Severe burns, dismemberment, and serious injuries to the brain or spinal cord can change the victim’s life forever. These are catastrophic injuries. They devastate a victim’s loved ones, too. Pain, reduced ability to enjoy everyday activities, and lost wages are among the long-term damages. So are lost opportunities for the victim and family members. The challenges are physical, emotional, and also financial.
Catastrophic injuries are often permanent and require ongoing and costly medical care. The costs are often beyond the means of victims and families. Many families don’t have health insurance or enough money to cover all the needed care. Even with health insurance, there may be caps on the coverage amounts.

FAULT AND LIABILITY
The first step in recovering damages is establishing fault. This, however, can be a complex process. The financial stakes may be very large. Defendants (corporations, insurance companies, and individuals) forcefully defend themselves. In some cases, moreover, there are multiple parties at fault. The defendant’s lawyers will use every possible tactic to dodge liability. In fact, they’ll often try to show the victim was at fault. Once we establish liability, the next step is putting a dollar value on the victim’s injuries. This, too, has special features in these cases.
LONG-TERM IMPACTS OF CATASTROPHIC INJURIES
This class of injury often has long-term or life-long impact. Indeed, there may be no end to the expenses for care. Hence, assessing these future expenses is crucial. Identifying and accounting for future costs, though, can be highly technical. It often requires expert analysis by professionals in various fields.
