About Catastrophic Injury

Photo of an amputee working with a physical therapistCatastrophic injuries require extensive, prolonged medical care, and some wounds may never fully heal. Many victims are permanently disabled or disfigured, injuries that can have significant emotional and physical effects for the rest of their lives.

Examples of catastrophic injury include:

  • Traumatic head or brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Amputation or loss of limb
  • Permanent impairment to vision or hearing
  • Disfiguring facial injuries
  • Crush injuries
  • Third-degree burns 

Catastrophic injuries do not always arise from serious accidents. These injuries are qualified by any injury that leaves the victim unable to work for an extended period of time, requires multiple medical and therapeutic appointments, and causes severe pain and suffering. When negligence is involved, significant compensation is often awarded to catastrophic injury victims and families.  Settlements and courtroom verdicts can reach multi-millions dollar figures.  But, insurance companies don’t volunteer to pay high dollar restitution for the negligent acts of their insured. To receive full, fair compensation, victims need the help of a knowledgeable, aggressive attorney.

The Need for Compensation

Insurance adjusters and defense lawyers are notorious for doing all they can to minimize even the most catastrophic claim, and they often try to pin blame on the victim. After decades in practice, Leahy Law has the skill, know-how and resources to prove liability in injury cases. An important component of our work includes substantiating our client’s extensive damages, present and future. Since Washington does not permit punitive damages, proving actual economic damages is vital. These include medical costs, loss of income, pain and suffering, and quality of life damages.
