Catastrophic Injuries

Kent Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

Representing Victims of Severe Bodily Injury & Their Loved Ones

While all injuries can be devastating, some injuries affect every aspect of the victim’s life. When an injury is so severe that it affects the victim’s ability to return to work—or obtain any form of gainful employment—and prevents him/her from returning to his/her normal life, it is considered catastrophic.

At Dore Law Group, PLLC, we have represented many clients who suffered catastrophic injuries or whose loved ones were severely injured due to the careless or reckless actions of someone else. We understand the unique concerns and factors present in these types of cases. Our Kent catastrophic injury lawyer has over 25 years of legal experience and has secured millions on behalf of his clients; he is ready to fight for the maximum compensation you or your loved one deserves.

If you or someone you care about is the victim of a catastrophic bodily injury, contact Dore Law Group, PLLC at (253) 236-3888 to learn how we can help. Your initial consultation is free.

What Is a Catastrophic Injury?

As previously mentioned, catastrophic injuries are those that are so severe, they prevent the victim from returning to his or her normal life. This may include things like returning to work, living on their own, and/or enjoying hobbies. Catastrophic injuries can be physical or cognitive in nature—or both. They may be permanent or temporary. In nearly all cases, however, they are debilitating.

Some examples of common catastrophic injuries include:

  • Neck and back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Amputation
  • Loss of hearing
  • Loss of vision
  • Broken bones
  • Severe burns

Note that this list is not exhaustive; any injury can be catastrophic if it drastically alters the victim’s everyday quality of life.

Special Considerations in Catastrophic Injury Cases

Because these types of injuries are so severe, victims often face a number of unique challenges. They need compensation that not only accounts for their immediate needs—such as the cost of emergency medical treatment and lost wages—but also compensation for future damages. Catastrophic injury victims face a lifetime of ongoing medical treatment, such as physical and/or cognitive rehabilitation therapy. They may be unable to work at their previous capacity or at all. They may require constant, around-the-clock care and in-home caregivers. All of this can quickly add up, making the lifetime cost of a catastrophic injury exorbitant. And, of course, this does not even take into account the immense physical and emotional suffering that accompanies life-altering injuries.

Additionally, the family members and loved ones of those catastrophically injured often face a number of new challenges. They may need to take time off work to care for their loved one or make modifications to a shared home, such as installing wheelchair ramps. Families of catastrophically injured victims also face significant mental and emotional distress.
