What Makes an Injury “Catastrophic?”

Any injury can be serious, causing the victim to suffer significant pain and suffering. However, some injuries are more severe than others. When an injury significantly impacts the victim’s ability to return to his or her normal, pre-injury life, however, it is typically considered “catastrophic.”
There is no set definition of a “catastrophic injury,” but most injuries that result in serious physical or cognitive limitations, including those that lead to temporary or permanent disability, are classified as catastrophic. It is important to distinguish these injuries from other, less-severe injuries, as victims often face unique needs and specific challenges when it comes to recovering compensation.

Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

As mentioned above, any severe injury can be considered catastrophic. However, some injuries are more often labeled as catastrophic injuries than others.

Examples of common catastrophic injuries include:

Such injuries nearly always require immediate medical attention and extensive, ongoing care. This can end up costing victims and their families hundreds of thousands—or even millions—of dollars over time. When the victim is unable to work due to their injuries, families will face even greater financial challenges.

Recovering Compensation After a Catastrophic Accident

Whether you were severely injured in a car accident, a semi-truck collision,a  motorcycle crash,recovering financial compensation for your economic and non-economic damages can be challenging. After a motor vehicle accident, you will need to prove that your injuries meet Florida’s criteria to be classified as “serious injuries” if you wish to step outside the no-fault system and recover compensation for all of your medical expenses, lost wages, and non-economic losses, such as pain and suffering. If you were injured on someone else’s property, you will need to prove that the property owner was negligent and that this was the proximate cause of your injuries. If you were harmed by a defective product, recovering compensation will involve going up against a major product developer or manufacturer and its defense team.
No matter the circumstances, the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A. is ready to fight for you. Our Gainesville catastrophic injury lawyers have more than a century of combined experience navigating highly complex personal injury claims, and we know what it takes to successfully advocate for our clients.

Our goal is to help you recover full and fair compensation for your economic and non-economic damages, including but not limited to:

In some cases, we may also be able to recover punitive damages on your behalf. Punitive damages are meant to hold egregiously negligent parties accountable and help ensure that future acts of the same type will not occur or be tolerated.
