Catastrophic Injury

What is a Catastrophic Injury?

Catastrophic injuries are considered to be injuries that are life altering in nature.  Injuries this severe often involve damage to the spinal column, injury to the brain or skull, severe burns or any other form of injury that will have a significant impact on a person for the rest of their life such as brain damage or amputation or other injuries. When defining a catastrophic injury consideration is given to ongoing medical and care needs, impaired mobility or diminished cognitive function.

What can cause a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury can be sustained at any age and have a wide range of causes including (but not limited to); Birth injuries, Road Traffic Injuries, Clinical / Medical Negligence, Accidents at work, Sports Injuries or being the victim of a crime. The severity of the injury may not be evident immediately after the incident, but perhaps during the period in which you should be seeing a recovery, it then becomes apparent the injury is more severe than originally thought. 

Compensation for a Catastrophic Injury 

We understand that no amount of money can undo the trauma or injury. Of course, it cannot. However, financial compensation can go some way to ensure that lives can be made easier knowing that care needs (now and in the future) are taken care of along with ensuring lessons are learnt and perhaps a repeat of the circumstances can be avoided. A catastrophically injured person requires significant care and assistance which they would not have required had the injury not been sustained whether through negligence or incident. Compensation can help with these costs, ensuring that the person receives the best care and aids available to make life as easy as possible for them and their loved ones.
