Los Angeles Catastrophic Injury Attorneys
Catastrophic Injuries in California
When an injury is so severe, it completely alters your normal, day-to-day life, that injury is considered “catastrophic.” While any injury can have serious implications for the victim, a catastrophic injury often affects the victim’s ability to care for him or herself, return to work, find new employment, and live what was once an ordinary life. The cost of treating a catastrophic injury, as well as the economic and non-economic damage associated with such an injury, can be staggering, making it incredibly difficult for victims and their families to get back on their feet in the wake of a devastating accident.
At Bral & Associates, we know the true, real impact a catastrophic injury can have on your life. Our goal is to help you seek the fair compensation you deserve so that you can move forward and heal. If you were catastrophically injured as a result of someone else’s careless, reckless, or negligent actions, turn to our Los Angeles catastrophic injury lawyers right away to discuss your legal options during a free initial consultation.

What Are “Catastrophic” Injuries?
It’s important to note that there is no actual set definition of a “catastrophic” injury. Generally speaking, injuries are considered catastrophic when they have a severe and significant impact on the victim and, sometimes, on his or her family members and loved ones. When an injury leads to disability, whether temporary or permanent, partial or total, it is often considered catastrophic.
Examples of common catastrophic injuries include:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe burns
- Severe fractures
- Hearing or vision loss
- Serious head, neck, and back injuries
- Soft tissue damage
These and other catastrophic injuries often result from motor vehicle accidents involving cars, motorcycles, rideshare vehicles, and large trucks. They can also be caused by slip and fall accidents, pedestrian accidents, dog bites, and any other harmful incident or event. Regardless of how the injury occurred, victims face a long, uphill road to recovery, one that is often fraught with many challenges.
The True Cost of a Catastrophic Injury
Because catastrophic injuries are so severe and, in most cases, life-threatening, victims often require immediate medical attention, as well as ongoing, long-term treatment. In some cases, such as when an injury results in physical or cognitive disability, the victim will need life-long care, including in-home care. These costs can quickly add up and, when the victim is unable to return to work, either temporarily or permanently, this can lead to even greater financial hardships.
At Bral & Associates, we understand that the true cost of a catastrophic injury is not only financial but physical and emotional in nature, as well. Because of this, we fight tirelessly to build comprehensive cases on behalf of our clients, always with the goal of maximizing their recovery. While no amount of financial compensation can undo the traumatic experience you have been through, nor the changes to your life that have resulted from the injury, a fair settlement or verdict can allow you the ability to obtain critical medical treatments, continue providing for yourself and your family, and bring a much-needed sense of justice.
Car Accident Compensation
Our Los Angeles catastrophic injury lawyers can help you seek compensation for the following damages:
- Immediate emergency medical care
- Ongoing medical treatments

In some cases, we may also be able to help you seek punitive damages, which are meant to hold egregiously negligent parties accountable and prevent future actions from harming others in the future.
