an accident, consult an attorney to learn your rights to compensation. A lawyer experienced in catastrophic injury litigation can help you learn what your rights are.
