What is a Catastrophic Injury? Injured patient with a doctor

A catastrophic injury is legally defined by 42 U.S.C. § 3796b as an injury "the direct and proximate consequences of which permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work." In other words, if you have been injured due to negligence and the results of your injuries are permanent or debilitating, you may have grounds for a personal injury claim.

Common Types of Catastrophic Injuries

Most catastrophic injuries result from someone else’s wrongdoing or negligence. These accidents can take many forms, including car accidents, construction site accidents, slip and falls, dog bites, or any other number of circumstances.

Proving a Catastrophic Injury Claim

Because North Carolina personal injury law is complex, you should seek the legal representation of a skilled attorney rather than representing yourself after an accident resulting in catastrophic injury. Attempting to gain maximum compensation from an insurance company for your injuries and losses is a lengthy, complicated process, and it helps to have an advocate on your side to make sure you don’t accept a lowball offer.

To prove your catastrophic injury claim, make sure you save all relevant documentation related to your accident. Combining all of these documents, along with a thorough investigation of your case, helps prove your injuries and gives you the best chance of gaining the compensation you deserve.

Your personal injury lawyer will help you compile the following documents:

  • Accident reports
  • Police reports
  • Witness statements
  • Medical bills and records
  • Quotes for car repairs

Compensation for Catastrophic Injury Victims

Victims of catastrophic injuries lose the ability to perform gainful employment and, at the same time, medical bills start piling up fast. If you or a loved one has been injured in a serious accident, you have the right to seek justice against the person who caused it. While recovering financial compensation will not undo the physical and emotional harm you have suffered, it can relieve the burden of extremely high, lifelong medical bills. You may also be able to seek compensation for required physical rehabilitation, lost and future wages, loss of consortium, and more.
