A catastrophic injury has the potential to leave someone disabled for an extended period of time or permanently, in serious cases. Because these injuries are so devastating, they could affect many aspects of an individual’s life, as well as the lives of their loved ones.

If you suffered a serious injury due to the negligent actions of another person, you should seek the legal guidance of a Pueblo catastrophic injury lawyer. A seasoned personal injury attorney could review your case, help you plan your path forward, and support you throughout the process.

What is a Catastrophic Injury?

Catastrophic injuries tend to be more serious in nature in that they could impact an individual’s life for a long time. These injuries are often those that permanently prevent someone from returning to work, or from being able to seek gainful employment. Additionally, these forms of significant bodily harm may be severe enough that an individual may no longer be able to provide for themselves.

The law allows people that suffer an injury or illness to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the alleged defendant and seek damages for their losses. In catastrophic injury cases, the losses someone sustains can be so severe that these situations often play out differently than others, especially in terms of damages.

In Pueblo, an attorney may review a catastrophic injury case and determine how much in damages a claimant may be entitled to based on the severity of their case.
Some characteristics that may determine damages in a case may include:

  • The permanence of the injuries
  • The length of treatment and recovery time
  • Permanent loss of quality of life
  • The extent of medical treatment, surgeries, and rehabilitation
  • The necessity of live-in care or long-term care assistance

Recovering Damages

Due to the severity of catastrophic injuries, damages are often a key element in the course of litigation. In some cases, a court may separate a trial into two, also known as a bifurcated trial. One trial may be set to determine liability, and the other may evaluate damages.

In Pueblo catastrophic injury cases, a lawyer may seek both economic and non-economic damages on behalf of an injured claimant. Economic damages compensate plaintiffs for monetary expenses such as medical bills, out-of-pocket expenses, and lost wages.

Alternatively, the court bases non-economic damages on the plaintiff’s emotional losses, such as pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life. Since non-economic damages can be heavily subjective and based on the severity of the injury, larger compensatory awards typically occur in these cases. Reach out to a dedicated lawyer for help with recovering damages.

“Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.”

I was uneasy about reaching out to a law firm after being in an accident that left me injured and my vehicle totaled. I don’t care for the idea of suing for what was very clearly an accident. However, after learning more about the overall process of working with a professional team to navigate the murky waters of the insurance world, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the experience wasn’t as gross as I’d originally felt about it. Everyone at Springs Law Group is very professional, provides quick responses, communicates with patience and kindness, and remained detail oriented the entire time.

Big thanks to Mr. Jake Kimbell and his team for their assistance with my case. He helped me through an incredibly challenging part of my life, and most importantly helped navigate through the convoluted legal channels of my case. I cannot thank him and his team enough for their support.

I never have a problem with getting a response when I need them – which is not the case with most other firms. They really truly care about each client. As a plus, they always have positive attitudes, which matters tremendously when you are in a stressful legal situation.
