What Is a Catastrophic Injury?

Catastrophic injuries are serious, often life-altering injuries that may prevent a person from working or enjoying life. 


Many accident survivors with catastrophic injuries require:

  • Extensive medication
  • Physical therapy
  • Mental health counseling
  • And even home or vehicle modifications


It is not uncommon for a person with a catastrophic injury to suffer millions of dollars in damages over the course of their lifetime. For this reason, it is extremely important to contact an experienced Santa Rosa catastrophic injury attorney if you or a loved one suffered a catastrophic injury due to the negligence of another party. Give yourself the best chance of obtaining compensation that can help cover some of your damages.

What Are Examples of Catastrophic Injuries in California?

Catastrophic injuries may prevent a person from being able to work, enjoy personal or romantic relationships, or live alone. 


Common examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Spinal cord injuries and resulting paralysis
  • Brain injuries, including severe concussions
  • Severe burns and resulting disfigurement
  • Amputation of one or more limbs
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

In California, catastrophic injuries are injuries that prevent people from returning to gainful employment. The physical and mental conditions above can very easily prevent a person from being able to carry out even basic duties.

Can You Sue for a Catastrophic Injury?

Under the right circumstances, you or an affected family member may be able to recover compensation after suffering a catastrophic injury. If another party’s negligence or inaction caused your or your loved one’s injury, then you may have a case. The best way to determine what your legal options are is to speak with an experienced California personal injury lawyer that has experience with catastrophic injuries.


Pure Comparative Negligence in California


California has a pure comparative negligence rule, meaning that if you or your loved one shared fault for the wreck, it could reduce the amount of compensation you receive. It is important to pick an experienced catastrophic injury law firm to help you.


Many attorneys who handle catastrophic injury cases work with medical experts and other professionals to help their clients assess the true value of their damages. An experienced serious injury lawyer can protect evidence, possibly uncover new evidence, and may also negotiate a settlement on your behalf. If your attorney cannot reach a settlement, then it may be necessary to take your case to trial.


A settlement or jury verdict is extremely important for crash survivors with catastrophic injuries. Compensation can help pay for damages associated with the injury, like an inability to work or medical bills.

When Should I Speak With an Injury Attorney?

Your first step after a medical accident should be to receive medical attention. Certain types of injuries, including catastrophic injuries, may not present with symptoms until hours or days after the crash.


Delayed injuries are a possible risk after even a minor accident. Furthermore, you establish evidence of your injuries by seeking medical care. This could come in handy later should you decide to file a claim or lawsuit.


After seeking medical attention, it is time to consider speaking with a serious injury attorney in Santa Rosa as soon as possible.
