Catastrophic Accident

What is a Catastrophic injury?

Catastrophic injuries have a long-term impact on the victim’s life. They are frequently life-threatening or life-altering injuries that need considerable medical attention, rehabilitative treatment, medical equipment, nursing care, or personal help long after the catastrophic accident or incident that caused them happened.

These catastrophic injuries frequently result in lifelong impairment, impacting the victim’s life and the lives of family members who must rely on them for care and assistance. Such injuries can swiftly put a person’s finances in jeopardy. Without sufficient compensation, the victim and their family may endure insurmountable physical, mental, and financial problems.

Catastrophic injuries are irreversible, and their repercussions last for the rest of a person’s life. The following are some of the effects these injuries have on accident victims:

  • Permanent loss of function or disability
  • Inability to gain meaningful employment
  • The need for care, accommodations, or lifelong assistance
  • The need to remain on medication
  • The need for prosthetic devices
  • The need for assistive devices, such as walkers and wheelchairs
  • Permanent scarring or disfigurement

After getting catastrophically injured, a person may never be the same again.

Catastrophic Accident victims have the right to sue at-fault parties for their injuries to obtain monetary and non-monetary damages. These are the damages you’ve suffered as a result of the collision. You must show that the other party was at least 51 percent at blame for the accident to initiate a case. Your percentage of responsibility would lower your catastrophic accident settlement if you were partially at fault. However, if you were more than 51 percent to blame for the accident, you are not eligible for compensation.

You should not try to submit a claim for compensation if you have suffered a catastrophic injury. These are some of the most challenging cases, and they usually need significant investigations to establish guilt and a thorough gathering of evidence to back up your claims.

We recognize that this is a time of healing for you and that you must concentrate on getting better. Our catastrophic injury lawyers at Gaylord & Nantais Law Firm can assist you. We’ll assist you by handling every aspect of your claim and fighting for the total and fair compensation you deserve.
