What Are Catastrophic Injuries?

According to federal law 42 U.S.C. 3796b, a catastrophic injury is any injury that permanently prevents a person from performing any gainful work. When a person has sustained a catastrophic injury, it means they suffer long-term or permanent pain or use of an organ or limb. When such an injury is encountered, the victim will usually require extensive emergency medical treatment, ongoing medical care, rehabilitative services, and often, long-term assistance. In some cases, catastrophic injury victims never fully recover, and some individuals undergo an untimely death because of their injuries.

Common catastrophic injuries include:

  • Paralysis

  • Severe burns

  • Traumatic brain injuries

  • Amputations

  • Chronic lung damage

  • Spinal cord injuries

  • Multiple bone fractures

  • Internal organ damage

  • Blindness or deafness

Determining Liability for a Catastrophic Injury

As with any personal injury case, filing a claim for a catastrophic injury begins with determining who is liable for your accident and injuries. In many cases, there are multiple parties who can be held responsible.

Potential parties who may be held liable for your damages include:

  • An individual whose negligent actions led to your injuries
  • The negligent individual’s employer or parent
  • The manufacturer, distributor, or seller of a defective product
  • The owner of a dog that attacked you
  • The owner or manager of a property where you were injured
  • An insurance company
  • Because of California’s comparative negligence law, you may still be entitled to compensation even if you were partially at fault for your accident and injuries. Your award of compensation will be reduced according to the percentage of fault you had. For example, if your total damages were calculated to be $100,000, but you were found to be 50% at fault, you would receive $50,000.

    Calculating Compensation for a Catastrophic Injury

    It can be extremely difficult to calculate the overall cost and impact of a catastrophic injury. Doing so often requires the assistance of many professionals. When you entrust your case to our firm, our lawyers can work with doctors, physical therapists, accountants, and other experts to accurately determine the extent of your injuries and how much compensation you are owed.
