What is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is assumed to be much more serious than the average injury involved in a personal injury claim. There is no set legal definition of a catastrophic injury, but most medical settings would describe a catastrophic injury as one that causes immediate, significant harm that could be life-threatening.
Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Common types of catastrophic injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe burns
A catastrophic injury can also be an injury that causes permanent consequences, regardless of its initial severity. For example, if someone suffers a deep laceration that heals acceptably, it could still cause a permanent scar. The more noticeable the disfigurement or scarring, the higher the damages that can be demanded in a claim.
Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
Some causes of catastrophic injuries include:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Oilfield accidents
- Truck accidents
Maring Williams Law Office was founded in 1991 and we have been helping clients in desperate legal situations ever since. Our experience has allowed us to be closely familiar with a variety of catastrophic injury claims. No matter what caused your catastrophic injury, we can investigate and develop your claim with the goal of securing as much compensation for you as possible.
Recoverable Damages in Catastrophic Injury Claims
With a catastrophic injury claim, the stakes will be inherently higher than other personal injury claims due to the extent of your injuries. The more intense an injury, the more medical care and treatment will be needed, which increases the total costs. In many catastrophic injury claims, it is not surprising to find that the plaintiff requires compensation that ranges into six- or seven-figures.
Damages you may be able to demand in your claim include, but are not limited to:
- Emergency medical treatments
- Physical therapy and rehabilitation
- Lost or reduced wages
- Loss of function
- Pain and suffering
The damages you seek need to take into account what you will likely experience in the future—and not just the immediate future. With a catastrophic injury like a TBI affecting your life permanently, damages may continue to accrue years from the date of your accident.
When we take a catastrophic injury claim, our Fargo attorneys are mindful of just how far-reaching the consequences could be. Using our network of investigative teams, medical professionals, and other experts, we can carefully calculate your damages, insisting that you get every penny of compensation you need to try to live comfortably after such a devastating accident.
