Many of our clients have experienced serious harm due to someone else’s
error, negligence, or outright irresponsible choices. We have helped many
people file successful personal injury lawsuits, alleviate the personal
financial burden created by those injuries, and afford the medical care
necessary to make a full recovery. Catastrophic injuries, however, are
far more devastating to individuals and their families and require a different
approach to seeking compensation.
What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
In most personal injury cases, people are able to sue for the compensation
they need, spend time healing and recovering. For the most part, they
get better and are able to resume life as usual.
However, catastrophic injuries result in often-permanent damage that creates
many additional problems, intense personal suffering, and incalculable
burdens for injured persons and their loved ones. Common forms of catastrophic
- Injury to the brain, head, neck, or spinal cord
- Multiple fractures
- Serious burns
- Serious harm to internal organs and soft tissues
How Can Catastrophic Injuries Happen and Who Can Be Held Liable?
Catastrophic injuries can result from car accidents, motorcycle crashes,
medical malpractice, surgical never events, and any number of other sources,
and anyone can be held liable if their negligence caused the injury. This
includes employers, owners and operators of the premise where the injury
occurred, drivers and operators of other motor vehicles, doctors and medical
professionals, and so on.
What Does a Catastrophic Injury Mean for My Case?
Catastrophic injuries often result in diminished earning potential, significant
time out of work, and long-term healthcare costs that can bankrupt individuals
and their families. The overall cost to families rises to even greater
heights if the injured person served as the family’s primary provider
until the point of injury. Even if a single person with no dependents
suffers a catastrophic injury, the resulting financial encumbrances become
staggeringly large in short order.
If you have suffered a catastrophic injury, this means you will likely
need to sue for a much more substantial amount of money in order to make
up for the total, long-term cost of the physical damage done. In order
to win the large amount you need, you will have to hire an experienced
Long Island personal injury attorney to take your case.
