What is a Catastrophic Injury?

To people who suffer injuries in violent accidents, every injury feels catastrophic, which is fair. However, there are legal definitions that outline what type of injury is catastrophic and what is not. In federal law, an injury is “catastrophic” if it “permanently prevents [you] from performing any gainful work.” This definition is important because it can influence the value of a catastrophic injury claim you file in Mississippi or elsewhere.

Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

What is an injury that prevents you from performing gainful work? Arguably, the type of work you do in your career will change that definition. But there are some injuries that are considered catastrophic in nearly any circumstance.

Common examples of catastrophic injuries are:

  • Amputations
  • Blindness and deafness
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Total or partial paralysis
  • Chronic illnesses
  • Permanent organ damage

By some other definitions, a catastrophic injury is also any injury that immediately threatens the injured person’s life or immediately changes their life forever. Under this broader definition, more types of injuries can be argued as “catastrophic,” such as severe burns that cause permanent and visible disfigurement without inhibiting the injured person’s ability to work. Our Tupelo catastrophic injury attorneys will try to find any way possible to fairly increase the value of your injury claim, which could include arguing for a better definition of “catastrophic” to apply to your case.

Catastrophic Injuries Cause Extreme Financial Harm

Catastrophic injury claims are not to be taken lightly. You should expect extreme resistance from the responding insurance company because they know that they could owe you a significant amount of compensation. Generally, the worse someone’s injury is, the more expensive it is to treat and the greater compensation they are owed through a claim. This is because catastrophic injuries cause permanent consequences that require lifelong attention.

The cost of future medical care alone can easily range into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. When factoring in lost wages and chronic pain, demanding at least one million dollars in compensation could be justified. Insurance caps could limit the recovery amount you can demand or secure through a claim or lawsuit, though. We will work carefully to make certain your case’s value is fairly represented, and we will tell you if there will be insurance caps that could limit the outcome so you aren’t blindsided by it later.
