What Constitutes a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries can stem from car accidents, falls, medical malpractice, and a host of other incidents. Some examples of these life-altering conditions include:
- Spinal cord trauma
- Brain injuries
- Organ damage
- Second- or third-degree burns
- Loss of hearing or eyesight
- Skull fractures
Catastrophic injuries can disrupt your life indefinitely. You may require hospitalization, corrective surgeries, and in-home healthcare. These costs can be staggering. However, we’re prepared to seek the full cost of your necessary medical expenses.

How Our Legal Team Will Fight For You
Investigate the Cause of Your Injuries
Our team needs evidence to support your case – even if your injuries’ cause is relatively straightforward. Evidence may include:
- The accident or police report
- Your medical history
- Your treatment records
- Testimony from eyewitnesses, including first-responders and bystanders
- Expert testimony from accident reconstruction specialists and healthcare professionals
- Photos of your external injuries
- Imaging scans and lab test results
- Security camera or traffic camera recordings
- Omissions made by the at-fault party
We encourage you to save all documentation related to your injuries, including the names of your medications and various billing statements.
Determine the At-Fault and Liable Parties
“At fault” and “liable” do not mean the same thing. The at-fault party caused your accident and may include a negligent:
- Product manufacturer
- Healthcare professional
- Government organization
- Property owner or manager
- Dog owner
The liable party pays for your losses. For instance, if you suffered serious injuries in a car accident, the negligent motorist’s insurer would be liable and therefore responsible for your damages.
File Your Insurance Claim and/or Lawsuit
While we’re not afraid of a good legal fight, we hope to settle your case through insurance negotiations. To file your insurance claim, we will:
- Draft and file all necessary paperwork
- Communicate with the claims adjuster
- Review the liable policy
- Send your demand letter
- Negotiate a settlement
- Protect you from bad faith insurance practices
We can also file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. You can trust our attorneys to:
- Exchange evidence with the other party’s legal team (which is standard protocol)
- Take depositions
- Cross-examine witnesses
- Present your injuries’ severity and damages’ cost
- Fight for what you deserve

What Should You Do After Suffering a Catastrophic Injury?
We hope that by now, you’ve sought medical attention. If not, now would be a great time to do so. While visiting a doctor, document all aspects of your appointment, including who examined you, your diagnosis, and your treatment plan.
We also recommend:
Following Your Treatment Plan
BMC Family Practices emphasizes the importance of adhering to treatment. Doing so not only improves your prognosis but also strengthens your case. You want to show the other party that you did everything possible to better your condition.
Limiting Your Social Media Use
To prevent the claims adjuster from using your own words against you, we recommend:
- Limiting what you share online, including statuses, videos, and posts
- Not accepting friend requests from “friends of friends”
- Not following the at-fault party on any social media platform
- Refusing to respond to direct messages from the involved parties
You don’t have to delete your social media pages, but we advise against actively posting and using them.
Thinking Twice About That First Settlement Offer
Once you accept an insurance settlement, that’s it; your case is over. When reviewing prospective settlement offers, share them with your lawyer. They can explain whether any offer meets your past, present, and future needs.
