Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

Because there is no set definition of a “catastrophic injury,” it can be difficult to determine if what you or a loved one has experienced is truly catastrophic. Generally speaking, any injury that results in significant and permanent impairment, disability, or loss of a bodily function is considered “catastrophic.”

Some examples of relatively common catastrophic injuries include:

Such injuries generally result in more significant damages than milder injuries. Victims need an attorney who understands the full extent of their losses, including future medical expenses and lost earnings, as well as ongoing pain and suffering and lost quality of life.

Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

Like any other injury, a catastrophic injury can result from a wide variety of traumatic events. Often, these incidents tend to be notably severe. However, even a seemingly minor accident can lead to a severe, life-altering injury.

Some of the most common causes of catastrophic injuries include:

If you were injured by a negligent motorist, our Palatka catastrophic injury attorneys can help you go outside Florida’s no-fault system and file a personal injury lawsuit directly against the at-fault driver. If you suffered severe injuries due to a property owner’s failure to maintain reasonably safe premises, we can help you take legal action to hold the negligent property owner accountable. If you sustained catastrophic injuries due to a trucking company’s negligent practices or a product manufacturer’s failure to recall a defective piece of equipment, our team is here to help you fight for the fair recovery you are owed.
