Catastrophic injuries, especially those that have serious effects on cognitive or physical ability, or that significantly alter someone's appearance, are unquestionably devastating.
These types of injuries can also often be quite complex.
Soft-tissue injuries, to give an example, can be incredibly difficult to diagnose. They may produce physical problems and symptoms that are not immediately apparent. Brain and head injuries, too, often show up with subtle signs and must be expertly assessed and diagnosed.
Many insurance adjusters know this and try to take advantage by claiming that an injury's extent is not nearly as severe as it actually is.
In almost any instance when someone is negligent, a catastrophic injury becomes a real possibility. These types of injuries often result from automobile accidents, falls, sports accidents or violent acts. Even if you are partially to blame for an injury, Connecticut's comparative negligence and contributory negligence laws may allow you to recover a portion of the associated expenses.
That said, an experienced legal team is almost always the essential ingredient in maximizing compensation.
