Introduction to Catastrophic Injury Claims
Any injury can feel like a catastrophe. Yet in most cases, the injury eventually heals and the pain goes away. Unfortunately, some injuries result in permanent impairment. These are injuries that truly change your life, restricting your physical activity, making it difficult or impossible to work and requiring ongoing and costly medical care.

Not all attorneys are equipped to handle catastrophic injury cases. These cases are far more complicated, and the stakes are much higher. There are things that must be done that do not have to be done in less serious cases. We at The Durst Law Firm have the expertise and the drive to go the distance and ensure that victims of catastrophic injuries get the full compensation that they are entitled to under the law.
Types of Catastrophic Injury Cases We Handle
- Spinal Cord Injuries - Depending on the location and severity of the injury, spinal cord injuries can result in partial or complete paralysis. In the most tragic cases, a person can suffer complete paralysis from the neck down. Injuries such as these may require millions of dollars in medical care and adaptive devices.
- Vision or Hearing Loss - Blindness or deafness can be the result of various injuries and accidents. Impairments to hearing or vision can interfere with a victim’s ability to work, perform basic life functions, and ability to enjoy many previously pleasurable activities.
- Burn Injuries - Serious burns can cause nerve damage which result in lifelong pain, loss of sensation, and other harmful effects. Additionally, burn injuries can leave victims scarred both physically and mentally, limiting functionality and robbing them of the enjoyment of life.
- Traumatic Brain Injuries - A traumatic brain injury can have multiple effects, including mood changes, fatigue, loss of memory, cognitive impairment, or even loss of muscle or organ function. As such, these injuries can result in serious long term behavioral and social problems, even after other symptoms have been resolved.
- Damage to Internal Organs - Injuries to one’s internal organs can be serious, even life threatening events . They may require organ transplants, ongoing care, follow-up surgeries, and a range of related health problems.
- Amputation - Serious accidents such as automobile, workplace, or crushing accidents can result in the loss of one or more limbs. This can lead to enormous medical bills as prosthetics, surgeries, and extensive physical therapy can be required. Victims may also lose the ability to work, function, or take pleasure in life the same way they had previously.
