Syracuse Catastrophic Injury Lawyers

Have you or a loved one suffered a catastrophic injury?

A catastrophic injury is one of the most traumatic things that can happen to you or a loved one. It is an injury that results in life-altering conditions, such as severe burns, brain damage, blindness, or paralysis.

Such injuries permanently prevent you from working or enjoying your life. You may not be able to travel, partake in hobbies, or enjoy family time. And the combination of physical and emotional traumas can result in years of anxiety and depression.

Even worse, catastrophic injuries will often affect the victim’s entire family. The inability to work — combined with the possible need for lifelong medical care — makes a catastrophic injury one of the worse things that can happen to you and your family.

What are some examples of catastrophic injuries?

  • Severe burns often result in many complications and awful effects like disfigurement, extreme pain, persistent infections, limb loss, and permanent disability.
  • Suffering traumatic brain damage can cause emotional difficulties, speech and language problems, and cognitive defects for the rest of your life.
  • A spinal cord injury can result in either complete or partial paralysis. But it can also cause respiratory and circulatory problems, spasms or abnormal reflexes, loss of bowel and bladder control, and chronic pain.
  • When someone loses a limb as a result of an accident, they can suffer debilitating physical and emotional pain. It is a highly challenging scenario for them and their loved ones.

What compensation can victims of catastrophic injuries get?

The effects of a catastrophic injury span many years and worsen the lives of entire families. Victims of a catastrophic injury need compensation that is in proportion to their suffering.

  • Loss of income
  • Property damage
  • Expenses
  • Pain
  • Suffering
  • Loss of life enjoyment
  • Permanent disability
  • Mental anguish

And this list only covers a fraction of all the possibilities. The stakes are so much higher in a catastrophic injury case. Every detail is significant. The smallest omission or mistake can have a massive effect on the victim and their family’s lives going forward.
