Catastrophic Injuries – Obtain an Award that Reflects the Full Spectrum of Damages

February 16, 2024 Scura Law Firm Personal Injury


Did your accident give you an injury that permanently affects your ability to work or enjoy life? You may be suffering from a catastrophic injury – a type of injury for which you may be able to recover a substantial award

Catastrophic injuries are those injuries that result in permanent, life-altering consequences. They may prevent an individual from doing the work they had previously been able to perform or enjoy life the way he or she used to prior to the accident.

These injuries not only have a lasting effect on an individual’s ability to work and enjoy life, but they also generally involve on-going medical treatment and rehabilitation. With mounting medical expenses, loss of income, and the suffering from an injury, putting together a strong case to obtain maximum compensation becomes of chief importance.

Catastrophic injuries can result from a car accident, medical malpractice, construction site incidents, and various other events that cause permanent disabilities and long-term effects. Some common catastrophic injuries include spinal cord injuries, neurological damage, burns, amputations, organ damage, and paralysis. Moreover, the aftermath is not just physical — it's financial and emotional, impacting your entire family.

Choosing the Right Attorney

Catastrophic injuries often result in long-term loss of income, exorbitant medical bills, reduced enjoyment in previously beloved activities, and chronic pain. Not only does the injury affect the individual involved, but affects the household at large. With so much on the line, choosing the right attorney becomes crucial, as your chosen attorney is tasked with demonstrating the extent of your injuries. To achieve maximum compensation, your attorney must display the full extent of your injuries, covering all the different components of your damages. Awards can cover everything from medical expenses, to lost income, to property damage, to pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish, permanent disability, disfigurement, loss of consortium, to miscellaneous out of pocket costs. At Scura, the attorneys are ready to fight tooth and nail for your case, ensuring no aspect of damages goes unaccounted for, and that you receive the maximum award.

Lastly, choosing the right attorney for catastrophic injuries means choosing attorneys with extensive trial experience. While your case may settle way ahead of trial, the attorney with an edge in terms of trial experience has more leverage in negotiating your settlement.

If you're facing the overwhelming challenges of a catastrophic injury, it may be time to talk to someone who can help. At Scura, we offer a free consultation to explore your options and are ready to fight to achieve maximum compensation for your injuries.
