As personal injury cases go, few are as significant as those for catastrophic injuries. However, knowing what qualifies as a catastrophic injury isn't always easy. If you have suffered an injury that has permanently altered your life, one that is likely to keep you from working in your career, potentially seeking a new career or living the life that you have previously enjoyed, it may qualify as a catastrophic injury. However, to file a case like this, you have to prove that the injury and damages are, in fact, catastrophic.

Recent animal attacks, such as the alligator attack at Disney and the bear attack during a New Mexico marathon, have raised issues about who is at fault (or if anyone is at fault) when a wild animal attacks a human. Sometimes the liability is clear-cut; for example, if the victim ignored specific warning signs and deliberately got into a situation that could lead to an attack. But if you have been injured in an animal attack where there is an extenuating circumstance that doesn't point liability at you, you may be able to get reimbursed for medical costs if liability can be established.
