What are catastrophic injuries?
All injuries warrant compensation if they have been caused by the negligence of another party. This is especially true of catastrophic injuries.
A catastrophic injury, also termed a serious injury, is one that has a long-lasting, permanent effect on the victim. These injuries can take place in a split second. They often mean the victim is subject to paying for lifelong care for the rest of their lives.
These sorts of injuries affect not just physical and mental health. They also impact quality of life. If it is found that someone has sustained a catastrophic injury as a direct result of the negligence of an organisation or person(s), then the victim has a right to claim financial compensation.
Owing to the fact that these sorts of accidents often require things such as in-home care, or additions/changes to the home such as the installation of stair lifts or wheelchair ramps, the financial repercussions of them can be substantial. If you have been in a car accident that has resulted in a catastrophic injury, Accident Advice Helpline can help you receive the maximum amount possible in compensation from whoever was responsible.
