What Are Catastrophic Injuries?
These injuries are especially serious personal injuries that may affect the brain, the spine, or a body part’s functionality. The effects can be permanent in many cases. Catastrophic injuries can be common in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, dog bite incidents, and other serious injury incidents.
Some of the common kinds of catastrophic injuries are:
- Serious tissue injuries: Injuries affecting tissues can be catastrophic if they cause serious damage to underlying tissue. For example, a third-degree burn can cause serious tissue damage.
- Internal injuries: These injuries can affect the organs, which can be fatal. Generally, internal injuries are caused by trauma to the abdomen.
- Back injuries: Spinal injuries can permanently affect a victim’s movement and mobility. The effect can be so serious that the victim suffers permanent paralysis.
- Head injuries: These can affect a person’s brain, causing mental, behavioral, and physical changes, such as impairment or disability. Even a concussion can be serious.
- Severe limb and appendage injuries: Injuries to limbs and appendages can cause amputation. The victim may suffer a lower quality of life as a result.

What Damages Can You Claim in a Lawrenceville Catastrophic Injury Case?
After a catastrophic accident, a victim may have injuries affecting their body, mind, and emotions. Some of these injuries may last a long time and lead to serious financial costs. These injuries and costs can be claimed through a personal injury claim or lawsuit against the responsible party.
The damages you can claim may include:
- Financial costs, like the costs of emergency medical care, continual healthcare, surgeries, a wheelchair, the repair of your vehicle, your inability to earn income, and/or your lost income-earning potential
- Emotional damages, such as the inability to enjoy certain activities anymore and/or depression
- Mental damages, such as anxiety and/or mental anguish
- Physical damages, like physical pain and suffering, impairment, disability, loss of consortium, and/or disfigurement
In some catastrophic injury cases, the at-fault party was extremely negligent or even malicious. In your case, the judge may apply punitive damages to punish the at-fault party and discourage them from acting in such a manner in the future.
Wrongful Death Damages
You can claim these damages if you suffered the loss of a loved one from their injuries. Wrongful death damages can be:
- Financial costs, such as the costs of a funeral, a burial/cremation, emergency medical treatment, and/or the lost income for the family
- Emotional damages, such as depression
- Mental damages, such as mental anguish
- Physical damages, like the physical pain the deceased loved one may have experienced
- Additional damages, such as the loss of parental and spousal support and the loss of consortium

What Can a Lawrenceville Catastrophic Injury Lawyer Do for Me?
The only things that should be on your mind right now are your recovery and your family. You shouldn’t have to think about your case or your finances. One of our firm’s lawyers can help resolve these other matters for you.
So you can focus on what really matters, your catastrophic injury lawyer will:
- Work for you on a contingency-fee basis: You won’t pay your lawyer any fees for their services until after your case resolves and unless your case resolves with a settlement or court verdict. This should make your legal services easily affordable.
- Identify liable parties: A driver, a driver’s employer, a dog owner, or another party may be liable for your damages. Your lawyer will identify the liable party (or parties) for your case.
- Build your case: Your lawyer will also identify the evidence against the other party and build your case around this evidence. Such evidence could be vehicle dash camera footage of the incident or a written statement from a witness.
- Valuate your damages: Your lawyer can give monetary value to your non-financial damages, which will help the insurer understand the overall value of your case.
- File your claim or lawsuit: Your lawyer will make sure the proper filing procedure is followed.
- Prove the other party’s liability: This requires establishing the party’s negligence, which can be a complicated process.
- Negotiate your settlement on your behalf: Negotiations can be complicated too, but your lawyer will be prepared to argue your case and resolve it fairly.
- Take your case to court: If negotiations fail, your lawyer won’t hesitate to take your case to a judge and fight for a fair court verdict.
