Actions Involving Catastrophic Personal Injuries

The typical personal injury case involves injuries caused by another person’s negligence or wrong-doing which are mild to moderate in scale. Most injuries may keep an injured party in bed or out of work for a time, but eventually the wounds are healed and the injured party can resume a relatively normal life. However, some injuries are so severe that they are life-threatening and often life-altering in scope.

Catastrophic injuries may include the following:

  • Partial or total physical disability
  • Paralysis or neurologic damage
  • Loss of limb
  • Brain trauma or mental impairment
  • Severe burns
