Suffering a catastrophic injury not only results in immediate and devastating losses for a person; the repercussions can easily be felt for years after the injury-causing incident. The Maryland catastrophic injury lawyers at Alpert Schreyer work toward improving the well-being of clients in both the present and the long-term future by helping prove the fault of those responsible and finding fair compensation that covers all types of needs.

What Qualifies as Catastrophic?

Most often, a catastrophic injury is defined as physical trauma that leaves a person with long-term or permanent disabilities. Given this broad definition, numerous types of injuries affecting all manner of body parts can qualify as a catastrophic injury. Commonly, trauma affecting the brain, spinal cord, and neck are classified as catastrophic as these injuries are likely to affect a person’s physical capabilities and have lasting effects. Consequences such as paralysis will move an injury into the classification of catastrophic, with paraplegia and quadriplegia being some of the most severe outcomes.

Organ damage can be classified as catastrophic since a person’s health will be seriously affected and intensive surgery may be required to heal and prevent further complications. Burns are especially catastrophic, especially those that range into the second- and third-degree and ones that cover a large portion of the body. These injuries will not only require immediate medical care, but will impede physical abilities, harm a person’s appearance, and lead to complications such as infection.

In any of these cases, it is easy to understand why a person’s injuries would be seen as catastrophic and the medical procedures that are needed will often be equally drastic.

What Does Accident Compensation Accomplish?

Victims of catastrophic injury cannot recover by themselves. Often, these forms of trauma will only worsen and possibly become fatal if not quickly treated by medical professionals. These emergency procedures will often mean the difference between life and death for a patient. However, emergency medical procedures and future rehabilitative care will often cost thousands of dollars, money that a person is not prepared to spend and that will not be fully covered by insurance providers.

If your catastrophic injuries are the result of an accident that another person or group caused through negligent or reckless actions, you have the right as a Maryland resident to seek compensation. By proving fault in a claim or lawsuit, the at-fault party will be required to provide you with payments covering physical and financial harm as well as future medical procedures. With this help, you can avoid life-altering debt and recuperate as much as is physically possible.
