What Is Considered To Be A Catastrophic Injury?
According to 42 U.S.C. § 3796b, a catastrophic injury refers to an injury whose direct and proximate consequences permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work. This means that if you suffered an injury on the job that prevents you from accomplishing work in the future, you may have grounds to file a catastrophic injury claim against your employer or a third party who is liable for your injuries.
Catastrophic Workers’ Compensation Settlements
A catastrophic injury is generally classified as a cognitive, physical or spinal cord injury. These serious injuries often require a lifetime of medical service. The California workers’ compensation program is designed to help individuals facing these expenses to receive the medical care they need. Don’t let your claim get denied when you need it most, simply because you did not have adequate representation.
- Physical Injury: These types of injuries include fractures, burn injuries, amputation, organ damage and damages to orthopedic functions or tissue.
- Spinal Cord Injury: These types of injuries affect the spinal cord, which creates permanent mobility issues for those who survive this injury.
