Catastrophic Injuries Lawyer
What is a Catastrophic Injury case?
A catastrophic injury can leave a person suffering from permanent disabilities for the rest of their life. Catastrophic injuries are any injuries that have serious, long-term effects on the victim. If compensation is not received for catastrophic injuries, the physical, emotional and financial strains can be devastating.
Catastrophic injuries usually affect far more than just the victim; they can often put serious stress on the victim’s family because they may need constant supervision or assistance for the rest of their lives, not to mention a lifetime of rehabilitation and medical bills.
Catastrophic injuries can be caused by any number of different circumstances and the results of the catastrophic injury can last for weeks, months, or even years. Some of the most common catastrophic injuries include:
- Back Injuries
- Neck Injuries
- Brain Injuries
- Organ Damage
When a victim suffers a catastrophic injury, the impact can be enormous. Not only can a catastrophic injury prevent a person from gaining any substantial income, but it can also prevent them from enjoying their life and it can cause their family huge amounts of stress. Catastrophic injuries to the brain can even change a person’s personality, make remembering things difficult and prevent them from recognizing even their closest family members.
