Catastrophic injuries are usually defined as an injury that is life-threatening or causes permanent impairment or disability. Examples of catastrophic injuries include, but are not limited to:
In most cases, catastrophic injuries require emergency medical attention immediately. Most individuals are transported directly to the hospital by ambulance or airlift. Doctors must work quickly to diagnose and treat the injuries to prevent further harm or death.
A catastrophic injury often results in substantial financial losses and expenses. The cost of medical care, personal care and the loss of income can really add up to the total economic losses.
Most individuals require months of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other therapies to learn how to live with their disability or impairment. The family may need to make adjustments to their home and vehicles to accommodate the person’s needs, which can also be costly.
In addition to the economic damages incurred because of a catastrophic injury, victims may experience chronic pain, depression, anxiety, mental anguish, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Many people experience a decrease in their quality of life or their enjoyment of life because of the injury. Many people who suffer catastrophic injuries are in counseling and therapy for months or years to learn how to cope with the changes caused by the injury and impairment. These non-economic (pain & suffering) damages must also be compensated.
A comprehensive investigation must be conducted to identify each party that might be liable for your damages. Likewise, we need to identify all insurance policies and other sources of compensation that could be available for a catastrophic injury claim. By identifying each party and source of compensation, our Denver catastrophic injury attorneys increase your chances of receiving maximum compensation for your damages.
Catastrophic injury cases often involve multiple parties, large insurance companies, massive corporations, and even government entities. The parties may try to avoid liability by shifting the blame for the accident to each other or even the victim. You need a skilled personal injury attorney on your side.
