Is Your Injury Catastrophic?

Some injuries are serious and others rise to the level of catastrophic. One thing is certain — the medical costs and economic income loss associated with catastrophic injuries can be extreme. If you or a loved one suffers from severe, permanent injuries caused by someone else’s negligence, find out how a catastrophic injury attorney in Florida can help.

Florida statutes go into extensive detail defining catastrophic injuries as “a permanent impairment constituted by:

  • Spinal cord injury involving severe paralysis of an arm, a leg or the trunk
  • Amputation of an arm, hand, foot or leg involving effective  loss of use of that appendage
  • Severe brain or closed head injury as evidenced by:
    • Severe sensory or motor disturbances
    • Severe complex integrated disturbances of cerebral function
    • Severe episodic neurological disorders
    • Other severe brain or closed-head injury conditions at least as severe in nature as the above
    • Second or third degree burns of 25 percent or more of the total body surface or third degree burns of five percent or more of the face and hands
    • Blindness involving complete vision loss
    • Loss of reproductive organs that affect  the ability to procreate
