What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
Attorney Roy Konray of Team Law in New Jersey has extensive experience helping NJ accident victims seek compensation for catastrophic injuries caused by someone else’s negligence. The extent of your injury will determine the amount of damages you can obtain through a personal injury lawsuit. So, what exactly is a catastrophic injury? Under NJ law, a catastrophic injury is a life-changing injury. This can involve the loss of a leg, the loss of an arm, or terrible scarring. In a case involved a catastrophic injury that will affect the victim’s earnings for the rest of their life, it will be necessary to hire medical experts as witnesses. It may also be necessary to hire an economist and a vocational expert to calculate the future loss of income. (An economist will consider factors such as the victim’s inability to work due to their disability.)
