What exactly is a "catastrophic injury"?
A catastrophic injury is generally considered one that is life-threatening or that has a long-term impact on the victim. Some examples of catastrophic injuries may include:
These types of injuries may be caused by various incidents. Car accidents are a leading cause of serious injuries, as well as falls, work-related injuries and injuries stemming from intentional wrongdoing (assaults, attacks, etc.). When another person is responsible for the injuries you or a loved one has sustained, you may have the right to file a
personal injury claim against that person. For example, a drunk driver may have caused a car accident that left you with limited use of one of your hands. A lawyer at our law offices may be able to assist you in recovering money for medical expenses, lost wages, future medical care and emotional trauma.
Explaining the Need for Long-Term Injury Care
One of the defining factors of suffering from a catastrophic injury is the long-term effect that will be suffered by any of the victims. Due to this, it is often necessary for the victim to invest in long-term treatment and pain management to help their life return to some level of normalcy. This is a combination of both medical and non-medical treatment to help reach goals of healing, as well as carrying out everyday functions.
This is not a cheap investment. Depending on the severity of the injury, these prices can skyrocket. For example, the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center (NSCISC) reported that someone with a high tetraplegia (C1-C) injury will have a first year cost of $985,774, with every year after that having costs that total out to $171,183 annually.
For a low tetraplegia (C5-C8), this will be $719,308 for the first year and $105,013 for every year after that; for paraplegia, the costs equal out to roughly $480,431 during the first year and $63,643 every following year. This can total into the millions of dollars, depending on how young the injury was sustained. For example, someone who is 25 years old at the time of a high tetraplegia injury will have estimated life costs exceeding $4,373,912. Even for someone twice that age, it exceeds $2 million.
