Catastrophic Injury Claims in Louisiana 

Catastrophic injuries are severe, life-altering injuries that can permanently change the course of your life. Due to the severity of these injuries, many people who suffer them are confined to a wheelchair, bed, or hospital for the rest of their lives. Catastrophic injuries include brain injuries, amputations, burns, and other debilitating injuries that require extensive medical care and rehabilitation.

When you suffer a catastrophic injury, you may face thousands of dollars in medical bills and other expenses. You may have missed days, weeks, or even months of work, which can result in a significant loss of income. You may have to deal with a permanent disability or an ongoing physical or mental illness.

What Is Considered a "Catastrophic Injury?"

A catastrophic injury is one that is so severe, it leads to partial or total, temporary or permanent disability. 

Some examples of catastrophic injuries include: 

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries 
  • Paralysis 
  • Severe burns 
  • Permanent scarring or disfigurement
  • Multiple fractures 
  • Amputation 
  • Severe soft tissue damage
  • Damage to internal organs 

Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries 

All types of accidents and traumatic incidents can lead to catastrophic injuries. 

Some of the most common causes include: 

To have a catastrophic injury case, you must prove that someone else was at fault for the incident that led to your injury (or your loved one’s injury, if filing on their behalf). The at-fault party can be another person, or it can be a company, a manufacturer, a government agency, or some other entity. 

How Long Do You Have to File a Catastrophic Injury Lawsuit? 

In Louisiana, the statute of limitations on most personal injury cases—including those involving catastrophic injuries—is one year. This means you have one year from the date on which you or your loved one was injured to file your lawsuit. If you miss the filing deadline, you could lose your right to recover compensation for your injury-related damages, such as medical expenses, future care costs, lost income/wages, lost earning ability, and pain and suffering.

Kervin, the sooner we can begin putting together a powerful case based on the unique details of your situation.
