What is a catastrophic injury?
Catastrophic injuries are those that cause severe disability or other severe health problems. They interfere with someone’s life for an extended period. There is no short recovery. Several types of injuries can be classified as catastrophic injuries, including the following:
- Severe burns, such as third-degree burns that require major skin grafts and lead to severe disfigurement.
- Accidental amputation, such as losing a leg or arm in an accident.
- Spinal cord injuries, such as those that cause loss of movement and sensation in the arms and legs.
- Head injuries, including those that lead to memory loss or long-term comas
Catastrophic injuries often result in high medical costs, but mental and physical tolls are also high. These costs may lead you to seek compensation through a catastrophic injury case.

Compensation in a catastrophic injury case
The exact amount you can get in compensation in a catastrophic injury case will depend on what happened. For example, how severe were your injuries and who was responsible will impact the compensation amount. When you meet with an attorney, they can often estimate how much you may be able to recover in compensation in your case.
With this estimate, you can decide if it is worth it to continue to pursue your claim.
Catastrophic injury cases are similar to other personal injury cases. You may be able to recover compensation for various reasons, including your medical bills and the money you lost while you were unable to work. But you may also be able to recover more for your non-tangible losses.
For example, you may have experienced declines in your quality of life after the accident. You may have experienced profound emotional trauma and pain. You may be able to recover compensation for these losses as well.

How long do I have to file a catastrophic injury lawsuit?
Each state has statutes of limitations in place. And often, the clock starts ticking from the day of the accident. This time limit is the time you have to file a lawsuit.
In Kentucky, underKy. Rev. Stat. § 413.140(1), you usually have about one year from the accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. This time limit applies to catastrophic injury lawsuits. Because of this short time limit, it is helpful to seek out legal advice early so that you don’t miss the deadline for filing a lawsuit.
