Catastrophic injuries are severe injuries that seriously impact injury victims and require a considerable amount of time and rehabilitation for recovery. Sometimes these injuries cause permanent disabilities that require lifetime accommodations such as making homes and vehicles wheelchair accessible. Types of catastrophic injuries include spinal cord injuries or other injuries resulting in paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, cancers and other illnesses, severe burns, amputations, loss of hearing or vision, internal organ damage, and fatal injuries.
We have experience with many types of catastrophic injury claims and some that we most frequently handle involve the following:
Compensation for injuries and damages are different for each case and depend on the severity of the injuries and long-term outlook. Financial recovery for injury victims may include all injury-related medical expenses and expected future medical expenses. Lost income due to missed work is recoverable and so are damages for future lost earnings due to long-term injuries and disability. Injury victims may also recover for their pain and suffering and any property that was damaged in the accident. In some cases when the defendant’s wrongful conduct was egregious, punitive damages may also be awarded.

Johnson, P.S.C., to discuss your claims and injuries sustained.
