What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic personal injury encompasses a myriad of accidents and liabilities caused by anothers actions. Here are some of the more common categories of personal injury litigation:
Truck, car and motorcycle accidents are the leading cause of personal injury litigation. Claims are usually held against insurance companies of the driver at fault. Damages can range from minor injuries to death. Cases can become more complex if defective automobile parts contributed to the accident.
Workers' compensation covers most injuries and health conditions that are caused in the workplace. However, financial hardship, loss of income and future medical care may not be sufficiently covered by workers' compensation. Third-party entities such as the manufacturer of defective equipment used on the job can also be found liable for a job injury.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, companies pay $700 billion in damages for serious injury or death from defective products every year. Unsafe products include defects in design, manufacturing and marketing. Defective product litigation ranges from defective medical devices to SUV rollovers.
Prescription and over-the-counter drugs prescribed by medical professionals we know and trust are causing thousands of deaths a year. Many of these defective drugs have been inadequately tested and are released into the market prematurely. These drugs have hazardous side effects or lead to other serious health ailments causing catastrophic injuries or death.
Sports injuries can range from sprains to brain injuries. Professional athletes and physically active non-professionals can suffer debilitating and life-changing injuries from faulty equipment, inadequate medical treatment or some other form of negligence.
