Moses brings over 22 years of prosecutorial and trial experience, and he takes a personalized approach to each client’s case as he prioritizes their well-being throughout the legal process.

What Constitutes a Catastrophic Injury?

Catastrophic injury is legally defined as an injury with direct consequences that permanently prevents an individual from performing any gainful work. In other words, a catastrophic injury is an injury that leaves the victim with serious, permanent damage. These injuries often take the form of severe injury to the spine, spinal cord, brain, skull, or spinal fractures.

Some common causes of catastrophic include:

  • Car and Truck Accidents
  • Workplace Accidents
  • Bicycle Accidents
  • Sport and Recreational Activities
  • Construction Accidents
  • Medical Mistakes

Examples of Catastrophic Injury

There are three categories of catastrophic injury:

  • Physical
  • Spinal Cord
  • Cognitive

Physical injuries could be amputation, burn injuries, severe fractures, organ damage, and other tissue or orthopedic function damage. These injuries can cause serious infections, limb loss, disfigurement, and permanent disability depending on the situation.

Spinal cord injuries exclusively affect the spinal cord, creating permanent mobility issues for survivors. This could look like partial or complete paralysis, respiratory and circulatory problems, exaggerated reflexes and spasms, chronic pain, or loss of bowel and bladder control.

Perhaps the most emotionally and financially costly of catastrophic injuries are cognitive injuries. Cognitive injuries arise from brain damage that can result in life-long cognitive dysfunction, abnormal speech and language, emotional difficulties, and limited ability to move their arms and legs.

Compensation for Damages

As a result of your injury, you may have to undergo costly surgeries or go through rehabilitation, or you may permanently require a medical device or medication. In your personal injury lawsuit, you can seek compensation for these medical expenses, as well as for lost wages if the injury puts you out of work. Depending on your situation, you may also be entitled to compensation for emotional damage that you and your loved ones suffered from the accident.

Some further examples of the costs you are entitled to recovering in your catastrophic injury case include:

  • Emergency medical expenses
  • Continuing medical care
  • Visiting nursing care
  • Physical and occupational therapy
  • Counseling
  • Costs for retro-fitting your home for disability accommodation
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Disfigurement
