Fort Myers Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

A catastrophic injury is a life-changing event. The physical pain and suffering the victim is going through may be temporary, or it may be permanent. The same goes for the mental trauma and PTSD they may experience in the aftermath of the incident; it can last for months, or it can last a lifetime. Simply said, a catastrophic injury is potentially the most impactful point in many people’s lives. No amount of money can make up for what was done to you or your loved one, but a personal injury settlement or lawsuit verdict can help cover the medical expenses, lost income, property damage, and future cost of care that you would have to otherwise pay. The Fort Myers catastrophic injury lawyer at Cardinal Law, P.A. can help you seek these damages and more.

Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

While there is no medical term for a catastrophic injury and no specific medical definition for what is classified as catastrophic, catastrophic injuries can be thought of as injuries that result in tremendous pain and suffering, require extensive medical care, and/or cause extensive permanent disfigurement or disability. Examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Spinal cord injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Amputation
  • Severe burns
  • Internal organ damage
  • Permanent disfigurement or scarring
  • A bone fracture or other injury that requires multiple surgeries or results in loss of mobility
  • A significant number of fractured bones
  • Full or partial loss of vision or hearing
  • Significant lacerations
  • Any other injury accident in which the victim nearly died

A catastrophic injury can also be classified as having multiple serious injuries throughout the body. For example, a motorcyclist who is hit by a pickup truck who fractures their femur, breaks their hip, and suffers a concussion could be thought of as a victim who is catastrophically injured.
