Billions of Dollars in Verdicts & Settlements

Catastrophic injuries are a legal designation that describes any injury that lowers a person’s mobility or cognitive abilities. Spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries, amputation, paralysis, third-degree burns, and other life-altering injuries are considered catastrophic because they fundamentally shift your ability to be self-reliant. Arnold & Itkin LLP knows that dealing with severe injuries is difficult.

Catastrophic injuries not only alter your life permanently, but can result in millions in medical expenses and future care. Most people cannot afford to accommodate their own injuries and maintain the same quality of life. Our firm fights for the recovery you need for the rest of your life, helping you get the care and resources you need.

The True Cost of a

Catastrophic Injury

Though these kinds of injuries can vary, the one thing they have in common is the profound impact they have on the victim’s life and even the lives of the victim’s loved ones. A victim’s family may need to seek compensation for the victim’s treatment and also for lost wages due to needing to assist their loved one. For amputation or paralysis, the long-term costs include equipment to accommodate the injury. Prosthetics cost thousands of dollars, and could still result in lost earning capacity.

Some injuries require extensive home renovation, or a new type of home entirely.

Some of the Catastrophic Injuries

We Can Help Our Clients With
  • Blunt Force Trauma

    These injuries are characterized by the force impact of an object to a specific region of the body. One of the most common places these occur is to the head.

  • Vision Loss & Eye Injuries

    Damage done to the eye is among the most common of workplace injuries. These are catastrophic because they often lead to permanent vision disabilities.

  • Acoustic Trauma

    These refer to injuries which cause hearing damage. Just as with vision damage, these are often life-altering, and the damage can be permanent.

  • Neck / Back Injuries

    These injuries are suffered by at least one million employees each year. Some of these are catastrophic enough to leave permanent damage or even paralysis.

  • Neurologic Injuries

    These injuries could possibly affect the entire neurological system, causing reasoning disabilities and many other debilitations.

  • Burns, Scarring & Disfigurement

    Burns are not only physically damaging, but they can also leave a permanent, emotional impact.

  • Spinal Cord Injuries

    Injuries to the spinal cord or vertebrae have the potential to cause partial limb dysfunction or even complete paralysis.
