What Is a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury refers to a severe injury that results in permanent, life-altering consequences, such as paralysis, the loss of a body function, or diminished cognitive capacity. In many cases, these injuries involve the spinal cord, traumatic brain damage, or amputation. You may require surgeries, rehabilitation, physical therapy, and other forms of intensive medical treatment.

Catastrophic injuries may involve the following complications.

  • The inability to return to work or work a full-time job
  • Permanent disability, disfigurement, and loss of function
  • Loss of hearing, eyesight, or the use of a limb
  • The need for live-in care and long-term assistance
  • The need for permanent medications
  • The need for prosthetics or mobility equipment, such as wheelchairs

Legal Options for Catastrophic Injury Victims

If you sustain a catastrophic injury due to the negligence of another person or entity, you have the right to pursue a claim for your damages. Your legal options will depend on the circumstances surrounding your accident.

  • Personal injury lawsuits: If you sustain a catastrophic injury due to someone else’s negligent actions, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against him or her in Colorado civil court. You can also file a claim against a company or a government agency that may be liable for your accident.
  • Insurance claims: Many accidents are covered by insurance policies, such as motor vehicle collisions or injuries on someone else’s property. In these situations, you can file an insurance claim against the at-fault party’s policy to recover your damages. If your insurance claim is unsuccessful, you could escalate it to a lawsuit.
  • Workers’ compensation claims: If you are injured while performing your job duties, you could file a workers’ compensation claim to recover benefits. However, filing a workers’ comp claim will prevent you from filing a lawsuit against your employer.
  • Product liability lawsuits: If you sustain a catastrophic injury due to a dangerous or defective product, you can file a lawsuit against the manufacturer, distributor, or retailer of that product.

Different legal options are best for different cases. To identify your optimal pathway to maximum compensation, speak to a Boulder catastrophic injury lawyer at Purvis Thomson, LLP.
