Catastrophic Injury

Trumbull accidents can range in severity. In many cases, injuries resulting from accidents will be minor. They may require a few doctor’s visits, physical therapy, or even minor surgery, but ultimately, a person has the ability to recover fully from their injury. However, this is not always the case. Some injuries are so severe that they significantly interfere with a person’s life. In some cases, the injuries may be permanent and may have lasting effects. In these situations, a person might sustain what is considered a “catastrophic injury” under the law. When a catastrophic injury occurs, the victim may deal with significant physical, emotional, and financial burden. You can learn more about catastrophic injury and how to get compensation on this page.

Trumbull Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries can have a significant negative impact on a victim and their family, who oftentimes have to become caregivers. Here are a few ways in which catastrophic injuries can impact a person:

  • Loss of income while a person is recovering from their injury.
  • Inability to return to work and perform the same job that they used to, leading to loss of future income.
  • Inability to improve in their job and take on new challenges, leading to loss of future income.
  • Significant medical bills for things like hospital stays, surgeries, medications, treatments, seeing specialty doctors, using special equipment such as a wheelchair, etc.
  • Loss of enjoyment in life due to permanent disability.
  • Trauma, PTSD, emotional pain and suffering, depression, and other mental health issues that may require medication or the assistance of a therapist.
  • Burden for loved ones who need to become caregivers and help with day-to-day tasks.
  • Money spent to remodel a house in order to comply with new physical limitations (moving to a single floor home or apartment, installing ramps, installing elevators, lowering countertops, etc.).

As you can see, the consequences of a catastrophic injury can be serious and have a significant impact on a person’s life. The above issues should be compensated for if someone else was responsible for the accident causing the injuries.

A few common forms of catastrophic injury that a person might experience include:

  • Severe burns.
  • Organ damage or other internal damage such as infection or bleeding.
  • Neurological damage or traumatic brain injuries.
  • Spinal cord injuries that could cause paralysis or other serious limitations.
  • Severe damage to a limb requiring amputation.
  • Wrongful death, which can have a significant impact on loved ones.
