What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries are some of the worst injuries that a person can endure. They are the kind of long-term or permanent injuries that derail your life, affecting your ability to work, socialize, engage in recreational activities, and even perform daily tasks. Catastrophic injuries leave you with mountains of medical bills and affect your ability to work to pay back those costs. Catastrophic injuries can even turn fatal, depending upon the circumstances.
At Ochoa & Calderón, we help victims of catastrophic accidents obtain the compensation they are due after all manner of catastrophic injuries, including the following:
- Loss of limb or forced amputation
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), including both closed and open TBIs

- Internal organ damage
- Severely broken bones
- Paralysis (including paraplegia, triplegia, and tetraplegia/quadriplegia)
Catastrophic injuries can occur as a result of a traffic accident, a slip and fall, an explosion, a factory accident, a construction accident, or an accident caused by a defective product such as a home appliance or work equipment. Whatever the cause, you deserve to get repaid for the harm you have suffered. The catastrophic injury attorneys at Ochoa & Calderón are ready to help.

Wrongful Death Claims in California
Catastrophic injuries are, unfortunately, often fatal. Severe brain injury, spinal cord damage, and other catastrophic harms can lead to the death of the victim. If your loved one was killed because of someone else’s negligence in California, you and your family have the right to seek compensation and justice.
California’s wrongful death laws allow the victim’s surviving spouse, children, surviving grandchildren of deceased children, or other heirs to seek damages including compensation for their loss of financial support, funeral and burial expenses, loss of household services, and emotional harm caused by the loss of intimacy, parental guidance, and familial love.
A representative for the victim’s estate can also bring a survivor’s claim seeking damages that the victim would have been able to collect had they survived, including lost wages, medical expenses, and punitive damages.
Wrongful death is a complex area of law that requires the skill of an experienced California catastrophic injury attorney. Make sure you hire a seasoned injury lawyer to help you recover the compensation you are owed for the devastation you and your family have endured.
