We have a team of catastrophic injury lawyers who bring decades of collective legal experience to every case we handle. Insurance defense attorneys have certain strategies they rely on to minimize the value of a claimant’s case.

What is a Catastrophic Injury?
An injury is usually considered catastrophic if it has caused or will likely cause the victim to suffer a permanent consequence or symptom of it. Injuries that are immediately life-threatening are also considered catastrophic in certain medical and legal contexts.
Common examples of catastrophic injuries are:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis
- Broken bones
- Visible scarring or disfigurements
- Organ injuries
How Much is a Catastrophic Injury Case Worth?
The value of a catastrophic injury case is where things can get complicated and contested. It is common for such a claim’s value to reach six or seven figures, as in close to or beyond $1 million. Insurance companies hate to pay anything, but they really hate paying large sums, so you can expect heated resistance when you file a catastrophic injury claim.
The value of your catastrophic injury case will be influenced by:
- Past and future medical bills
- Past and future wages
- Hardships caused by new disabilities
- Pain, suffering, and mental anguish
The future costs of medical care and missing wages can dramatically increase the value of a catastrophic injury claim because they deal with permanent injuries. For example, if you need physical therapy once a month for the rest of your life, then the cost of that therapy alone could be massive.
At Canan Law, we won’t back down or concede just because your catastrophic injury claim’s value is so high that it brings out the fiercest in the opposing insurance company. Indeed, we will react oppositely. When our clients’ futures are depending on us to secure a huge dollar amount for them, we are known for digging in, doubling down, and rolling up our sleeves more than ever before.
