Los Angeles Catastrophic Injury Lawyers

Here to Help When the Future Looks Uncertain

You can be left in dire straights after suffering a life-changing injury. But don’t expect an insurance company to suddenly become sympathetic just because you were catastrophically injured. If anything, insurance companies are more likely to push back and reject your catastrophic injury claim because it is more expensive than the average personal injury case.

At KJT Law Group, we’ve designed our legal team and law firm to effectively handle catastrophic injury cases for clients in need. When an insurance company sees our name on a claim, they know they have to sit up straight and prepare for a legal fight because we don’t tire, and we don’t back down. If you want aggressive representation that understands what’s at stake for your catastrophic injury case in Los Angeles, then dial (818) 873-0181 right now.

What is a Catastrophic Injury?

Every injury is serious when you are the person who suffers it and due to someone else’s negligence. Not all injuries are ‘catastrophic,’ though, and the difference in definition could be important for your claim.

Two definitions for catastrophic injuries are widely accepted:

  • Medical: A catastrophic injury is an injury that causes immediate life-threatening harm or that will likely never fully heal.
  • Legal: A catastrophic injury is an injury that will never fully heal after the claimant reaches their maximum medical improvement (MMI); that causes the claimant difficulty in finding and holding gainful employment; and/or, that causes permanent, significant, and noticeable disfiguration.

Properly identifying and defining your injury as catastrophic is important. If there is no medical record that agrees that your injury is catastrophic, and not just serious, then it will be more difficult to justify the large compensation amount that you are probably owed. Our Los Angeles catastrophic injury lawyers can network with medical experts who can properly assess your injury and give a prognosis about how it will likely affect your life going forward.

Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

Some of the most common and drastic catastrophic injuries are:

  • Traumatic brain injuries: A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is any damage to the brain that harms or impairs the victim. Brain tissue is slow to heal, often slower than the rate that an injury naturally worsens with time, so most TBIs are permanent.
  • Spinal cord injury: Damage to the spinal cord can cause immediate paralysis or the loss of limb and/or organ control. More body parts will experience partial or total paralysis the higher the injury occurs along the spinal cord. Harm to the cervical vertebrae can cause quadriplegia, for example, but harm to the lumbar vertebrae can cause paraplegia.
  • Amputations: The loss of a limb or digit is life-changing and permanent. Even with modern prosthetics, an amputee will need to readjust to their new “normal.” Also, effective prosthetics can be expensive. We can fight to make sure you don’t pay for such important medical technology out-of-pocket.
  • Severe burns and scarring: A third-degree burn, exposure to a caustic substance, or a severe laceration can cause a permanent scar. If the scar is in a visible area like the head, face, and hands, then it could make you feel self-conscious, even if you understand that no one is judging you. A catastrophic injury claim for permanent disfigurements can seek damages that acknowledge the psychological harm that can be inflicted in these specific injury cases.

Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are often caused in these accidents and incidents:
