What are catastrophic injuries?
A catastrophic injury is a severe and sudden injury causing the loss of limbs, compromised brain function, severely reduced mobility and/or loss of eyesight. If you have been in a car accident, “œcatastrophic impairment” has a very specific definition under the insurance Act of Ontario. These injuries can have very serious long-term effects on a person’s well-being, ability to work and quality of life. They not only put a strain on the victim but also the family members who may be required to provide financial and emotional assistance. Catastrophic injuries can leave victims with pain, suffering, and large rehabilitation and health care costs. If the injury was caused by the negligent actions of a person or group of people, then you must file a personal injury claim with the assistance of an experienced lawyer.
