Catastrophic Personal Injury Attorneys in Omaha

Severe and Life-Altering Injuries

Sustaining any type of injury is difficult, but the effects of a very serious injury far surpass physical pain. These types of injuries are commonly referred to as catastrophic injuries and, though there is no official definition, they refer to severe injuries that require long-term treatment, cause much pain and suffering and require a long recovery. The emotional, physical and financial hardships that follow catastrophic injuries can be devastating to a victim's lifestyle, job, relationships, and even independence. Oftentimes, catastrophically injured victims can become partially or totally disabled. Even with medical insurance, the cost of medical treatment, hospitalization, rehabilitation, and other care, can jump to inordinate amounts. And, without being able to work, the victim and their family can easily fall into debt.

If you've become permanently disabled as a result of your injury, medical costs can last for the rest of your life.

Types of Catastrophic Injuries

The type of catastrophic injury suffered is dependent on the event that caused it, but, nonetheless, catastrophic injuries are always severe. Some of the catastrophic injuries that may result in such consequences include:

All of these injuries have the potential to result in undue medical costs compounded over time from medical treatment, hospital stays, prescription medication, surgeries, at-home care, rehabilitation, medical equipment, and physician visits. Unfortunately, insurance will only get you so far before you have to start paying for your treatment and care out of pocket. If you've become permanently disabled as a result of your injury, medical costs can last for the rest of your life. Without being able to earn a living, this can create severe financial hardship for the victim and their family.

Liability in Catastrophic Injury Cases

If you or a loved one were catastrophically injured by another's negligence or wrongdoing, you have the right to hold the at-fault party responsible for the resulting losses and damages. Whether your injury was caused by a distracted driver, a fatigued truck operator, an airplane defect accident, or violence, you can pursue compensation through legal action. An experienced Nebraska injury attorney can help you file a valid claim. Though money cannot reverse a catastrophic injury, it can get victims the care they need to live with dignity and independence.

Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

Because the term "catastrophic injury" can refer to a number of serious injuries, the causes for those injuries also vary. Catastrophic injuries may be caused by:

  • Big rig accidents;
  • Car accidents;
  • Defective products or equipment;
  • Construction on other job site accidents;
  • Toxic exposure or inhalation;
  • Train or railroad accidents;
  • Dangerous drugs;
  • Aviation accidents; and
  • Serious falls.
