WHAT IS A CATASTROPHIC INJURY?
A catastrophic injury is a serious injury that results in the victim having permanent damage. Some injuries that are often considered to be catastrophic include:
- Quadriplegia, paraplegia, paralysis
- Broken bones, including back, skull, legs and hips
- Spinal cord injury
- Internal organ damage
- Burn injury
- Traumatic brain injury, concussion
- Disfiguration and scars
- Permanent disability
Individuals who sustain these types of life-changing injuries often have limited mobility or cognitive limitations, which may last for months or even years. These injuries can result in extensive medical and rehabilitation expenses and substantial loss of earnings, including financial losses related to the injured person’s future ability to earn money. In many cases, the injured person is not the only one incurring financial loss as caring for an injured loved one often requires working spouses, partners or other family members to miss substantial time from their own jobs as they devote significant time to caring for the injured person.
HOW DO YOU PROVE A CATASTROPHIC INJURY CLAIM?
Proving a catastrophic injury claim can be complex for many reasons. It involves:
- Determining fault for the catastrophic injury
- Conducting a thorough investigation
- Collecting the necessary evidence
- Building a strong case
Our skilled catastrophic injury lawyers with Elite Litigation Group handle these types of cases day-in and day-out and know how to make your claim a success. We will handle everything on your behalf, including collecting witness statements, site investigations, and taking your case to court to ensure you get the full value for your claim.
WHAT UNIQUE NEEDS MUST BE CONSIDERED IN A CATASTROPHIC INJURY CASE?
Catastrophic injury cases involve much more than a simple personal injury claim. Whether you’ve been in a car accident, truck accident, or other serious accident, you must factor in the unique needs and life care planning that come with these types of severe injuries, including:
- Future medical expenses
- Rehabilitation services (physical, occupational, speech, vocational therapies)
- Modifications for home accessibility
- Modifications for work and transportation
- Assistive or prosthetic devices
- Full-time, long-term care
Traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, medical malpractice injuries, and other catastrophic injuries are debilitating and affect a victim’s life forever. These long-term care needs must be considered when making a claim for compensation. Elite Litigation Group ensures victims and their families can start again with the compensation they need and deserve.
WHAT DAMAGES ARE RECOVERABLE IN A CATASTROPHIC INJURY LAWSUIT?
It is important to note that every case is different and the damages available in each case can vary. However, we understand that you may have questions and we can help you find the answers. As a plaintiff in Colorado, you may be eligible to recover economic and non-economic damages:
- Retail value of past medical bills
- Retail value of future medical expenses
- Retail value of Rehabilitation costs
- Medical equipment
- Home modification / accommodation costs
- Pre-tax value of past wage loss
- Pre-tax value of future lost wages
