A Catastrophic Injury Defined
Many accidents feel catastrophic for those involved. We know that there are approximately three million nonfatal car wrecks a year, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Fatal car wrecks will increase that number.
Aside from car accidents, people become injured for many other reasons. About 40 million people visit the emergency room a year, the CDC states. These emergency room visits may occur for various reasons, such as workplace accidents, sports injuries, and more.
So, just what is the difference between one of these types of accidents and a catastrophic one? A catastrophic injury is much more severe and consequential than other accidents. It brings long-lasting results to your life. In fact, it could bring life-changing consequences. You may suffer physical, mental, and emotional harm as well as property damage. Some of the injuries incurred from a catastrophic accident include:
- Burns and lacerations on an extensive part of the body
- A disabling condition because of the accident
- Organ sever damage or loss
- Limb loss
- Traumatic brain injury
- Shattered bones
Usually, these injuries only happen if you are in a catastrophic accident. Therefore, your injuries determine if the accident was, in fact, catastrophic. Your lawyer will make sure you do not have to suffer from the consequences of these injuries without fair financial compensation.
If you think you may have suffered a catastrophic injury, get in touch with a Crowley catastrophic injury lawyer. At the Laborde Earles Injury Lawyers, someone will be able to look at the details of your case to determine if it is a catastrophic accident or a personal injury case. Either way, you can get started with a claim without paying any fees. We work on a contingency basis. Contact our office at (337) 777-7777 for a free consultation.

Creating a Strong Case
Your lawyer will handle all the different tasks revolving around, making a strong case built on evidence. There are two main areas that your Crowley catastrophic injury lawyer will work to create a solid case for you. Let us look at them below:
First, your lawyer needs to establish that the other party was liable for the accident. That simply means that the person was responsible. The lawyer must gather evidence together that proves the other party was negligent or careless and that the negligence led directly to your injuries.
People in certain situations have what is legally referred to as a duty of care to other individuals. A duty of care means that the person has an obligation to ensure your reasonable safety. For example, if you are on business property, then the owner has a duty of care to you.
The second phase of establishing liability is proving the person breached that duty of care through negligence or carelessness.
Finally, the lawyer must prove that the accident directly caused the injuries.
To establish liability and prove the things mentioned above, your Crowley catastrophic injury lawyer will need to collect all the evidence to help prove your case. This service may include such things as:
- Eyewitness reports
- Police reports
- Medical records
- Income statements
- Photos of the aftermath
There might be other evidence the lawyer will collect when building your case, but these are some main ones.
