Oftentimes, a serious accident can derail the course of a person’s life. If you are someone who recently sustained injuries in an accident that will leave long-term or permanent damage, you have what is known as a catastrophic injury. If this accident wasn’t your fault, you are most likely seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of any economic or non-economic damages you’ve incurred. Our firm is here to help you pursue that compensation. Continue reading and reach out to our Manhattan personal injury lawyer to learn more about catastrophic injuries and how we can assist you if you’ve sustained one.

There are several types of catastrophic injuries. Some of the most common catastrophic injuries that our firm sees include the following:
- Brain injuries
- Acoustic injuries
- Paralysis or another form of physical impairment
Where do catastrophic injuries happen?
The unfortunate reality is that these injuries can happen virtually anywhere. Most often, we see them occur in auto accidents, such as car, motorcycle, or truck crashes. However, we have also witnessed catastrophic injuries occur on foot, such as in slip and fall accidents. Our firm has also seen several catastrophic injuries occur in construction site accidents as well. Wherever your injury occurred, if it was no fault of your own, you should speak with a Manhattan personal injury lawyer who can fight for the compensation you deserve and need. Our firm can help you collect and present evidence in an effort to prove that you are truly entitled to financial compensation.
How long will I have to sue for an injury in New York State?
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in New York State is, typically, three years. This gives a wrongfully injured person three years from the date of his or her accident to pursue financial compensation from the liable party. Our firm has fought on behalf of countless individuals facing catastrophic injuries over the years, and we are ready to put that knowledge and dedication to work for you.
