What Are Catastrophic Injuries?

A catastrophic injury is one that is severe enough to impact the victim drastically or permanently. They happen the most often in serious accidents, such as high-speed car crashes, explosions or accidental shootings. If an injury is life-altering, it is catastrophic. Some examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Multiple bone fractures
  • Limb amputations
  • Loss of hearing, sight or another sense
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Severe burns
  • Significant scarring or permanent disfigurement

Catastrophic injuries are often extremely painful for victims. They can also cause major emotional distress, depression, inconvenience and lost quality of life. Additionally, the lifetime costs associated with these injuries are staggeringly high.  Catastrophic injuries usually result in significant bills for medical treatment, rehabilitation and lifelong medical care.

What Are Your Rights as Someone With a Catastrophic Injury in Danbury, CT?

Unfortunately, dozens, if not hundreds of preventable accidents cause serious and catastrophic injuries in Danbury each year. These accidents include car crashes, work accidents, falls and acts of violence. But who is legally responsible for the resultant injuries?  In catastrophic injury cases, the legal theory of negligence plays a central role in establishing liability.  Essentially, to be negligent, a person must:

  1. Owe a duty of care to the injured person. A simple example of this is a driver’s responsibility to drive safely and to keep other drivers safe..
  2. The person breached that duty through action or inaction. To keep our example going, if a driver drives drunk or runs a stop sign.
  3. The breach caused the accident. It’s not enough that a person breaches the duty.  It must be shown that the accident was a result of that action.
  4. The accident caused actual harm.

Holding someone responsible for your catastrophic injury allows you to recover compensation for your past and future losses. Unfortunately, it isn’t always easy to get an insurance company to offer what your case is truly worth. Working with an attorney can improve your chances of success. A lawyer can negotiate with an insurance company on your behalf to obtain fair compensation. Our lawyers can go into more detail about your rights and options during a free consultation in Danbury today.
