What is considered a catastrophic injury?
What is considered a catastrophic injury? The American Medical Association defines a catastrophic injury as a serious injury to the spine, the spinal cord, or brain. So you have the official definition, but what does that mean to you? Regardless of the nature of your accident or injury, if your injury is serious enough that you have long-term effects from it, or you’ve experienced a deformity, it is catastrophic for you.
If you have a catastrophic injury, you may need experts, such as life care planners to formulate a plan of care for the rest of your life. Someone who can help you to determine how much your medical bills are likely to be in the period of your life and how much medical equipment will be on the period of your life. As experienced Personal Injury attorneys, those are all things that we are experienced in dealing with.
