Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries are classified as life-threatening injuries that
often result in disfigurement or permanent disability. Those who sustain
these types of injuries have a very small chance of ever fully recovering.
Victims commonly suffer expensive medical costs, loss of the ability to
work, and loss of the enjoyment of life.
Catastrophic injuries can be caused by several types of accidents, including:
- Pedestrian accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycling accidents
- Boating accidents
- Car accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Work-related accidents
If you or a loved one have sustained a catastrophic injury from any of
these types of accidents, you deserve to be compensated for your damages.
It is crucial to speak to a lawyer as soon as possible to make sure all
the necessary steps are taken to secure maximum compensation.
Can a Claim Still Be Pursued if a Catastrophic Injury Victim Dies?
If you have a loved one who survived an accident and filed a catastrophic
injury claim, but later died from their injuries, the claim will not continue.
Rather, the personal injury claim can be converted into a wrongful death
claim. In this case, the deceased person’s family members would
file a lawsuit to recover compensation. The kinds of damages recoverable
in this type of case include loss of future earnings, loss of benefits,
funeral and burial costs, mental anguish, and loss of companionship.
