Catastrophic Personal Injury is a broad, blanket term that covers many types of cases. Anytime a person is injured due to the negligence or wrongful act of another, it can be described as a "personal injury."
These cases do not fall neatly into the other categories (such as medical malpractice or automobile collisions), but we work closely with subject matter expert witnesses to gain a deep understanding of engineering, design, and safety principles, in order to advocate for our clients in any case where they were injured because of negligence.
These types of cases can overlap with other categories, but our lawyers have handled catastrophic personal injury cases stemming from a wide variety of negligent acts. Some examples include cases arising from injuries suffered in the following circumstances:
- Unsafe practices in recreational activities, like white-water rafting and ziplining
- Negligent design of a car racetrack
- Unsafe practices at a major outdoor concert venue
- Negligent actions creating “domino” collapse of shelving in a warehouse facility
- Electrical/wiring defects
- Construction defects and safety violations
- Failure to provide proper security
- Injuries caused by animals
If you think that the unsafe practices or negligence of another person or corporation caused your injury, call us to discuss whether you have a case.
