What Injuries Are Considered Catastrophic?

Section 3796b of the U.S. Code’s Title 42 states that any injury is considered catastrophic if it permanently prevents someone from doing work. The most common catastrophic injuries are those that affect the brain and spine of the victim. If the injury is that serious, the victim may lose bodily function. Some catastrophic injuries include:

What Injuries Are Considered Catastrophic?
Catastrophic Injuries Can Cause Long-Lasting Complications

Catastrophic Injuries Can Cause Long-Lasting Complications

Catastrophic injuries cause permanent damage to the victim and their living conditions. Our catastrophic injury lawyers in Los Angeles observed that serious injuries often cause certain complications that affect their overall quality of life, which include the following:

  • Physical disability. Depending on the extent of the injuries, a person might be left permanently disabled. An accident can lead to paralysis or loss of a limb, leaving visible damage to the victim.
  • Mental incapacity. Victims who sustained severe injuries to their brains may suffer mental disability, which can cause changes in their speech, movements, and behavior.
  • Reduced quality of life. In a study done in 2016, victims of catastrophic injuries sustained in a motor vehicle crash showed elevated psychological distress. The combined changes in the victim’s physical and mental well-being can alter the way they live their life, or worse, they may feel unable to continue living an ordinary life.
  • Employment problems. The catastrophic nature of the injuries sustained by the victims could force them to either work less or quit their jobs.
  • Financial struggles. Victims face huge expenses for their medication and therapy alone. The increase in financial burden is what our lawyers can alleviate for you by obtaining maximum compensation.

Reasons and Liability for Catastrophic Injuries

California law follows the rules of comparative negligence in handling personal injury claims. It states that multiple parties may share fault for an accident, even if it is caused by the negligence of an individual. There are cases where multiple parties share liability, such as the following:

 

However, California law also allows opposing parties to place liability on the victim. Regardless, our Los Angeles catastrophic injury lawyers will protect your rights once the at-fault parties attempt to place the blame on you.

Professional Investigators For Your Catastrophic Injury Cases

Our catastrophic injury attorneys in Los Angeles have connections with trustworthy investigators who will assist us with fortifying your case. These professionals will investigate your accident further and provide evidence that will help us secure your claim. In various cases, they have provided the following services:

Witness statements

Cases involving catastrophic injuries can be difficult to win without accounts from witnesses. However, it won’t be easy to extract information from them. Our investigators have the skills necessary to gain the information we need from witnesses that are relevant to the victim’s version of events. 

Site investigations

Your personal injury claim can be strengthened by the evidence obtained by our professionals, regardless of whether it involved a construction site accident, truck accident, or faulty product.

Truck activity recording devices

If a negligent truck driver injures you, our investigators will examine paper logs, black boxes, or congressionally mandated electronic logging devices to find any evidence to back up your claim. 

Equipment maintenance records

If you sustain injuries from a faulty product, our investigators will obtain maintenance logs to prove the manufacturers’ liability for your catastrophic injury. 

Acquiring defective products for product liability claims

To further strengthen your case, our professionals can even retrieve defective products from the manufacturer to prove their negligence that led to your injuries.
