Catastrophic Injury Attorneys
Holding Negligent Parties Accountable & Helping You Get the Care You Need
A catastrophic injury is a lasting or permanent injury that occurs suddenly without warning and has a tremendous effect on the life of the injured.
Catastrophic injuries can range from brain damage and spinal cord injuries to amputation, paralysis, and quadriplegia. These injuries may occur because of clinical negligence, defective equipment, work accidents, and road traffic accidents. If a catastrophic injury is caused by another person’s negligence, carelessness, or intentional act, the victim can file a personal injury claim.
Common Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Statistics show that at least 50% of all burn injuries are caused by negligent acts committed by someone other than the victim.
Neck/Back/Spinal Cord Injuries/Brain Damage
Injuries to the neck, back, spinal cord, and brain can be caused by motor vehicle accidents, falls, activities related to sports, and deliberate acts of violence.
Bone fractures are commonly categorized into two types:
- Open fractures: The bone snaps into two or more parts and breaks through the skin.
- Closed fractures: The bone snaps into two or more parts, but there is no open wound.
Based on the way the bone is affected, bone fractures can be classified as:
- Displaced fracture: The bone breaks into two or more parts. The parts end up unaligned.
- Non-displaced fractures: The bone cracks or breaks, but the ends remain aligned.
Other types of catastrophic injuries are paralysis, organ damage, loss of limb, and nerve damage.
