WHAT COUNTS AS A CATASTROPHIC INJURY IN PA?
If someone is injured to the point that they aren’t ever able to work properly, that is considered a catastrophic injury. These kinds of injuries are so difficult to deal with because they usually happen from a sudden accident. The nature of the injuries leaves the victims with lifelong disabilities, making bills rack up from required medical care and the inability to work.
There can be any number of types of injuries that may be regarded as catastrophic but some of the most common ones are:
- Serious burns
- Spinal injuries
- Head injuries
These types of injuries are commonly seen in catastrophic injury cases because their relation to the central nervous system and appendages mean the victim is more likely to suffer paralysis and paraplegia.
Compensation For Catastrophic Injuries
If their injury was caused by the negligence of another person or entity, a person or their family can sue to get compensation for the physical, emotional, and financial injuries they’ve suffered. The exact payouts will depend on the circumstances of your particular case, but in general a family can get compensation for:
Medical Bills: suffering a catastrophic injury means someone will have undergo extensive medical care to treat the injury, and will need ongoing healthcare potentially for life for lasting issues and pain
Financial Support Lost: the person who suffered the injury is no longer able to do gainful work, depending on the circumstances of their work their family is entitled to compensation for the income that they no longer get
Pain and Suffering: these injuries are hugely traumatic, causing extreme physical pain as well as emotional and psychological pain from the resulting disabilities and scarring
Lost Companionship: While it’s difficult to put a monetary value on what someone brings to their family’s life, the family can get compensation for what they’re missing if the injured person is no longer able to provide things like intimacy
