Serious injuries which involve permanent disability or long term consequences are generally grouped as catastrophic injury.  These are truly life-changing injuries which come from a wide variety of accidents.  Most accidents occur because someone was guilty of negligence.  Usually the guilty party was not the victim.  How unfair for the injured person to be left with the financial burdens as well as the physical trauma and impairment.  The role of the Chicago personal injury attorney is to ensure that the victim of someone's careless or reckless behavior is not also financially victimized, but is awarded a measure of justice under the law.
