Catastrophic injuries can change your life immediately and in the long term. They can also change your physical abilities, hinder you from returning to work, and cause long-lasting and possibly permanent injuries. When severe injuries change your life, a Jacksonville catastrophic injury lawyer from our team can help you seek the financial compensation you need to put your life back together.
At Chalik & Chalik Injury Lawyers, we can help you pursue the at-fault party by collecting evidence that proves their negligence and liability. We can also ensure your case receives a thorough assessment and accurately document your recoverable damages. Our goal is to obtain the financial compensation you are entitled to receive via a settlement or by taking your case to trial.
Catastrophic Injuries Can Change Your Life
Accident-related injuries are considered catastrophic when they severely impact your life. Their physical impact may require months of recovery or can result in a permanent disability or impairment.
Catastrophic personal injuries can include:
- Bone breaks
- Head injuries
- Brain damage
- Limb loss
- Organ damage
- Birth injuries
- Animal attacks
- Physical attacks
When we represent you, we’ll ensure we carefully document your injuries and their effect on you. Doing so helps us prove the damages that make up your case and the value of specific damages like pain and suffering.

Proving the At-Fault Party’s Financial Liability in a Catastrophic Injury Case
Proving negligence is a key factor in your pursuit of financial compensation. When we handle your catastrophic injury case, we’ll work hard to prove the at-fault party’s negligence. To hold the at-fault party liable, we must prove:
- Duty of care
- Breach of duty
- Cause of injuries
- Financial damages
We will not tax you or your family with evidence collection. Instead, we’ll ensure you have the time you need to focus on recovering from the physical and emotional impact of a life-changing injury. While you do, we’ll build your case and ensure your case file tells the story of what happened.
We can also help you assess your recovery’s comprehensive financial impact, including the medical support you will require after your case has been resolved. Our goal is to obtain the best possible financial outcome for you and your family.
Economic Damages You May Recover
The tangible and easily documented damages we’ll fight to recover for you may include:
- Known and anticipated medical bills
- Known and anticipated loss of wages
- Rehabilitation and therapy costs
- Assistive medical devices
- In-home medical support
- Property damage or loss
Our case assessment team will document your damages and ensure we don’t omit or overlook anything when determining the value of your case.
Non-Economic Damages You May Recover
The intangible and more challenging-to-prove damages we fight to recover for you may include:
- Lasting impairment
- Lasting disfigurement
- Pain and suffering
- Mental distress
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Your family may also be eligible for wrongful death compensation if a loved one’s injuries led to their passing. We will ensure we include any relevant damages in your compensation request where warranted.

Understand the Importance of the State’s Filing Deadlines
In Jacksonville, you generally have four years from the date of your accident to file your personal injury lawsuit, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(3)(a). Additional statutory filing deadlines include:
- Two years to file your wrongful death lawsuit, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(d)
- Two years to file your medical malpractice lawsuit, according to Florida Statutes § 95.11(4)(b)
- Two years to file your nursing home abuse lawsuit, according to Florida Statutes § 400.0236
Failure to comply with the statute of limitations could prevent you from filing your lawsuit and leave you with no legal avenue for compelling compensation. Certain factors of your case may result in exceptions that alter the statute of limitations. Our legal team will explore these options based on Florida Statutes § 95.051 and ensure we file your lawsuit on time if it becomes necessary.
