What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries are defined as injuries that are permanently disfiguring, debilitating, or fatal. A person that suffers this type of severe injury often requires significant medical treatments, assistive medical devices, long-term care, prescription medications, and special accommodations for housing and work.
The most common causes of catastrophic injuries that affect personal injury victims include auto accidents, workplace accidents, dog attacks, defective products, medical negligence, and other serious incidents.
Catastrophic injuries may include:
- Disabling Back Injuries
- Disabling Neck Injuries
- Permanent Organ Damage
- Spinal Cord Injuries
The negligent party who caused an injury should be held responsible for these damages. This helps ensure that a family has the financial resources they need as they work to recover.
Contact our Illinois and Iowa personal injury lawyers today at (309) 794-1515 to arrange a free consultation. Our team takes the time to understand the extent of your injuries, how they currently affect the lives of our clients and their family, as well as any future impact.
Why You Need a Catastrophic Injury Attorney
The treatment of catastrophic injuries can be difficult, painful, and expensive. Unfortunately, insurance companies have a reputation for denying claims or offering subpar settlements. To avoid being buried under mounting medical and personal debt during recovery, personal injury victims and their families need a qualified personal injury attorney.
Our attorneys have the courtroom experience to go to trial if the insurance company won’t agree to settle for a fair amount of compensation.
