What Is a Catastrophic Injury?

The most common catastrophic injuries that the Sevenish Law Firm, sees in our personal injury practice include:

These injuries are considered to be “catastrophic” because they typically result in death or a permanent and severe disability.

Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

We have found that the most common causes for catastrophic injuries include:

  • Car accidents – The violent nature of an auto accident impact can cause multiple fractures, brain injury and spinal cord damage.
  • Falls – Although a person of any age can suffer a disabling injury in a slip-and-fall accident, the concern is greater when the victim is an elderly person. Hip fractures, in particular, occur at a dangerously high rate among elderly nursing home residents.
  • Workplace accidents – Construction workers face a wide range of catastrophic injury risks on the job, including falling from ladders, scaffolds or other heights or suffering harm while using dangerous tools and equipment.

Seeking Compensation for Indiana Catastrophic Injury Victims

Catastrophic injury victims may require an overwhelming amount of medical care and treatment, including surgeries, lengthy physical rehabilitation, counseling and long-term assisted living care.

The related costs associated with a catastrophic injury can quickly rise into the millions of dollars when adding in lost earnings and the burdens that the injury can place on family members.

This is why it is crucial to work with an experienced attorney who knows how to investigate and manage the litigation of a catastrophic injury case.

With nearly three decades of experience as a personal injury lawyer in Indiana and a background as a police officer, attorney Randall “Randy” Sevenish is adept at seeking compensation for victims and their families.

If Sevenish Law Firm, takes on your case, we will:

  • Conduct a thorough investigation of how the injury occurred
  • Determine all parties who should be held responsible
  • Examine all medical records in the case to determine past losses
  • Work closely with experts to determine future losses that should be sought
  • Prepare a meticulously detailed written demand with state-of-the-art exhibits confirming medical and legal issues, a written legal basis and medical chronology of the facts and oftentimes a highly persuasive video documentary with professional narration
  • Negotiate with insurance companies for a full and fair settlement
  • Take a solid, well-prepared case to trial if needed, although the vast majority of all claims settle out of court
  • Carefully resolve any liens attached to your recovery and aggressively make every effort to negotiate those liens down. Of every dollar we convince a lienholder to reduce a lien, 100 percent of that reduction goes back to the client directly (a huge benefit to you) without additional attorney fees.

We will do so with the honesty, fairness and integrity that clients have come to expect from our attorneys and paralegals.
