What Is a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury has lasting effects on a victim’s life. These injuries often involve vital organs and frequently alter the use of limbs and other body parts. 

Examples include:

  • Spinal cord damage
  • Traumatic brain injury 
  • Paralysis (total or partial)
  • Extensive third-degree burns
  • Limb loss

The list above is not exhaustive. Catastrophic injuries are varied. However, the most important thing to take away is that these injuries often result in permanent disabilities that can necessitate lifelong care and impact daily life. 

What to Know About Negligence and Catastrophic Injuries 

Like other personal injury cases, negligence is central to catastrophic injury liability claims. If a person’s negligent actions or inactions result in a serious accident, they could be liable for the injuries the incident causes.

Compensation for Catastrophic Injuries

Accident victims can receive compensation for the permanent or extended medical care their injuries require. 

This includes but is not limited to:

  • Surgeries
  • Medications
  • Physical Therapy
  • Nursing or At-Home Care

Additionally, individuals can recover wages they lost by missing work and seek compensation for intangible losses, such as pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, scarring, disfigurement, and more. 

Families of people who unfortunately passed away because of a catastrophic injury can make wrongful death claims. A successful case can provide compensation for funeral and burial expenses, medical bills, and the loss of a loved one’s financial and emotional support. 

Speak with a Chicago Catastrophic Injury Lawyer 

The sooner you consult an attorney about your catastrophic injury or a loved one’s, the better. This is a complicated legal matter, and strategizing for and making a case takes time. Illinois’s statute of limitations for injury claims is two years. While this might seem like a long period, it is best not to wait to pursue the compensation you need. 

Our Chicago catastrophic injury attorneys are at the ready to help you. They have recovered $250+ million in settlements and possess the skill and know-how to take on cases, no matter how fraught or complicated they seem. Schedule a free consultation to find out what they could offer.
