Catastrophic Injury Claims

Injuries that are considered catastrophic (due to the enormous impact they have on the lives of the individuals who experience them) include the following:

  • Brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Loss of sight
  • Deafness
  • Amputation
  • Severe burns
  • Multiple fractures
  • or other neurological disorders

Catastrophic Injuries can change your life and that of your family forever. Management of such injuries can be complex and may require the assistance of numerous health professionals including physicians, consultants, nurses, therapists, and counsellors. Individuals may recover from some catastrophic injuries if they receive timely and proper medical treatment; however, others may experience permanent disability, significant suffering and reduced life spans.

Special equipment may be required and your home may need to be adapted. Months of rehabilitation may follow the accident, which has led to your serious injury. Re-training may become necessary. For some people, such injury will mean the end of their working lives. These types of cases can be very complex.
