Understanding Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries are severe and often have long-term, if not lifelong, effects. They can result from various incidents, including car accidents, workplace mishaps, medical malpractice, or slip-and-fall accidents. Such injuries often involve significant harm to the spinal cord, brain, or other major organs, potentially leading to permanent disability or disfigurement.
Common catastrophic injuries include:
- Spinal cord damage
- Organ damage
- Birth injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Amputation or extreme lacerations
- Paralysis and paralysis
These kinds of life-changing events often require significant medical attention, leading to costly hospital bills that you shouldn't have to pay for as a result of someone else's negligence. Our attorneys are committed to helping you take legal action and holding the responsible parties accountable for their actions.
What Are Your Legal Rights After a Catastrophic Injury?
If someone else's negligence or carelessness caused your catastrophic injury, you have the legal right to seek compensation.
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be entitled to:
- Payment for medical expenses
- Lost wages or loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering damages
- Psychological damage compensation
- Punitive damages, in some cases
At Metzger Wickersham, our lawyers understand the complexities of catastrophic injury cases and will work hard to ensure you receive full compensation for your losses.
Evidence in Catastrophic Injury Claims
To pursue a successful compensation claim, it's essential to have solid evidence that links your injury to the negligent party.
This evidence is typically gathered through the following:
- Medical records
- Eyewitness accounts
- Expert testimony and medical reports
- Accident scene photos or videos
- Testimony from expert witnesses
- Police reports
- Documentation of lost wages or earning capacity
Having an experienced lawyer on your side is essential to gathering and presenting the evidence required for a successful outcome. At Metzger Wickersham, we understand the complexities associated with catastrophic injury cases and can provide the necessary legal counsel to help you obtain the maximum compensation available under the law.

Our commitment extends beyond the courtroom. Recognizing the financial and emotional upheaval catastrophic injuries can cause, we strive to support our clients in their recovery journey.
