Catastrophic injuries are generally defined as injuries that have life-altering effects, and they tend to include serious injuries like traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and other head injuries, spinal cord injuries, paralysis, amputations, and more. The damages associated with catastrophic injuries can be difficult to comprehend – much less to calculate.
If you’ve suffered a catastrophic injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, however, obtaining just compensation is critical to your ability to continue living your fullest life now and into the future. This is exactly why you shouldn’t proceed without the skilled legal counsel of a dedicated Lynnwood, Washington, catastrophic injury attorney in your corner.
A catastrophic injury can alter the course of your life in a moment’s time, and the associated physical, financial, and emotional damages can be astronomical. The basic categories of loss, however, generally include medical costs, lost earnings, and pain and suffering. Let’s take a closer look.
The medical bills you experience at the time of your accident and during its immediate aftermath are likely to be extensive, but if your injury is catastrophic, they won’t stop there. Catastrophic injuries are closely associated with secondary health complications and with ongoing health concerns that can lead to a lifetime of medical costs. Medical expenses often include:
Adequately assessing the full range of your medical expenses – including expected ongoing and future expenses – is critical to your ability to reach your most complete recovery and to live your fullest post-accident life.
After suffering a catastrophic injury, it may be a long time before you can return to any kind of work – if you’re able to return to work at all. In fact, you’re very likely to suffer considerable financial deficits related to your earning capacity. If your career plan and goals are cut short as a result of the catastrophic injury you’ve suffered, it can also lead to considerable emotional pain and suffering. Our careers play an important role in our lives, and if your career ends prematurely as a result of someone else’s negligence, it can be a devastating blow.
The emotional and physical pain and suffering that tends to accompany catastrophic injuries can be overwhelming. Facing a life that’s been forever altered as a result of someone else’s negligence is difficult to come to terms with and can lead to immense emotional stress and even to PTSD-like symptoms, which can include:
The emotional component of the damages associated with catastrophic injuries should not be overlooked or diminished.
The full range of physical, financial, and emotional damages associated with your catastrophic injury add up to a lot more than simply the sum of your associated bills. After suffering an injury of this magnitude, you must look to the future and anticipate your ongoing needs regarding medical care (for both your mental and physical health), any personal assistance you’ll require, and adaptations to your vehicle and/or home. This is known as your life-care plan, and it serves as an important tool that will help guide your long-term care delivery, including:
Your life-care plan will include both recommendations and cost projections for your future injury-related needs, which will also help guide your catastrophic injury claim.
A catastrophic injury can permanently alter the course of your life in an instant. If that injury was caused by another person’s negligence, obtaining just compensation can mean the difference between reaching your most-complete recovery and not.

I could not be more pleased with my and my family’s experience with Napier & George. It was such a relief to work with such a caring and compassionate law office. I have and will continue to recommend them to anyone in need of their excellent services. Thanks so much!
I highly recommend Napier & George for handling injury cases related to an auto accident. Angela George and her staff are effective, professional, timely and caring. They have represented me on two different occasions and both times received top-tier settlements on my behalf.
The extraordinary personal attention that the attorneys gave to every detail was beyond my expectation. I was contacted often and explained what was being done and why. The settlement outcome was fantastic.
It was great hearing from multiple people in the firm, believe I talked to both partners during the process. Never found myself waiting for any information, got updates when I wanted them. Felt like the entire team was involved in the process, no matter what size the case is! Appreciate the way the final explanation letter spelled everything out. Thank you for that!!
Napier & George (and their assistants) were very communicative, detailed in their explanations and answered all our questions, putting our minds at ease during this entire process. We gratefully let them take control of the process, and all we can say is “we wish we would’ve hired them sooner!”
I was surprisingly satisfied – They were great – Easy to talk to, get a hold of, and understand. I would use no one else.
Excellent throughout the entire process. Very personable. Everyone was very helpful. I believe the firm achieved the best outcome for my situation. My results are very helpful and pleasing! The experience and knowledge David & Angela have in the industry is priceless! Thanks again!
Everyone was so great at answering all my questions & guiding me through the process. I did not need to figure things out on my own, I was informed in detail what to do, what was needed & what to expect & to continue focusing on recovering & to leave the rest to the office to handle. Thank you so much!
The firm itself is wonderful. The whole process was seamless from the consultation to the settlement check. The communication was more than enough and I felt like I was apart of the process without the pressure of dealing with it.
The Napier & George team went above and beyond my expectations to get my case settled. They got me a maximum top dollar settlement. I appreciate the effort by the team. I highly recommend!
The firm is super friendly and kind, I appreciate the updates every month. Thank you for helping me get my case resolved. You took so much off of my shoulders. I’m glad I had a great team working beside me every step of the way, the main thing I had to focus on was getting better after my motor vehicle collision. Great communication and respect for my situation. I am so grateful and blessed that you were helping me!
