Catastrophic injuries, legally speaking, are any injury that keeps an individual from working or being gainfully employed long-term or permanently. Another definition is any injury that is life-altering or creates a permanent disability, such as paralysis. Unlike other areas of personal injury law, catastrophic injury law has to do with the effects of an accident rather than the circumstances. Our Erie catastrophic injury lawyer has extensive experience with cases involving injuries of this nature.
Due to the nature of this area of personal injury practice, all types of accidents can result in a catastrophic injury claim. Car accidents, boating accidents, maritime injuries, truck accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, and any other area of personal injury can cause a catastrophic injury. The most common type of catastrophic injury is a spinal cord injury.
The injuries that result from these accidents can include:
In the worst cases, the injuries from a catastrophic accident can result in wrongful death.
