The Costs Associated with Catastrophic Injuries


A catastrophic injury is one that will permanently affect the victim’s quality of life and his or her ability to earn a livelihood. This type of devastating injury can result from a Las Vegas car accident, pedestrian accident, slip-and-fall accident, or even a workplace accident. Victims who have suffered serious injuries because of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing would be well advised to obtain more information about their legal rights and options.

Accidents that result in serious injuries and permanent disabilities are often costly. They result in significant medical bills. When calculating medical expenses related to a catastrophic injury, it is important to consider all past and future bills. Permanent disabilities often require surgical procedures, medical devices, prescription drugs, rehabilitation services, and routine checkups.

It is also common for injured workers to lose wages as they spend time away from work recovering from their injuries. Most injuries that are classified as catastrophic will affect the victim’s ability to work. In many cases, the victim may never again be able to earn a livelihood, let alone return to his or her job. Examples of catastrophic injuries include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burn injuries, and limb amputations.

There are many different costs associated with catastrophic injuries and they are often difficult to accurately estimate. A skilled Las Vegas personal injury lawyer can help victims assess their current and future losses and help increase their chances of receiving fair and full compensation.
