When Is An Injury Catastrophic?
The Ellis Firm, APLC, seeks compensation for all serious injuries. However, we specialize in catastrophic injury cases.
A catastrophic injury can be to any part of the body. What distinguishes it from other injuries is that it alters the course of the individual’s life. Catastrophic injuries are permanently disabling and call for far greater resources over the course of the individual’s life than other injuries.
When is an injury catastrophic? Catastrophic conditions include:
- Paralysis and other significant spinal cord damage
- Injury to the brain and head
- Crushing and severe bone damage
- Loss of vision, speech or hearing
- Severe burns and disfigurement
- Lung damage
