What is a Catastrophic Injury?

As mentioned above, a catastrophic injury is an injury from which a victim cannot fully recover. Not only are these injuries painful, but they affect a survivor’s life in numerous other ways. For example, a disability resulting from a catastrophic injury might prevent an individual from returning to work or even learning new skills to secure gainful employment. To compensate survivors for the severe impact these injuries have, damages awarded in such cases are often quite substantial.

Below are some common examples of catastrophic injuries:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Traumatic amputations
  • Crushed bone injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Organ damage
  • Severe and disfiguring burn injuries
  • Death

Many of these injuries result in the loss of certain functions. To cope with the loss of these functions, many catastrophic injury survivors require the use of assistive devices for the rest of their lives.

Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

Numerous accidents can potentially result in catastrophic injuries. That said, certain accidents are more likely to cause these types of injuries than others.

Below are the most common causes of catastrophic injuries:

  • Motor vehicle accidents, especially those that involve large commercial trucks
  • Medical malpractice
  • Construction site accidents
  • Defective consumer products
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Slip and falls

Damages in a Catastrophic Injury Case

Due to the far-reaching implications of a catastrophic injury, the damages awarded in such cases are often quite extensive.

Damages in a catastrophic injury can cover the following:

  • Present and future medical expenses: This can include hospitalizations, emergency treatment, ongoing surgeries, and related medical treatment.
  • Lost wages and decreased earning capacity: If you are unable to work, you can be compensated for past wages as well as any future income due to your inability to work.
  • Assistive devices or home modifications: Some injuries may be permanent. If you need modifications to your home or devices to adapt to your injuries, your claim may also cover these expenses.
  • Pain and suffering: This can cover mental anguish, loss of enjoyment of life, anxiety, and the emotional distress that is the result of your injuries.
  • Loss of consortium: If you lost a family member in an accident, you may be able to recover damages for the lost affection and companionship your loved one would have provided.
  • Disfigurement: For individuals who suffered disfigurement such as loss of limbs or scarring, you can be compensated for the pain of having to live with these injuries.

Additionally, Texas awards punitive damages. Unlike the damages listed above, punitive damages can be awarded as a form of punishment if the actions that led to a victim’s injuries are particularly egregious. Punitive damages cannot exceed more than twice the amount of economic damages plus the amount equal to non-economic damages.
