What Is a Catastrophic Injury?

Personal Injury AttorneyCommon Types of Catastrophic Injuries

If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury in an accident that was caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another party, you should consult an experienced catastrophic injury attorney to make sure you get the full extent of damages that you deserve.

There are many injuries that may qualify as catastrophic. While symptoms of some catastrophic injuries may instantly surface, other traumatic injuries may be asymptomatic for days, weeks, or months following the initial accident.

Below are examples of common types of catastrophic injuries caused by the negligent or reckless actions of another individual or party:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Birth injuries, such as Cerebral Palsy, Erbs Palsy, and Brachial Plexus Injury
  • Burn Injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis, including quadriplegia and paraplegia
  • Amputation of limbs
  • Loss of hearing or vision
  • Internal organ damage

Any of the above types of catastrophic injuries could result in death. In fact, most catastrophic injuries are considered fatal because the victim’s life span significantly decreases as a result of the injury.

Getting the Compensation That You Deserve

Regardless of what type of catastrophic injury you sustained, if you believe another party is at fault, you should contact an attorney to review your claim and help you protect your legal rights.

The road to recovery for catastrophic injuries can be long and expensive. Your attorney can help you get the compensation that you deserve, including:

  • Loss of wages
  • Loss of future earning potential
  • Past and future medical bills
  • Pain and suffering

Jeremy N.
A few years ago I was misdiagnosed and nearly ended up becoming a quadriplegic. Three spinal fusions followed. I asked my sister, a top D.C. lawyer, to find the name of the best personal injury lawyer in NYC, and I was referred to Jeff Korek of... Gersowitz Libo and Korek. It was a tough time for me, but Jeff and Irene were great and helped me through it every step of the way. They were compassionate, understanding and very accommodating, yet professional and always with their fingers on the pulse. They really care about the welfare of their clients, and not just money driven. When I was unable to travel, Jeff came to me, and I live an hour from the city. This firm is well known, well established, and has earned the respect and credibility among its peers. I highly recommend the firm of Gersowitz Libo and Korek without hesitation and, in fact, I already have. My thanks go out to the entire team for a better than expected outcome!!! They get a 5 out of 5 stars from me!!read more
