Catastrophic injuries devastating. They can entirely diminish a person’s quality of life. Unfortunately, they also happen virtually every single day here in the United States.

Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

There are several types of injuries that may be classified as “catastrophic.” Just some examples of potentially catastrophic injuries are as follows:

  • Spinal injuries, or other injuries that cause paralysis
  • Neurological injuries
  • Injuries resulting in loss of limb or amputation
  • Nerve damage
  • Facial injuries
  • Loss of hearing or sight
  • Birth injuries
  • Traumatic brain injuries

How Catastrophic Injuries Happen

An individual may sustain catastrophic injuries in a wide range of circumstances. They can happen in car crashes, slip and falls, or even as a result of a defective product or a careless medical professional. In any case, when someone is catastrophically injured, especially when the injury was caused by someone else, they deserve to be fully and fairly compensated, but to do so, we’ll have to first satisfy the burden of proof in a personal injury claim.

Proving Your Injury Claim

To prove a personal injury claim, you and your catastrophic injury lawyer will have to gather and present evidence that demonstrates your injury was caused as a direct result of someone else’s negligence. Some of the most useful types of evidence are as follows:

  • Surveillance footage, dashcam footage, or any other type of video depicting the incident as it happened
  • Pictures of the aftermath of the incident, including of injuries sustained and any property damaged
  • Eyewitness testimony corroborating your claim
  • Medical documentation detailing the severity and cost of your injury
  • A copy of the police report filed at the scene, detailing the order of events leading up to and including the incident itself

Recovering Compensation

As long as we can prove you or your loved one were catastrophically injured because of another party’s negligence, you should receive compensation that can help you get the economic relief you need. That said, an injured person may also receive monetary compensation for the non-monetary damages they’ve incurred. Examples of economic damages can include the cost of medical care and lost wages from being unable to return to work, while non-economic damages can include lower quality of life, pain and suffering, scarring/disfigurement, and loss of consortium, among others.
