Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

Negligence or wrongdoing may cause catastrophic injuries. Accidents do happen, but they often have a specific cause that can be traced back to an act of recklessness or misconduct. This means that a specific person or company may be held legally responsible for the effects of the accident or other incident that caused catastrophic harm to another person.

Regardless of the circumstances surrounding your injuries and who caused them, you may be entitled to monetary damages for medical bills, ongoing treatment, physical therapy, medication, assistive devices, in-home care, lost earnings, loss of future earnings, emotional trauma, and more.
