What Should You Know About Catastrophic Injury Cases?
Catastrophic injuries typically involve a long recovery period and individuals who suffer from this type of injury have to undergo multiple surgical procedures and possibly a lifetime of medications. If you or a family member has suffered a serious injury in an accident, you can sue the guilty party to obtain compensation for your injuries and the amount of compensation will depend on the extent and type of injuries.
Individuals can suffer from many different types of catastrophic injuries. These injuries can be suffered in a serious car, truck, or motorcycle accident or other traumatic incident. The resulting injuries can be life changing:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)
- Paraplegia and Quadriplegia
Drivers and pedestrians are often common victims of catastrophic injuries. These injuries lead to various serious problems for the victims and victims may have to undergo surgeries or rehabilitation that will result in increased medical expenses. Moreover, catastrophic injuries from car accidents and other incidents may result in extended loss of income due to days missed at work. It may also lead to reduced quality of life due to difficulties in performing daily tasks.
How Loss & Compensation Is Calculated in a Catastrophic Injury Case?
The compensatory damages for a catastrophic injury depend on different factors. Some of the factors that affect the compensation amount include the following:
- Loss of wages
- Medical care expenses
- Physical pain and suffering
- Emotional problem
- Loss of consortium
- Long-term life plan
Apart from the above factors, the court will find out whether the defendant acted with deliberate and “actual malice”. The compensation for deliberate intent to injure can be higher when compared to injury caused by neglect or reckless actions. The jury may award punitive damages in order to punish the defendant for the deliberate act resulting in an injury.
