Handling Claims for Life-Changing Injuries
An injury can be considered catastrophic if it creates a permanent change to the health or life of the person who suffers it. When a catastrophic injury occurs, it can make for a complicated and hard-fought civil injury case. Defendants and insurance companies don't want to be liable for causing such a serious injury, so they will often deny liability as much as possible.

How are Catastrophic Injury Claims Different from Others?
Technically, a catastrophic injury claim is no different than any other personal injury claim. The processes that go into the case remain the same, such as investigating the injury, calculating damages, filing a claim, negotiating for a settlement, and if needed, litigating in court.
The biggest differences in a catastrophic injury claim include:
- The injuries in question are more likely to be life-changing than the average injury claim.
- The compensation owed to the plaintiff is likely to be more than the average injury claim.
- The opposition is more likely to put up a fight with so much compensation on the line.
