Danbury Serious Injuries Attorney
What are Catastrophic Injuries?
Legally speaking, there are different classes of injuries. Most injuries fall into the less severe class: injuries that are harmful and painful, but ultimately can be healed. However, some injuries are what’s known as “catastrophic”—injuries which are life-changing, that leave the victim unable to move, work, or function in the same way they did before.
Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries include:
Each of these injuries are ultimately permanent, requiring months or years of medical treatment and rehabilitation before life goes back to normal. Even when neurological injuries “heal” within a few months, people are left with limited function for years after the injury. As a result, these injuries incur far larger costs—and demand higher amounts of compensation in court.
Compensation for Catastrophic Injuries
The losses common to most catastrophic injuries include economic and non-economic damages:
- Medical treatment
- Lost wages
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of quality of life
- Lower earning ability
- Emotional pain and suffering / mental anguish
- Social isolation
While some of these may seem like strange things to include monetary compensation for, studies show that there’s a tangible health cost to social isolation, loss of consortium, and lower quality of life. When someone has to adjust to the trauma and heartbreak of a catastrophic injury, they shouldn’t be subjected to the stress of making an income or providing for themselves. Our team helps make sure our clients receive the financial stability they need to move forward.
