About Catastrophic Injuries
A catastrophic injury is often incapacitating, impacting the victim’s ability to function for an extended period of time, or even permanently. Catastrophic injuries include brain damage, spine or back injuries, severe burns, and the loss of a limb or other body part. This type of injury is almost always accompanied by physical pain and emotional trauma.
There is a wide variety of accidents and incidents that can result in serious life-threatening or permanent injuries. These include:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Slip and falls
- Construction and industrial accidents
- Use of defective products
Medical malpractice can also cause catastrophic injury. Hundreds of thousands of people each year are seriously harmed by hospital error, pharmaceutical errors and surgical error, to name a few examples.
Damages and Legal Help
The victim of a severe injury will likely require extensive medical treatment and therapy. Loss of income is almost always a result, and there may be a need for specialized care and expensive medical equipment at home. In the case of a child or birth injury, the long-term losses and emotional impact are almost immeasurable.
If the injury was caused by the negligent actions of another party, the victims are often entitled to reimbursement for tangible losses, which include expenses related to the accident. If the evidence shows there was a blatant disregard for safety through willful negligence or reckless behavior, there may be additional compensation for pain and suffering, loss of companionship, and other intangibles.
