Even a relatively minor car accident can leave you seriously injured. A serious car accident that leads to a catastrophic injury, on the other hand, is a life-altering accident – recovery from which is typically a lifelong journey. If another driver’s negligence leaves you or someone you love catastrophically injured, you need the professional legal counsel of a Granbury, Texas, car accident lawyer.
While there is no definitive classification of catastrophic injuries, the term is usually reserved for permanent injuries that you will carry with you into your future. Most notably, if an injury stops you from returning to work and making a living, it likely qualifies as a catastrophic injury. In general, catastrophic injuries are those that have significant permanent consequences in your life:
All told, a catastrophic injury permanently interferes with your former way of life. An injury that precludes you from continuing to take care of yourself and/or from earning a living is unambiguously such an injury.
While many kinds of injuries can be classified as catastrophic, there are several that are most closely associated with the classification of catastrophic:
The financial consequences of a catastrophic injury are difficult to overestimate. Along with the expenses of a less serious injury, you will face the need for ongoing medical and therapeutic treatment. Further, you will have to cope with your diminished capacity to earn a living – if you can return to work at all. Depending upon the scope of your injury, you may also need home health care and/or to have your home retrofitted to accommodate your physical limitations. Every catastrophic injury case is unique to its own circumstances, but the financial consequences of such injuries are nearly always immense.
