An injury is considered catastrophic if it leaves the victim with a pronounced and lasting change in their quality of life. When these kinds of injuries are due to the negligent actions of someone else, aggressive and decisive legal action is called for. The Accident Injury Law Center is well-versed in handling these serious claims. TAILC is well-versed in working with insurance companies and medical professionals alike in these cases to ensure that proper relief is pursued for the client’s current and long-term well-being.
What types of injuries are considered “catastrophic?”
Catastrophic injuries occur when an accident victim is exposed to particularly serious trauma or a particularly sensitive part of their body is damaged. While any accident can potentially cause catastrophic injuries if the effects are serious enough, these injuries are typically associated high-speed traffic accidents or particularly dangerous industries, like construction or trucking.
Common injuries associated with catastrophic injury claims include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Serious burn injuries
- Serious broken bone injuries
Properly pursuing compensation in these serious cases is not just a matter of addressing medical bills up until the point of optimal recovery, but also assessing the long-term needs of the victim so that they continue to live life as fully and comfortably as possible. This requires working closely with both medical professionals and loved ones evaluate these long-term needs and presenting a clear and compelling case for compensation.
This is precisely the approach TAILC takes with catastrophic injury claims. These cases demand a thoroughness and diligence that not every injury firm can provide, but at TAILC, the well-being of the victim—and securing results on their behalf– is always the absolute number one priority.
