Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are life-altering injuries that occur suddenly and without warning. Such injuries can result in death, disfigurement, and disability and often entail a difficult recovery process requiring multiple surgeries and physical therapy. However, even under the best circumstances victims of catastrophic injuries may never return to the lives they once knew.

TYPES OF CATASTROPHIC INJURIES

Examples of catastrophic injuries are:

CAUSES OF CATASTROPHIC INJURIES

While traffic accidents are the most common cause of catastrophic injuries, such injuries are also frequently associated with workplace accidents, falls, medical errors, and even sporting accidents. Other common causes include fires, explosions, and the use of defective products.

TREATING CATASTROPHIC ENTRIES

Due to the serious nature of catastrophic injuries, proper medical care is essential to a patient’s recovery. This includes immediate medical attention for the injury, follow-up surgeries, and frequent doctor visits.

Unfortunately, the costs for treatment and follow-up procedures quickly add up. This is further complicated by the fact that many patients are unable to work following a catastrophic accident. Having an attorney with the experience and knowledge to prove the extent of an injury is essential to getting the financial assistance needed to cover the cost of medical treatment as well as long-term loss of wages.
