  • Acoustic damage
  • Amputations (or loss of limb function) Spinal cord injuries

Catastrophic injuries can be the result of any number of negligence-related accidents. Common causes of serious injuries include:

What Type of Compensation Can I Recover in a Catastrophic Injury Claim? 

Catastrophic injuries can lead to permanent impairment and a continued need for physical therapy and medical aid. Victims can also suffer from chronic pain and psychological disorders. In a suit, you can fight to recover damages that account for your financial losses as well as your pain and suffering. 

Specifically, you can be compensated for: 

  • Medical expenses. Catastrophic injuries can require extensive medical treatment, including emergency room treatment, ambulance bills, surgery, hospitalization, and physical therapy. You can be compensated for past and future medical expenses. 
  • Loss of income. Because of your injuries, you have likely lost wages as well as earning capacity, and you can be compensated for past and future lost wages. 
  • Prescription and medical supply costs. You can be compensated for the cost of future and past prescription and over-the-counter medication costs. 
  • Home and vehicle modification. You can be compensated for costs associated with having to obtain and install specialized medical equipment and modify your home and vehicle to accommodate for disability or impairment. 
  • Pain and suffering. Non-economic damages aim to compensate accident victims for damages that do not have an exact price/cost, and a common type of noneconomic damage is pain and suffering, which can include compensation for a loss of quality of life, negative emotional and mental effects, such as sleep disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, and adverse effects on appearance or self-image
  • Loss of consortium. Loved ones can also be affected by your injuries, and a loss of consortium aims to compensate for the loss of physical intimacy and affection. 

In some cases, the liable party may be required to pay exemplary (or punitive) damages. These damages aim to punish the defendant for their recklessness rather than compensate a victim for specific damages. It is important to note, however, that exemplary damages are only awarded in cases where the liable party intentionally acted recklessly and with ill will.
