Severe & Disabling Injury Claims

All injuries can lead to considerable pain and emotional distress, but some are more serious than others. When an injury significantly alters the victim’s life, including his or her ability to work and care for him/herself, it is known as a “catastrophic injury.”

Victims of catastrophic injuries face serious physical, emotional, and financial challenges, from exorbitant medical bills and future care costs to immense physical pain and suffering. If you or someone you love was catastrophically injured in a car crash, slip and fall accident, or in any other way due to the negligence of another person or party, it’s important that you reach out to a personal injury lawyer with specific experience in catastrophic injury claims.

At the Law Offices of Ron Sholes, P.A., our catastrophic injury lawyers have over 100 years of combined experience. As a large, well-established firm, we have access to numerous resources, including six on-staff investigators and former insurance defense attorneys. But, most importantly, we prioritize client service.

What Is a Catastrophic Injury?

While there is no set definition of a “catastrophic injury,” medical and legal professionals consider an injury to be catastrophic when it significantly alters a victim’s life and/or leads to temporary or permanent disability or loss of bodily function.

Examples of common catastrophic injuries include:

Catastrophic injuries often result in physical and/or cognitive disability, leading to serious emotional trauma and distress for victims and their loved ones.

Who Can File a Catastrophic Injury Claim?

Whether you were involved in a collision with a large semi-truck, were hit by a negligent driver while riding your motorcycle or bicycle, or were severely injured in a recreational boating or RV accident, you could be eligible to file a catastrophic injury claim. These cases are very similar to other types of personal injury claims, in that you have the burden of proof in demonstrating that another person or party is liable for your injuries and damages.

Our catastrophic injury lawyers can help you prove the following elements in your claim:

In most cases, to file a catastrophic injury claim, you will need to prove that someone else—whether it was a motor vehicle driver, a property owner, a medical professional, or a product manufacturer—was negligent or acted wrongfully and that this caused your injuries and resulting damages. Our attorneys are well-versed in investigating serious injury claims and evaluating available evidence to build strong claims in support of our clients. We are prepared to take on the liable insurance provider and aggressively negotiate for the full, fair recovery you are owed.
