What is a "catastrophic injury?"

A catastrophic injury refers to a severe injury to the spine, spinal cord, or brain.

According to the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research, catastrophic injuries are associated with three outcomes:

  1. Injuries that cause permanent severe functional disability

  2. Injuries that cause severe head or neck trauma with no permanent disability

  3. Fatality, which may occur directly or indirectly

Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries, which cause permanent functional disability commonly arise in personal injury claims. Due to their nature and severity, such injuries typically incur extensive damages in the form of medical bills, surgery costs, hospital stays, prosthetics, loss of wages, rehabilitative therapy, pain and suffering, and sometimes even damages for emotional or psychological harm.

Common examples of catastrophic injuries:

“Got into a bicycle vs car mishap resulting in a few nights in the ICU thus hospital bills were mounting in the low 6 figures. Shopped around for legal guidance which led me to attorney and fellow cyclist Richard Duquette who came highly recommended in the San Diego cycling community. The cohesive team worked hard on my behalf and Duquette's generational experience helped navigate and apply pressure to the appropriate parties when necessary. Was able to get the maximum recovery so I could recover without the added stress of paying hospital bills over the next decade. Would highly recommend.”
