Accidents that cause injury and distress can happen to anyone. Unfortunately, an accident can have a profound and negative impact on your quality of life; and on the wellbeing of your family. This is particularly the case when the injuries are catastrophic.
If you have been injured because of someone’s negligence or carelessness, and if your injuries have left you in a state of permanent disability or lifelong impairment, then you are entitled to claim catastrophic injury compensation.
Catastrophic injury compensation can help you regain some control over your future by covering the ongoing and substantial costs associated with treatment and care. As time limits for seeking compensation apply, it is important that you speak to a compensation lawyer as soon as possible.
The team at Wyatts Compensation Lawyers understands the financial, physical, practical and emotional challenges that people with catastrophic injuries face. That is why we offer you a personalised and attentive service: to help alleviate the burdens associated with claiming catastrophic injury compensation and to offer highly-skilled legal support so that together we can attain the outcome you deserve. We understand your distress, and with attentive care, kindness and compassion, we are here to help.
An injury is catastrophic when the sufferer is permanently impaired or disabled. In some cases, a catastrophic injury can shorten a person’s life. Catastrophic injuries can prevent people from working, and can have long-term consequences for the victim’s health and quality-of-life. Not only does a catastrophic injury affect the primary victim, but it can also have a profound impact on their loved ones, who may be required to provide financial, physical and emotional support. Catastrophic injuries involve substantial medical treatment; therefore, it is important that victims are offered the best opportunity to seek compensation.
Catastrophic injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Spinal cord injuries and neurological disorders that result in paralysis, quadriplegia, paraplegia and tetraplegia
- Serious head trauma
- Major brain injuries
- Loss of limbs
- Severe burns
- Multiple bone fractures
- Loss of sight or hearing
We understand the challenges faced by those with catastrophic injuries, and we are committed to offering our clients a personalised and attentive service. Talk to one of our lawyers today to start the process of making a catastrophic injury compensation claim. We will also discuss with you whether you qualify to claim motor vehicle accident compensation, medical negligence compensation, workers compensation, public liability compensation, or another form of personal injury compensation.
To determine if you are eligible to claim compensation for a catastrophic injury, it is vital that you seek legal advice. Broadly, catastrophic injury compensation claims require that:
- The person or business whose actions resulted in the injury was careless or negligent
- There is evidence that you have suffered as a result of someone else’s negligence
- Your injuries will continue to cause impairment and suffering into the foreseeable future

We will discuss your best options, ensuring that you receive the compensation you deserve. Our lawyers are highly experienced in seeking personal injury compensation, including car accident compensation, medical negligence compensation, Workers Compensation, and public liability compensation.
