Catastrophic Injuries

When a person suffers a Catastrophic Injury as the result of someone else’s fault or negligence, it often involves a difficult recovery process, multiple surgeries, and possibly a lifetime of medical treatment, pain, and suffering. 

These injuries can be caused by but NOT limited to:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Swimming pool accidents
  • Sports accidents
  • Sports accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Falls from a height
  • Violent crime
  • Fires and explosions
  • Medical malpractice
  • Defective products

Did you know employers are to:

  • Are you unable to return to work as the result of an accident?
  • Are you prevented from earning a living in the same or similar line of work you were in pre-injury as the result of an accident? 
  • Were you or someone you know given a permanent disability by a doctor?  If yes, will you require some level of assistance (In-home care, for example)? 
  • Do you or someone you know have an injury to the spine, spinal cord, brain, skull, or spinal fractures due to an accident? 

You might have a claim and be able to recover damages!

In every catastrophic injury case, the injured person has pain and suffering but also may have monetary damages.  Damages are not only higher in a catastrophic injury case, but the facts and arguments needed to prove the extent of those damages are more complex.

Damages suffered in a catastrophic accident can be extensive and may result in bodily harm and disability, as well as loss of employment and or wages, and ongoing medical expenses. Which is why discussing the case with an experienced attorney at Whitehead Law Group such as Kevin W. Whitehead, Esq. is the first step to take.
