Catastrophic Injuries

Mississippi Catastrophic Injury Attorneys

Securing Your Future in Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas

To some, the term “catastrophic injury” sounds like a misnomer. Aren’t all injuries and accidents catastrophic? If you’re going by the dictionary definition, that may be true, but legally, catastrophic injury means something entirely different.

According to United States Code Title 34 §10284:

’catastrophic injury’ means an injury, the direct and proximate consequences of which permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work.”

This means, in a legal sense, any injury that leaves you unable to work is considered catastrophic.

Under federal law, if you have been affected by a catastrophic injury, you may also be entitled to compensation. Mama Justice - MW Law Firm can help you get it.
