Catastrophic Injuries

Representation from New Hampshire & Maine Injury Attorneys

Physical injuries are considered catastrophic when victims experience severe, long-term or life-altering damages. Catastrophic injuries also tend to involve substantial amounts of medical procedures and treatment as well as lengthy periods of care. The consequences that catastrophic injuries pose to victims and their families can be overwhelming. Intensive, specialized and long-term medical treatments commonly cripple a victim's financial stability by burying him or her in insurmountable debt. In addition, the emotional repercussions can also be severe, as physical limitations, whether temporary or permanent, can greatly compromise a victim's quality of life.

There are no hard lines that conclusively define what constitutes a catastrophic injury. In the most general terms, catastrophic injuries will commonly result in more serious medical procedures or treatment. They may also greatly limit a victim's abilities to work or enjoy life as they normally would for weeks, months, years or even permanently. Some common examples of catastrophic injuries include:
