A catastrophic injury is often defined as an injury that threatens the victim’s life or changes their life forever due to a permanent disability. In some legal contexts, a catastrophic injury can also be defined as an injury that permanently limits the victim’s ability to hold gainful employment. The definitions of a catastrophic injury are important for your claim. If your injury is serious but not necessarily catastrophic, then the defense will jump on the chance to argue that your injury is exaggerated, or your damages are unjustified.
Our team of attorneys can work with medical and financial experts when building your case. In doing so, we can get a full understanding of how your health, finances, and well-being have changed because of your injury. This step will make it more difficult for the defense to argue that your injury is not catastrophic.

The past and future damages that can add to the value of your catastrophic injury claim include:
