What is Considered a Catastrophic Injury?
While most injuries cause physical suffering and some degree of distress,
catastrophic injuries are those that have severe, long-lasting, life-altering effects.
Common examples of catastrophic injuries include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Severe burns
- Loss of eyesight
These injuries not only involve intense physical pain and suffering at
the outset, but generally result in serious, life-long consequences and
lifestyle changes as well. Catastrophic injuries can be particularly devastating
for children who usually have special needs and whose cases deserve special
Traumatic Brain Injuries
One of the most common types of catastrophic injury is
traumatic brain injury (TBI). According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), TBIs affect more than
1.4 million people every year, or an estimated two percent of the U.S.
TBIs can cause a wide variety of effects, including the impairment of:
- Cognitive ability
Fighting for fair compensation for these types of injuries, which can range
from mild to severe, is typically a complex process that requires the
proactive involvement of both a catastrophic injury attorney and the injured
victim or family members.
Traumatic Injury of the Spinal Cord
Another common catastrophic injury involves
traumatic injury of the spinal cord. The overwhelming majority of spinal cord injuries are caused by
motor vehicle collisions. These types of injuries, including partial paralysis, paraplegia and
quadriplegia, can be debilitating and can have life-long effects ranging
from pressure sores and respiratory complications to spasticity and scoliosis.
Fighting for Fair Recovery on Your Behalf
The financial impact of long-term care for one of these or other types
of catastrophic injuries can easily exceed millions of dollars, yet the
long-term implications for such injuries are often not readily apparent.
Anyone suffering a catastrophic injury deserves an attorney that understands
these complex and often delicate issues.
Any settlement of a catastrophic injury claim must take into account a
multitude of complex factors, including compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Physical pain and suffering
- Future surgeries
- Future medical or nursing care
