There are many kinds of serious, life-threatening injuries that can upend your life in the blink of an eye. To reach the legal classification of a catastrophic injury, however, the injury must stop you from earning a living, which is obviously an extremely serious situation. If someone else’s negligence leaves you with a catastrophic injury, you need the professional legal counsel of an experienced personal injury attorney in your corner.REQUEST A FREE CONSULTATION
In the State of California, a catastrophic injury refers to an injury that permanently prevents someone from engaging in any gainful work. The kinds of injuries that tend to qualify as catastrophic injuries and that preclude one from returning to work include:
Any one of these injuries can quickly derail your life and leave you facing an extremely difficult path forward.

Your catastrophic injury can require a lifetime of care, and these injuries often lead to serious secondary health concerns. In other words, it’s difficult to calculate exactly how costly a catastrophic injury will end up being in terms of medical expenses.
Catastrophic injuries are often caused by negligence-based accidents, including:
Damages beyond Medical Expenses
While the medical costs associated with your catastrophic injury are likely to be extremely high, this isn’t the end of the story. Consider all of the following additional damages you could face:
Ultimately, catastrophic injuries take one’s losses to a whole new level that must be carefully addressed in order to help ensure that your best interests are served.
Punitive damages sometimes play a role in catastrophic injury cases. Punitive damages are levied when the at-fault party’s actions are deemed to have been either intentionally harmful or extremely reckless and can include malice or fraud. Punitive damages are intended to punish the at-fault party – rather than as compensation for your damages. Punitive damages are in addition to compensatory damages, and they are based on the egregiousness of the at-fault party’s actions.
