What Are “Catastrophic Injuries?”

Generally speaking, catastrophic injuries are those that are so severe in nature, they limit a person’s ability to return to his or her normal, pre-injury life. Often, catastrophic injuries prevent a person from returning to work or obtaining any gainful employment at all.

Examples of common catastrophic injuries include:

This list represents just some of the most common types of catastrophic injury; any injury that limits a person’s ability to live his or her life may be categorized as catastrophic.

Long-Term Effects of Catastrophic Injuries

While all injuries have an effect on the victim, catastrophic injuries are particularly harmful. In fact, the impact of a catastrophic injury can last a lifetime and often affects the victim’s family members and loved ones as well. The lifetime cost of medical treatment for a traumatic brain injury, for example, can range from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars. This does not even take into account the physical and emotional impact of such an injury.

In many cases, family members must alter their lives to care for someone who suffers a catastrophic injury. Many spouses, children, parents, and other loved ones must become part- or full-time caregivers, particularly if the victim suffered cognitive disabilities as a result of the injury. The loss of income coupled with the cost of treatment can place an enormous burden on families.

At The Mellino Law Firm, we work to help individuals and families recover compensation for the following:

  • Medical bills incurred for immediate emergency treatment
  • Ongoing medical costs, including those for physical and cognitive rehabilitation therapy
  • Lost income/wages for time taken off work to receive treatment/care for a loved one
  • Pain and suffering, including physical pain and emotional distress
  • Loss of life quality, disfigurement, inconvenience, and loss of companionship

Our firm focuses on helping victims of very serious injuries. By limiting the number of cases we accept, we are better able to provide each of our clients with the attention and care they deserve.
