Virginia Catastrophic Injury Attorneys

Helping the Victims of Severe, Life-Altering Injuries

When accidents are very severe, victims may suffer catastrophic injuries. In a legal sense, catastrophic injuries are those that are so acute in nature, they prohibit the victim from returning to his or her normal life. Catastrophic injuries typically prevent an individual from returning to work or obtaining any form of gainful employment whatsoever.

Catastrophic injuries typically require extensive, ongoing medical care. This can quickly become incredibly expensive, with the total lifetime cost of many catastrophic injuries reaching the million and multi-million dollar range. This often places a severe financial strain on both the injured individual and his or her family.

Breit Cantor can help you work to recover the compensation you are owed. Contact our Virginia serious injury attorneys at (888) 635-9500 for a free consultation. Offices located in Virginia Beach & Richmond.

Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

There are a few injuries that are generally always categorized as “catastrophic.” However, an injury that causes severe, long-term/lifelong disability or disfigurement can be considered a catastrophic injury.

Some examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Severe burns
  • Amputation
  • Nerve damage/paralysis

If you were catastrophically injured as a result of someone else’s careless, reckless, or negligent actions, you may be entitled to receive compensation. While financial recovery cannot undo the pain and suffering you and your family have been through, it can help with the cost of immediate and ongoing medical treatment, lost income/wages, lost earning ability, and non-economic damages like physical pain and emotional suffering.
