Catastrophic Injury Lawyer Statistics

 

Catastrophic injuries are those that have serious, long-term consequences. Unlike less severe injuries, catastrophic injuries can result in permanent disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, and paralysis. These injuries often occur in severe motor vehicle crashes, truck accidents, and vehicle versus pedestrian incidents.

 

According to the National Safety Council (NSC), in 2022, medically consulted injuries in motor vehicle incidents totaled 5.2 million. The total motor vehicle injury costs were estimated at a staggering $481.2 billion, including wage and productivity losses, medical expenses, administrative expenses, motor vehicle property damage, and employer costs. These statistics highlight the severity and financial burden of motor vehicle accidents, many of which result in catastrophic injuries.

 

What Is A Catastrophic Injury?

 

Catastrophic injuries can happen in various situations, but certain scenarios pose a higher risk. Understanding these risks can help recognize potential dangers and take preventive measures. While accidents are often unpredictable, knowing the common causes can provide some insight into how to stay safer. Here are the most significant causes of catastrophic injuries:

 

  • Car Accidents - One of the most common causes of catastrophic injuries. Modern SUVs and pick-up trucks, which are large and powerful, contribute significantly to the severity of these accidents.

  • Truck Accidents—Accidents involving big rigs or eighteen-wheelers often result in catastrophic injuries, especially for occupants of smaller vehicles. Factors such as driver fatigue exacerbate the risk, making these collisions particularly dangerous.

  • Motorcycle Accidents - Due to their small size and lack of protective barriers, motorcycles are frequently involved in accidents that cause catastrophic injuries. Motorcyclists are especially vulnerable to serious harm on the road.

  • Bus Accidents - When buses are involved in crashes, the consequences can be severe. Buses often carry many passengers not wearing seatbelts, leading to more people in-danger.

  • Bicycle Accidents - Bicyclists are at-risk for injuries because they usually are sharing the roadway with larger, motorized vehicles. And if you're not wearing a helmet, these incidents can be devastating.

  • Pedestrian Accidents - Pedestrians face the brunt force of accidents because they are without any form of protection. Drivers wear seatbelts while inside a metal vehicle. Bicyclists have helmets and bus riders are also inside a transportation vessel. Pedestrians have none of those protections and are extremely vulnerable.

Long-Term Physical & Emotional Pain

 

Catastrophic injuries are not just physically devastating but also emotionally and financially draining. The outcome of such injuries changes the lives of victims and their families forever. Permanent disabilities can lead to a lifetime of medical care, rehabilitation, and the need for continuous support. The emotional toll can be equally overwhelming, with victims and their families grappling with the new reality and the challenges it brings.

 

Choosing the right catastrophic injury lawyer can make a significant difference in the outcome of your case. You need a personal injury law firm that combines compassion with a proven track record of success. Someone that understands the emotional and physical pain caused by catastrophic injuries, and isn't afraid to take on large insurance companies.
