Types of Catastrophic Injuries
A catastrophic injury may be defined as any type of injury that causes temporary or permanent disability or otherwise affects a victim’s life in significant ways.
The following are examples of catastrophic injuries:
Spinal cord injuries
Amputations/loss of limb
Scarring and disfigurement
Any such injuries can leave a victim facing an uncertain future. Physical therapy and ongoing care may be required. The victim may be unable to return to the same line of work or may be unable to work at all. Home modifications and assistive devices may be required to help the victim face a more normal life. Identifying the full extent of injuries and their current and future impact is a necessary part of pursuing fair compensation - and our attorneys spare no effort in maximizing our clients’ recoveries.
What Causes Serious Injuries?
Serious injuries can be caused by negligence, which is a failure to provide proper care, or through intentional wrongdoing or an illegal act. This may include:
Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
Falls from heights
Slip and fall accidents
