When Is An Injury Catastrophic?

Catastrophic is a word that comes up often when people are injured in accidents. It is really a way to describe the difference between serious injuries and extremely serious injuries. It is important because the severity of an injury may impact the amount of financial support needed to compensate an individual for their harm.

When is an injury catastrophic? When it changes your life forever.

Serious Catastrophic

Broken Bones

Second-Degree Burns

Fractured vertebra

Partial loss of vision or hearing


Injury requiring time off from work

Crushed Bones

Third-degree burns over the entire body

Paralysis of part of or the entire body

Total Blindness or Deafness

Traumatic Brain Injury

Permanently Disabling Injury

Subject: Letter of Recommendation


Marilyn and I just want to commend the Cutter Law team for doing an excellent job representing us in our dispute with a major international company.

John Parker, Esq. took our case involving a rather complicated electronic product design flaw and researched our legal options. He then drafted a strongly worded lawsuit document that convinced the other party that they should try to negotiate instead of going to court. A desirable settlement was reached that was exactly what Cutter Law said they would do for us.

Throughout the entire process the Cutter Law team was professional and always available to update us on the progress of our case.

Marilyn and I highly recommend Cutter Law for anyone in need of legal representation involving a product, especially if it relates to bringing a class action lawsuit.

We cannot thank the Cutter Law team enough for resolving our case.
