The Costs Of A Catastrophic Injury

Vehicle crashes and other types of accidents have the potential to cause serious injuries that can disrupt your life for weeks or months. Some injuries are categorized as “catastrophic” because they affect your body’s ability to function and result in temporary or permanent impairments. Some examples of catastrophic injuries include:
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Severe burns
  • Amputations
If you or a loved one sustained any of the above injuries in an accident, you should consult with a personal injury lawyer in Los Angeles as soon as possible.


Each victim of a catastrophic injury will have a different story and a different path to recovery. Some people may eventually return to their usual lives, while others may deal with impairments for the rest of their lives. Some of the extensive losses can involve the following:
  • Medical bills for emergency transportation, diagnostic care and stabilization, hospitalization, staying in intensive care, surgeries, medical equipment, medication, accommodations at home, rehabilitation, home health assistance, and ongoing treatment.
  • Lost wages from missing work right after the injury, which can sometimes be for months, as well as lost earnings if you cannot return to your previous job - or to work at all.
  • Physical pain and suffering that stems from a severe injury
  • Mental trauma from your injuries and their effects
  • Permanent disabilities or disfigurement
  • Loss of enjoyment of life if you cannot engage in previously loved activities
Needless to say, the costs of this type of injury are overwhelming, and you need the right Southern California personal injury attorney handling your claim.
