What Are Catastrophic Injuries?
In general, injuries that are permanently disabling to some degree are considered “catastrophic” in nature. Catastrophic injuries can be fatal, but they can also result in only partial disability or temporary disability. The severity of a catastrophic injury depends greatly on the circumstances leading up to the accident, as well as the type of injury sustained.
Catastrophic injuries must be diagnosed by a medical professional. If you or your loved one has been diagnosed with a severe, debilitating injury, including any of the ones listed here, contact The Fran Haasch Law Group as soon as possible. In most cases, you have four years from the date of injury to file a personal injury claim in the state of Florida; however, the sooner you are able to bring a claim, the better your chances of a successful outcome. Our catastrophic injury attorneys in Clearwater can begin preparing your case by working with a team of experts and specialists to determine exactly how the accident occurred and who is at fault.

Compensation in Catastrophic Injury Cases
Like all types of injuries, catastrophic injuries can and do occur in a variety of ways. Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents are common culprits when it comes to catastrophic injuries. Slip and fall accidents, swimming pool accidents, construction accidents, and even dog bites can all result in catastrophic injuries, as well.
If your loved one suffered catastrophic injuries in any type of accident, you likely have a lot of questions and concerns. How will you be able to afford the medical bills? What will you do if you depended on your loved one for income and he or she is no longer able to work? Will you have to take time off work to care for your loved one? What will the future look like for your family?
There are many unique considerations when it comes to compensation in catastrophic injury cases. These situations often require more extensive medical attention than other types of injuries. Additionally, the emotional consequences of having a loved one suffer such a serious injury can be overwhelming.
Depending on the exact circumstances involved in your situation, you may be able to recover compensation for the following damages:
