What is a catastrophic injury?
A catastrophic injury is a severe injury to the spinal cord, skull, or brain. These injuries often interfere with the victim’s ability to work, maintain relationships, and function in everyday society. Most catastrophic injuries include direct damage to the central nervous system.
When the brain or spinal cord is severely injured, it can lead to irreversible mental or physical handicaps. These include quadriplegia, paraplegia, total paralysis, or a coma.
A severe burn injury, amputation, devastating internal injury, or chemical exposure case may also qualify as a catastrophic injury.

Hiring the right attorney is IMPORTANT.
Catastrophic injury claims are much more difficult to prove than other types of personal injury cases because they involve large amounts of compensation. Therefore, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney who can provide you with aggressive representation throughout your case.
There are many reasons why hiring an experienced catastrophic injury attorney is crucial. However, getting the best one you can is key.
Some injury lawyers only handle cases where the injured person has a “soft” injury, like a broken leg or a minor cut that requires stitches. Our MVP Accident Attorneys are not afraid to take on the most challenging cases. We will put in the work that it takes to get you the compensation you deserve.
If you or a loved one have suffered a catastrophic injury in California, talk to our attorney.
Catastrophic injuries are life-altering events. Even after months or years of rehabilitation and treatment, you may not fully recover from your injuries. You may not be able to return to the job you had before. If your family member died from their injuries, you need help getting through this terrible loss.
We work on contingency fees. This means we do not get paid until you do. Our initial consultation is free of charge, so talking to our attorney about your situation can help you make an informed decision.
