Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Under the legal definition, catastrophic injuries prevent the victim from
maintaining any gainful employment. They often occur suddenly without
warning, and often cause permanent physical and mental damage. Whether
your injury resulted from a
defective product, or other incident caused by the negligence of another person, our Honolulu
catastrophic injury attorneys can work hard to pursue justice for your case.
Common types of catastrophic injuries include:
Treatment for catastrophic injuries is often long-term and intensive. It
includes speech therapy, physical therapy, surgery, and other expensive
medical procedures to improve the patient’s quality of life. In-home
care is also often required for patients who lack the ability to take
care of themselves and perform routine daily tasks.
Understand Your Options for Pursuing Compensation
In Hawaii, there is no cap on economic damages you may receive for a catastrophic
injury. This means you may be able to obtain a large financial award to
cover medical expenses, lost wages, and other economic damages. However,
there is a limit on how much compensation you may receive for non-economic damages.
Non-economic damages include:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of enjoyment of activities
In Hawaii, the cap on non-economic damages is $375,000. This means, even
if a judge determines you are eligible to receive $500,000 for non-economic
damages, by law you can only receive $375,000. It is important to remember
that this law only applies to non-economic damages, so your total award
could exceed $375,000.
