Catastrophic injuries are those that are life-threatening and/or result in severe short- or long-term disability. Types of catastrophic injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries. If a worker hits their head, or if the skull and brain are penetrated with an object, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) may result. TBIs can have long-term or permanent effects, including effects related to cognition, sensation, and emotion.
- Burn injuries. Burn injuries can be extremely severe, painful, and even life-threatening. Third- and fourth-degree burns can result in permanent disfigurement and disability.
- Amputation injuries. Losing a limb is both extremely emotional and permanently disabling. Loss of a limb or part of a limb–such as a finger or a toe–may result from an accident that severs the limb, or an accident that crushes the limb beyond repair, resulting in the necessity of medical amputation.
- Spinal cord injuries. The spinal cord is essential for the communication between the brain and the rest of the body; if the spinal cord is injured, the ability for the brain to communicate is impaired. The result: permanent partial or complete paralysis from the site of the injury downwards.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits Available
If you suffer a catastrophic injury as a result of a workplace accident, our Sarasota workers’ compensation lawyers will aggressively advocate for your right to compensation. By filing a workers’ compensation claim, you can seek benefits for all of your necessary and reasonable medical expenses, as well as benefits for temporary or permanent total disability. If you have suffered a catastrophic injury, you may never be able to work again. We’ll fight hard for your right to recover financial damage to compensate you for this reality.
A workers’ compensation insurance adjuster may not be eager to pay you your full claim amount; instead, the adjuster may be more interested in saving the insurance company money. Our lawyers will work hard to negotiate your claim and ensure that you get paid what you deserve.
