Let Our Experienced Lawyers Fight for You.

Catastrophic injury includes severe damage to the spine, spinal cord, or brain. Whether it was in a car accident, the result of a workplace disaster, or was the result of a terrible sports incident, catastrophic injuries can result in death or a severe functional disability.

Catastrophic injuries can result in the following disabilities:

  • Quadriplegia
  • Spinal fractures
  • Spinal dislocations
  • Disc herniation
  • Mental deficiency

Typically a catastrophic injury is so grievous it requires long-term care and prevents an individual from performing any gainful work. Therefore, long-term disability is necessary to pay a person’s medical bills and daily care.

Types of Catastrophic Injury

Catastrophic injuries are often classified as brain injuries, burn injuries, or spinal cord injuries. Whether these injuries are sustained by trauma from auto accidents or through medical malpractice, the effects of each injury can be devastating.

  • Brain Injury: The two common types of brain injury are Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). TBI’s are often the result of devastating injuries like motor vehicle accidents, assault, or falls. ABI’s , or Non-Traumatic Brain Injury, can result from a stroke, aneurysm, infectious disease, and more.

  • Burn Injury: While burns are often considered to be injuries to the skin, they can also have lasting impacts on a person's nervous system and mobility. Extensive burns can lead to blindness and life-long health problems.

  • Spinal Cord Injury: Damage to the spinal cord can cause long-term nerve damage leaving some paralyzed and other grappling with life-long pain and immobility. Spinal cord injuries can lead to other life-threatening health conditions.

Long-Term Costs

Apart from the physical and mental anguish someone may suffer as a result of a catastrophic injury, people might also suffer monetarily. Typically, those who experience such enormous damages will need to make a life care plan that addresses their health and wellness for the rest of their lives.

Not only will medical care need to be covered, but other expenses will be incoming as well, such as:

  • Making house renovations for ease of patient movement
  • Transportation that allows room for wheelchairs
  • Assistive medical technology
  • Home care and services
  • Facility care and services

One estimate puts catastrophic injury costs around $5.7 million in lost earnings, care costs, and rehabilitative services. While Medicaid can help pay for some of these expenses, you want to make sure the costs are fully covered.
