A catastrophic injury is a condition that often results in severe damage. It is often caused by: serious head trauma; accidental amputation; multiple bone fractures; eye injury; shoulder injury; foot injury; back injury; neck injury; brain injury; severe burns; organ damage; spinal cord and neurological disorders, which can result in paralysis; paraplegia; and quadriplegia.
Catastrophic Injury Law involves personal injury cases in which a victim has suffered extensive injuries.
These injuries can be caused by the negligent or intentional act of another or by a dangerous or defective product. Because there are so many variations in catastrophic injury law, some lawyers specialize in particular types of catastrophic injury. If a person wants to pursue a claim for compensation relating to a catastrophic injury, they will likely need the help of an experienced lawyer familiar with this type of law.
With capped economic damages, a severe injury victim or their loved one can face enormous financial burdens when they have almost no means to recover financial compensation for the damages.
