Being involved in a car accident is an unfortunate fact of life for many people. Thousands of individuals are in auto accidents every year in Chicago. Some are able to walk away with only minor injuries. However, others experience catastrophic injuries that result in rehabilitation and medical bills that last a lifetime.
Catastrophic injury means “consequences of an injury that permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work.”
No one expects to be tragically injured. You go about life, striving for success and happiness. Joyous moments with family, pleasurable fun outdoors, and living life to its fullest is something everyone desires. But what if your peaceful and pleasant life is dramatically overturned by a shocking injury, caused by someone else, disrupting your quality of life and permanently disabling you? You need a lawyer on your side, one who will work hard to make sure you’re compensated for your losses.
At Willens Law Offices we will help you and your family receive the benefits you need and deserve to move forward with your life. Even though monetary compensation cannot undo your injuries or take the pain away, it can help you and your family cope with many of the day-to-day burdens that you may be facing as a result of your catastrophic injury.
What is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is defined as an injury that results in serious, permanent effects on the victim. A catastrophic injury often affects the spine, spinal cord, or brain and usually happens suddenly, without any warning.
Catastrophic injuries often put a huge burden on the victim’s family because of the serious, long-term effects. The injured person may need constant assistance or supervision for the rest of their life. In addition, the expense of a lifetime of rehabilitation and medical bills can add serious financial stress on a family.
Types of Catastrophic Injuries
A catastrophic injury can be caused by a number of circumstances, but many are often the result of a serious car accident. Some of the most common types of catastrophic injuries include:
- Serious head injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Accidental amputation
- Eye injury
- Severe internal bleeding
- Serious neck injury
- Severe burns
- Damage to organs
If you or a loved one have suffered any type of catastrophic injury in a Chicago car accident due to another’s negligence, you have the right to seek compensation.

Restitution for financial damages
When you or a loved one are a victim of a catastrophic injury, employment is lost and suddenly the medical bills start to pile up. The victim can no longer support themselves and suddenly the dream of a peaceful life evaporates. The hope for quality of life dims as you realize you can no longer perform basic tasks such as eating and grooming. While recovering compensation to cover future medical expenses and lost earnings cannot undo the physical and emotional damage wrought by a serious accident, it can protect the victim and their family from financial ruin due to the high cost of long-term medical care.

There are generally large financial implications following a catastrophic injury. For this reason, one of the most important aspects of such a claim is determining it’s value.
