Doctor examining patient wearing neck braceDealing with the aftermath of a catastrophic injury can be devastating for a person and can affect them for the rest of their lives. Catastrophic injuries are so named because they can require comprehensive medical treatment. These types of injuries can be caused by medical malpractice, product defects, car accidents, job accidents, dog bites, and various other things. Those who are injured need to hire an attorney to help them make sound decisions in the pursuit of fair compensation.

What are Considered Catastrophic Injuries?

A catastrophic injury is one that detrimentally changes a person's life. These injuries are caused through no fault of your own . They may result in being able to pursue personal injury damages, Social Security Disability, or worker's compensation benefits, depending on how the injuries occurred. Common catastrophic injuries include:

  • Head and brain injuries
  • Burns
  • Amputations
  • Severe fractures
  • Organ and internal damage
  • Loss of vision or hearing
  • Serious psychological damage
  • Permanent and rehabilitating injuries to any body part

Why You Should NOT Trust the Insurance Company

One of the biggest mistakes you can make is believing the insurance adjuster is working on your side.  The adjuster's job is to protect the bottom line of the insurance company. They are not working in the best interest of you.  They try to pay out as little as possible or deny claims.

When you rely on the insurance company to settle your claim, you can be unfairly denied or be pressured into a lower settlement than your injuries deserve. Because these injuries can affect your wellbeing for the rest of your life, it is critical for you to never put your future in jeopardy by agreeing to less than they deserve.
