Catastrophic injuries come suddenly and change lives forever. These accidents include traumatic brain injuries, amputations, paralysis, neurological disorders, electrocution, and disfigurement. Many victims of catastrophic injuries suffer from lifelong disabilities which render them unable to earn an income. Apart from the pain and suffering, many find the cost of medical care extremely burdensome.
If you believe your injuries were sustained because of the negligent or reckless actions of another person or party, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim for compensation. By filing a lawsuit, you can seek compensation for past and future medical bills, lost wages, and other lifetime expenses resulting from your injuries.

If you’ve suffered permanent disability from a tragic accident that could have been prevented, we encourage you to reach out to The Gatti Law Firm.

How to Prove a Catastrophic Injury Claim
Unless you are familiar with Oregon personal injury law, it’s not advisable to represent yourself in a catastrophic injury claim, as they are quite complex and require a deep understanding of the law. Our lawyers can help you in the process of proving your claim by compiling all the evidence, filing paperwork by the applicable deadlines, and gathering testimony from experts.
Documentation of your injuries and other damages you’ve suffered is extremely important. You should have the following on file to help bolster your claim:
- Accident reports
- Accident scene photos
- Police record and reports
- Eyewitness statements
- Medical bills
- Medical reports
- Other damages sustained, such as car repairs needed
Catastrophic Injury Compensation
