What Are Catastrophic Injuries?

In personal injury law, “catastrophic injury” is a broad term used to describe a very serious injury that can dramatically impact a person’s life. This type of injury often leads to long-term or even permanent disabilities or impairments. A very injured person could be prevented from performing their daily activities, returning to work, or even living a normal life.

Most catastrophic injuries can happen in a wide range of different types of accidents, including motor vehicle accidents, falls, workplace accidents, and medical malpractice like birth injuries. To be clear, the consequences of a catastrophic injury almost universally extend beyond physical and permanent damage. The trauma can adversely impact mental health, financial stability, and a person’s overall quality of life.

Further, many catastrophically injured may require lifelong care and specialized support to navigate the challenges posed by their new reality.

We Handle All Types of Catastrophic Injury Cases

All serious catastrophic physical injuries will require immediate medical attention from a qualified medical professional. In most cases, a person who suffered a catastrophic injury will need some form of specialized rehabilitative care. At Ladah Law Firm, we handle the full range of catastrophic injuries.

No matter how your accident happened or the type of catastrophic injury you are dealing with, we are prepared to help you and your family get justice. Along with other types of catastrophic accident cases, our Las Vegas catastrophic injury attorneys have the experience to take on the following types of catastrophic injuries: 

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that more than 210,000 people were hospitalized for traumatic brain injury (TBI) in 2020 alone. TBI is a complex injury and the impact on a person’s life can be devastating. We work closely with medical experts to assess the full extent of severe brain injuries and help victims secure the maximum financial compensation. 
  • Broken Bones (Multiple/Complex Fracture): Severe fractures can lead to prolonged disability. They often require extensive medical treatment, potentially including surgery and physical rehabilitation. We understand the complexities of these cases and strive to help our clients get the best possible outcome. 
  • Severe Burns: A third-degree burn can be a catastrophic injury. Burn injuries often result in significant scarring, physical pain, and deep emotional trauma. A third-degree burn may require long-term care, including surgeries, skin grafts, and psychological support. If you suffer any type of severe burns, contact our Las Vegas catastrophic injury lawyer for help. 
  • Internal Organ Damage: Internal organ injuries can be terrifying. An injury to internal organs can be life-threatening and may require urgent and extensive medical treatment. We focus on ensuring that our clients receive compensation for all medical treatment.
  • Spinal Cord Injury: According to data from the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, there are approximately 18,000 new spinal cord injuries nationwide each year. A spinal cord injury can result in partial or complete paralysis. The costs can be extreme. Unfortunately, a spinal cord injury is almost invariably permanent injuries. 
  • Amputations: Losing a limb is a life-changing event. It affects mobility, independence, and psychological well-being. Our Las Vegas catastrophic injury attorneys take aggressive action to help injured victims cover prosthetics, rehabilitation, home modifications, and other damages. 

How to get to us From Las Vegas:

Understanding Liability for a Catastrophic Accident in Nevada

Fault matters. In Nevada, establishing liability for a catastrophic accident is key. Every serious accident in Las Vegas—whether a car accident, semi-truck crash, slip and fall, or other premises liability claim—requires a thorough investigation. Indeed, the importance of a meticulous investigation cannot be overstated.

A Las Vegas catastrophic accident lawyer can help you gather evidence, track/down interview witnesses, and enlist experts to reconstruct the accident. When you can prove fault, you will be in the best possible position to get punitive damages and recover the maximum compensation. Notably, Nevada follows the legal principle of comparative fault.

For instance, if a victim is found to be 20 percent responsible for a motor vehicle collision in Las Vegas, they would bear 20 percent of the blame for their damages. If that person suffered $50,000 in total damages, they would only be able to recover $40,000 in compensation from the at-fault party. Every percentage point of fault matters.

The system underscores the importance of a comprehensive liability assessment. A Las Vegas catastrophic accident lawyer can help you navigate Nevada’s comparative fault standard. 

Know the Personal Injury Statute of Limitations

Deadlines matter for any personal injury case—and catastrophic accident claims are certainly no exception. In Nevada, the statute of limitations for most personal injury cases is two years. To be clear, the legal timeframe is crucial. It will control the length of time that a person who suffered injuries has to take legal action to seek justice and compensation for their damages.

Failure to file a legal claim within this period can result in the loss of the right to seek compensation. Do not fall behind in the claims process. Consult with an experienced Las Vegas catastrophic accident lawyer as soon as possible after a major accident.

Families Often Have to Provide Additional Support in These Cases

For several different reasons, catastrophic injury claims can be incredibly challenging. A devastating accident could impact an entire family. A spouse, child, parent, or other loved one may need to provide emotional support, additional care,  assistance with daily activities, medical expenses, and even some guidance in navigating the legal claims process.

Indeed, following serious accidents in Las Vegas, families may find themselves coordinating medical appointments, managing rehabilitation schedules, adapting homes to meet accessibility needs, and consulting with an attorney. There is no doubt that the emotional toll and financial strain of sustained injuries can also be considerable. Our firm is committed to helping families successfully navigate the catastrophic injury claims process.

Our Las Vegas Catastrophic Injury Attorney Helps Victims and Families Secure the Absolute MAXIMUM COMPENSATION

How much is your catastrophic personal injury claim worth? The answer depends on many different case-specific factors and can be discussed with your catastrophic injury lawyer. In Nevada, injured victims of car accidents have the right to pursue compensatory support for both their economic losses and their non-economic damages from the at-fault party.

At Ladah Law Firm, our Las Vegas catastrophic accident lawyers fight tirelessly to hold defendants and insurance companies accountable. Through a catastrophic injury claim, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation for: 

  • Property damage, such as vehicle repairs; 
  • Ambulance costs;
  • Emergency medical treatment; 
  • Medical bills; 
  • Medications; 
  • Medical devices; 
  • Physical therapy; 
  • Mental health support; 
  • Lost wages; 
  • Loss of earning potential; 
  • Pain and suffering; 
  • Mental distress; 
  • Loss of life enjoyment; and 
  • Long-term disability.

In seeking compensation for a catastrophic injury lawsuit, special consideration must be given to future costs and intangible damages. Catastrophic injuries often result in a permanent disability. As a consequence of severe injuries, the victim often needs ongoing medical care, rehabilitation, assistive devices, and home modifications.

These future medical costs can be substantial and must be properly calculated to ensure the injured party is fully compensated. Beyond that, non-economic damages—including pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and emotional and physical harm and distress—must also be properly accounted for. You must have a top-tier Las Vegas catastrophic accident lawyer who can help you secure the absolute maximum financial settlement or jury verdict.
