What are Catastrophic Injuries?
Catastrophic injuries that are the result of negligence require help from an experienced trial lawyer. A lawsuit or claim must be filed to seek full compensation when negligent actions of another party cause life-long ailments. Catastrophic injuries include the following:
- Birth injuries
- Loss of sight or hearing
- Loss of limb
- Spinal cord injuries leading to paralysis
- Brain injuries
- Permanent organ damage
If another party’s actions led to the injuries, that party must be held accountable. Our Chicago catastrophic injury lawyers help individuals who have suffered catastrophic injuries to seek justice and full compensation. The compensatory damages we pursue will include both economic and non-economic damages, including:
- Cost of medical care, current and future
- Costs of skilled nursing
- Rehabilitation costs
- Lost wages
- Loss of earning capacity
- Loss of quality of life

When a significant injury is the result of another party’s negligent or reckless behavior, the individual has the right to seek compensation for what occurred.
