What is considered a catastrophic injury?
Catastrophic injuries are often life-changing, and some people who sustain them may never recover. Specific types of catastrophic injuries include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Brain injuries
- Burns and scarring
- Crush injuries and internal organ damage
- Amputations and other disfiguring injuries
- Hearing or vision loss
Sometimes, catastrophic injuries are fatal. If you have sustained a debilitating injury or have lost a spouse, child or parent due to a catastrophic accident, our law firm will advocate for you to obtain appropriate compensation in a personal injury lawsuit or wrongful death claim.
Common ways that catastrophic injuries occur
Any serious accident can cause a catastrophic injury. Types of high-impact trauma that can result in spinal injuries, traumatic brain injuries and other catastrophic injuries often result from:
- Car accidents, including those caused by distracted drivers and contractors for services such as Uber and Lyft
- Truck accidents involving semi-trucks, which can weigh up to 80,000 pounds
- Bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents in which victims are directly exposed to an oncoming vehicle
- Bus accidents that can cause passengers to be tossed around inside the vehicle
- Construction accidents involving falls or being caught in between equipment or machines
When another person or entity has caused an accident that injured you, you have the right to pursue a legal remedy that holds them accountable. We know what it takes to secure substantial relief for victims of negligence.
Long-term effects of catastrophic injuries
Victims of catastrophic injuries suffer much more than just the physical injury involved. They may also experience chronic physical pain as well as mental and emotional trauma. Depression, anxiety about the future and even post-traumatic stress disorder are not unusual in cases of severe injury. After all, catastrophic injuries can change lives forever, and may mean people can no longer interact with family and friends in the way they used to. They may no longer be able to work or enjoy their favorite hobbies or interests. They may need daily assistance just to eat, bathe or get dressed. Catastrophic injuries can have far reaching effects, which is why when our firm handles your claim, we will do everything we can to ensure you are compensated for all the effects of the accident, including your pain and suffering, as well as your medical bills, lost income and future care.
