Serious injuries can be devastating, often requiring months of intensive medical treatments and therapy to overcome. Conversely, many people never fully recover from catastrophic injuries.

Catastrophic injuries usually leave a person with such profound bodily damage that they suffer life-long consequences. In many cases, their injures lead to temporary or permanent disability. According to Social Security Disability Insurance statistics, 1 out of 4 20-year-olds will become disabled before reaching retirement age.

The Boston catastrophic injury attorneys of Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C. have helped numerous injury victims recover the damages they deserve. If you or a loved one has suffered a life-altering injury due to a careless act, our highly sought personal injury lawyers have the skills and resources to hold negligent parties accountable.

How Catastrophic Injuries Are Defined Under the Law

Catastrophic injuries are typically defined by their ability to disrupt lives in profound and permanent ways. While Massachusetts does not have a clearly defined distinction of “catastrophic injury,” other states have defined the term as permanent impairment.

For example, the following injuries are considered particularly traumatic to the body and often leave the sufferer with permanent damage:

Legal Representation for Spinal, Back, and Neck Injuries

Back and neck injuries are two of the most common injuries that people sustain as a result of an accident. Serious injuries can cause chronic pain, limit accident victims’ mobility, and may even require costly surgery. Common causes of back and neck injuries include auto accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, and construction accidents.

There are few injuries more frightening and potentially debilitating than back and spinal cord injuries. Such injuries can cause paraplegia, quadriplegia, partial loss of movement, and other motor functioning challenges. Spinal cord damage may be caused by a variety of accidents, including auto accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, and construction site accidents. People who have suffered serious injuries may require a number of costly surgeries and ongoing medical care as well as daily care services.

Unfortunately, people who do not speak with an attorney quickly after an accident may make statements to an insurance adjuster that may adversely affect their rights. For aggressive representation, contact our experienced catastrophic injury team in Boston. We can help if you have sustained a back or neck injury, including:

  • Herniated Discs
  • Slipped Discs
  • Lower Back Injury
  • Broken Neck
  • Compression Fractures

Strong Representation for All Types of Burns

If you or a loved one has suffered a burn injury, then you are aware that they are among the most painful injuries. We are more than familiar with this type of trauma and the unique treatments that one would have to endure, as well as not only the debilitating pain but the emotional stressors connected with living your life as a burn victim. Unfortunately, burns can occur in a myriad of ways and our firm has a particular interest in helping individuals who have suffered such a devastating loss.

  • Construction, Industrial, and Manufacturing Accidents

  • Exposure to Chemicals
  • Explosions

Crush Injuries Are Life-Changing

Crush injuries and amputations are life-changing. Very few of us notice on a daily basis how lucky we are to be able to pick up a cup of coffee, take change off a table, button our shirts, and/or tie our shoes. These simple, mundane, daily tasks are often taken for granted until someone suffers a crush injury or one that requires amputation. These unfortunate souls have to completely adapt to a new normal. These cases tend to be among the most difficult for plaintiffs to cope with as they enter their new life. If you or someone else have suffered such a catastrophic blow, we would be honored to represent you in moving forward against the responsible party.

What Makes Catastrophic Injury Claims Unique Compared to Other Personal Injury Claims?

At Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C., our skilled catastrophic injury lawyers in Boston understand the long repercussions associated with injuries of this magnitude. Catastrophic injury claims differ from typical personal injury claims by;

  • The financial impact is exponentially higher
    • Injury victims suffer slow and painful recoveries and must adjust to permanent impairments. Medical costs are significantly higher due to:
      • Multiple surgeries and procedures
      • Intensive inpatient therapy
      • Accommodative changes or devices
      • In-home and daily living assistance
      • Loss of income and future wages
  • The injuries have life-long consequences
    • Catastrophic injuries are characteristically associated with;
      • Physical and cognitive deficits, including impaired memory and limited mobility
      • Permanent disfigurement, including severe scarring
      • Loss of function or senses
      • disability
  • Catastrophic injury claims are far more complex
    • Most challenges are due to the high financial cost associated with life-long medical care.
      • Responsible parties, including insurance companies and corporations, seek to minimize any payouts. Serious injury victims may face a team of defense lawyers to recover the compensation they deserve.
      • Catastrophic injuries are also under a tremendous amount of medical scrutiny. Experts, medical records, and treating physicians will undergo intense examination.
      • Due to the value of catastrophic injury cases, there is a greater chance injury victims will have to prove their case at trial.

Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C. are prepared to help victims of catastrophic injuries attain the medical treatment and future security they need to move on with their lives.
