What Is a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury is one that typically leaves the injured party permanently unable to work. Moreover, such a life changing event may require special future rehabilitation, care, and lodging.  We work with experts in the medical field and specially trained life care planners to approximate what the future needs for an injured party will be, as well as the cost of those needs.

In order to recover, the injury must be directly caused by the wrongful action or inaction of a third-party.  All personal injury cases are civil cases; they do not assign criminal responsibility for the injury. Whether or not criminal charges are filed against those responsible does not affect your ability to bring a claim in civil court for your spinal cord injury.  It is burden in a civil case to prove that it was more likely than not that the wrongdoer caused your injuries.
