Any injury can be grounds for an insurance claim or lawsuit. However, catastrophic injuries can be especially devastating on your finances and personal life. Damages from an insurance claim or lawsuit can help alleviate that burden.
A catastrophic injury lawyer, like the ones on our team, focuses on addressing every consequence of your accident, from medical bills to mental health.
The Full Scope of Catastrophic Injury Compensation
The name says it all – catastrophic injuries have catastrophic consequences for victims like you. Your compensation should be proportionate to what you suffered. That includes financial losses as well as personal ones.
Moreover, your damages should be well-rounded, covering:
- Medical costs
- Lost income
- Future loss of earning capacity
- Loss of limb
- Loss of organ function
- Loss of independence
- Loss of consortium
- Pain and suffering
- Wrongful death
Injuries of this caliber often have lifelong ramifications. Your damages should acknowledge and reflect the long-term consequences. Insurance companies may want to pay out as quickly as possible. They could do this even for serious injuries, without waiting for you to reach your maximum medical improvement. You have a right to wait to understand the full extent of your injuries before agreeing to a settlement.
This accident could have changed your life. At Bogin, Munns & Munns, we want to give you the support you need to navigate those changes. The primary reason for financial compensation would be the trauma of experiencing this shift in the first place. We recognize your pain and will fight for the responsible party to recognize it as well.
When the Bills are Higher, the Compensation Should Match
Treating and living with catastrophic injuries is a significant financial burden. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) reports an important statistic. Inpatient stays for traumatic brain injuries (TBI) are 74 percent more expensive than those without a TBI. That’s just the hospitalization, not the full recovery.
Catastrophic injuries include spine and brain injuries, lost limbs, burns, and organ damage. These require serious medical invention.
Costs eligible for reimbursement and future payment include:
- Emergency visits
- Specialist consultations
- Skin grafts
- Medical equipment
- At-home care
- Rehabilitation costs
- Home or car changes
Unique therapies, expensive medication, and wheelchairs or prosthetics all qualify you for damages. Even the day-to-day costs of living with your injuries can be included in your settlement, such as installing equipment to make getting in and out of your car or home easier. Damages are both personal and practical; talk to us about both aspects.

How We Work for You
Yet, in the end, the fundamental cause isn’t the truck, the fall, the motorcycle crash, or the faulty product, but the human choices that led to those accidents. You are a victim of negligence. Regardless of the scenario, someone made a careless decision, and you suffered serious consequences.

We Can Help Determine who You are Up Against
Catastrophic injuries can result from confusing accidents, such as a chaotic, multi-car collision or a sudden fall. Knowing who to hold accountable helps provide an outlet for closure and damages.
However, you already know that serious injuries cost serious money. You may discover that one party is not capable of paying for all of your compensation, though. For example, the driver who struck you may not have been insured. A negligent property owner may not have enough insurance to cover all of your expenses, either.
Investigating more than one possible liable party can provide alternate avenues for damages. Accidents are often a culmination of multiple factors, and that may open up the possibility for multiple negligent individuals or companies. Depending on the type of accident you suffered, we can investigate:
- Trucking companies
- Property owners
We Help You Stay Within the Timelines That Limit Your Case
In the midst of this, we remain mindful of the statute of limitations for your case. In Florida, the timeline varies depending on the type of accident, as well as particulars of your unique scenario.
Florida Statutes § 95.11 states that personal injury and product liability victims typically have four years to file. Medical malpractice requires filing within two years of the injury or discovery of the injury. We will go over this during your free consultation.
