Are catastrophic injury cases different than personal injury lawsuits?

Yes, filing and pursuing a catastrophic injury case is different from other kinds of personal injury cases. First, the impact on the victim’s life is more severe and involves much higher damages. This is due to the serious and on-going nature of such injuries and the necessary medical and recovery care.

Second, verdicts are generally higher in catastrophic injury cases. Higher compensation for medical, emotional and property injury and damages is necessary for a speedy recovery. Furthermore, catastrophic injuries often result in lifelong complications requiring lifelong compensation.
