Catastrophic Injuries

Lake Charles Catastrophic Injury Lawyers

Compassionate, Client-Focused Representation

While all injuries present a number of challenges for victims and their loved ones, some injuries are so severe, they completely alter the victim’s way of life. In legal terms, these are known as “catastrophic injuries.” Such injuries often come with massive medical bills, long-term treatment and care, partial or total disability, and immense pain and suffering.

At Hinch & Associates PLC, we believe that victims of negligence should be compensated for their pain and suffering and that perpetuators of such negligence should be held liable. Whether you suffered catastrophic injuries in an ATV accident or your loved one was severely disabled after being involved in a pedestrian accident, our Lake Charles catastrophic injury lawyers can help.

Give us a call at (337) 222-3434 or contact us online to request a free consultation. We serve all of the Lake Charles Metropolitan Area.

Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

There is no absolute definition of a catastrophic injury, but they are generally considered to be any injury that has a profound and/or lasting effect on the victim. Catastrophic injuries typically prevent victims from obtaining any form of gainful employment, either on a temporary or permanent basis.

Some fairly common examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Amputation
  • Severe burns
  • Loss of vision/hearing
  • Major broken bones
  • Internal organ damage
  • Soft tissue injuries
  • Neck, back, and shoulder injuries

Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries can occur in myriad ways. Far too often, they are the result of another person or party’s negligence. When this is the case, victims are entitled to financial compensation for their damages, such as medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, emotional distress, and more.

Some of the most common causes of catastrophic injuries include:

Regardless of how an accident occurs, if it was the result of another person, company, or entity’s negligence, victims can take legal action against the at-fault party and seek fair compensation for their damages.
