What is a Catastrophic Injury?

While the term “catastrophic injury” is not clearly defined in the legal world, it is generally understood to include any injury that results in long-term or permanent disability. These injuries are often severe and life-threatening, as well as life-altering.

Some of the most common types of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Severe burns
  • Amputations
  • Paralysis
  • Organ damage
  • Eye injuries
  • Ear injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Multiple broken bones
  • Severe soft tissue damage
  • Chronic pain
  • Toxic exposure

These are just a few examples of the types of injuries that are considered catastrophic. Generally, any injury that is disabling, life-threatening, or life-altering may be categorized as catastrophic. This includes both physical and emotional injuries.

How Are Catastrophic Injuries Caused?

Catastrophic injuries can be caused by any type of accident, whether it is a car crash, a construction site mishap, a slip and fall, a defective product, or something else. In some cases, the negligence or wrongful act of another person or party causes these accidents and the resulting injuries.

At Burnetti, P.A., we represent clients with catastrophic injuries caused by all types of accidents, including but not limited to:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Defective products
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Workplace accidents
  • Premises liability

When another person or a company is negligent, careless, or in violation of the law, they can be held legally responsible for their actions and the resulting injuries. Our catastrophic injury attorneys can help you understand your rights and legal options.

How Do You Prove Catastrophic Injuries in Florida?

Whether you were catastrophically injured in a car crash, a slip and fall, or another type of accident, you will need to prove that you suffered injuries and damages as a direct result of someone else’s negligence or wrongful act. This is true in all personal injury cases, including those involving catastrophic injuries.

There are four key elements to establishing negligence:

  • Duty of care: You must prove that the at-fault party owed you a duty of care. For example, drivers owe other motorists, pedestrians, and bicyclists a duty of care to follow traffic laws and drive safely and soberly.
  • Breach of duty: You must prove that the at-fault party breached the duty of care. If a driver was texting while driving, for example, this would be a breach of duty.
  • Causation: You must prove that the at-fault party’s breach of duty is what directly caused your accident and injuries. If a drunk driver ran a red light and hit your car, and you suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result, this would be an example of causation.
  • Damages: You must prove that you suffered actual damages as a result of the accident. This includes both economic and non-economic damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
