Catastrophic injuries are defined by their severity relative to other injuries. Catastrophic injuries often require rehabilitative care, limit a victim’s ability to work, and may even lead to permanent disabilities.
Catastrophic injuries are routinely caused by:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Premises liability incidents
- Slip and fall incidents
- Truck accidents
Spinal injuries are considered “incomplete” if the victim still has control of some motor functions below the impacted area or “complete” if the victim no longer has any ability to move anything below the impacted area. Even “incomplete” spinal injuries are life-changing and may constitute a disability. Victims may not be able to work and should be duly compensated for their inability to earn a reliable living.
Even a seemingly benign slip and fall can result in traumatic brain injuries, or any neurological condition brought about by external force. Many people do not realize they have sustained a traumatic brain injury and tragically delay seeking treatment, a mistake that can result in death. You should always see a doctor right away after any blow to the head.
Lingering or worsening sensory issues, cognitive difficulties, and/or behavioral problems may prevent you from working or maintaining the quality of life you enjoyed prior to the accident. In these instances, our Brunswick catastrophic injury attorney may be able to help you to obtain substantial compensation if your brain injury was the result of another party’s negligence.
Thermal burns can result from prolonged exposure to flames in a vehicular accident or a fire-related incident linked to another party’s failure to maintain safe property conditions. Radiation, chemical, and electrical burns can also lead to catastrophic injuries. Burns of any kind often leave a victim disfigured and have the potential to permanently damage nerve endings.
In a personal injury lawsuit, a burn victim may be able to recover compensation for disfigurement, loss of consortium, and physical and emotional pain and suffering in addition to calculable economic damages.

In Georgia, you will generally have up to two years from the date of an incident to file a personal injury lawsuit. You may get extra time if you did not initially discover an accident-related injury, such as a traumatic brain injury.
Should catastrophic injuries eventually result in the death of a loved one, you will have up to two years from the date of their passing to initiate a wrongful death lawsuit.
Calculating the appropriate damages in a case involving catastrophic injuries can be an especially complex undertaking. Catastrophic injuries typically require long-term care and permanent reductions to a person’s quality of life.
