An injury is classified as “catastrophic” when it causes so much damage that it changes that individual’s life—possibly forever.  You may not be able to find gainful employment after the impact of such an injury.  While money will never make up for the tragic circumstances you or a family member are experiencing, it is crucial for your future that you pursue a catastrophic injury claim immediately.

What Kinds of Workplace Injuries are Often Catastrophic?

Catastrophic injuries while on the job often involve brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burns, loss of limb(s), and crushed or broken bones, to name a few.  These are commonly the result of:

  • Being hit by a forklift
  • Strikes by falling objects
  • Being hit by a dump truck, freight truck or other vehicle
  • Electrocution
  • Burns from dangerous chemicals
  • Falls from rafters, scaffolding, ladders, roofs, or other high places
  • Amputations or lacerations by heavy machinery or equipment without proper guarding

Overview of What You Can Claim for a Catastrophic Injury

A worker who has suffered a catastrophic injury has the right to seek substantial compensation to cover damages caused by another’s negligence.  An attorney with us works to document every aspect of the case and gather evidence to show that all the expenses and trauma you are experiencing are, in fact, the result of your work injury.  The next step is navigating the claim process to ensure that you receive all the compensation you need so you and your family can move on with life as best as you can as you heal and adapt.  You are a valued worker and member of the community and should be justly compensated.

Depending on the options available and negligent parties, your claim may include:  

  1. Economic Damages:  Current and future medical expenses, lost wages, lost future earnings due to the injury’s impact on your ability to work
  2. Non-economic Damages:  Pain, suffering, impairment, and emotional trauma
