What Constitutes a Catastrophic Injury?

Car accidents often leave victims with catastrophic injuries, which can forever alter their long-term health and mobility. Not only do catastrophic injury victims often face debilitating physical impairments, they also frequently suffer from severe psychological trauma. Get the facts on what constitutes a catastrophic injury and what you can do if you have been involved in a catastrophic car accident.

What is Considered a Catastrophic Injury?

Catastrophic injuries take many forms, but injuries are typically classified as “catastrophic” when they significantly impact a person’s health, mobility, and independence. At Morici, Longo & Associates, we assist clients obtain financial compensation from negligent parties and insurers for catastrophic injuries including but not limited to the following:

  • Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, concussions, blindness, and other permanent injuries or disabilities

  • Spinal injuries resulting in the loss of motor skills, nerve damage, and paralysis

  • Amputation injury involving the severing of digits or limbs

  • Scarring and disfigurement

  • Broken bones and lacerations

  • Burns

  • Wrongful death

Unfortunately, catastrophic injuries are often so serious that they affect a person’s ability to care for themselves. Many catastrophic injury victims cannot return to work or earn an income, and require long-term assistive care or devices.

If you have suffered a catastrophic injury in an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, do not suffer in silence. Our personal injury attorneys at Morici, Longo & Associates can help you recover the compensation you deserve to pay for medical expenses and lost wages.
