Daly City Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

When you hear the term catastrophic injury, you recognize the gravity implied. In order to qualify as a catastrophic injury in the eyes of the law, however, there are requirements. If someone else’s negligence leaves you or someone you love with a catastrophic injury, you should not delay consulting with an experienced Daly City catastrophic injury lawyer. 

Defining a Catastrophic Injury

In California, there is no exact legal definition for catastrophic injuries, but the basic meaning can be deduced from different sources. This includes the definition provided for Workers’ Compensation, which states that a catastrophic injury includes – but is not limited to – loss of a limb, paralysis, severe burn, or severe head injury. This helps identify the severity of the injuries involved, but there’s more to it than just this. Consider the following:

  • Catastrophic injuries are either long-term or permanent in nature.
  • Catastrophic injuries cause serious pain. 
  • Catastrophic injuries often involve the loss of – or the lost use of – a limb or organ.

Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

The following examples of catastrophic injuries can help you better understand the kinds of injuries that qualify for this legal classification:

  • Paralysis
  • Loss of a limb (or loss of its use) 
  • Loss of an organ
  • Injuries that lead to blindness and/or deafness 
  • Severe and/or disfiguring burns
  • Severe traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)

Your Catastrophic Injury Lawyer’s Role

When a claim reaches the magnitude of a catastrophic injury, having professional legal counsel on your side is important for all the following reasons:

  • Helping to ensure that you make the right decisions for you throughout the legal process (with your most complete recovery in mind)
  • Corresponding with the involved insurance company on your behalf and skillfully negotiating with the insurance company for the compensation to which you’re entitled 
  • Defending your legal rights from the start and ensuring that they’re upheld to the end
  • Building your strongest claim by gathering and cogently compiling all relevant evidence, recording eyewitness testimony, and hiring expert witnesses whose expertise bolsters your position
  • Preparing to move forward with a lawsuit against the insurance company if it does not engage in fair practices and/or refuses to negotiate in good faith

Your Full Range of Losses

The losses you experience in relation to a catastrophic injury can be exceptionally difficult to assess accurately and can be just as difficult to overstate. Your claim will need to address all the following losses in their entirety, which includes assessing related losses into the future:

  • Your medical costs
  • Your lost earnings, which typically involve permanent disability
  • Your pain and suffering
