What are Catastrophic Injuries?
Catastrophic injuries are the most severe and extreme types of personal injuries and can result in loss of life or a limb, permanent physical or mental disability and ongoing pain. Injuries this severe are usually caused by an accident, which is often the result of negligence, which can amount to liability for damages against the negligent party.
The most common causes of catastrophic injuries are:
Types of Catastrophic Injuries
As a result of a catastrophic injury, the victim’s life will undoubtedly change. The permanent effects of brain damage, amputation, broken bones, spinal injury, and paralysis, such as paraplegia or quadriplegia, are not easily overcome. To ensure the costs of ongoing medications, treatment, and rehabilitation are covered; the victim and victim’s family members need to consult with the services of a certified personal injury lawyer.
Some of the most common types of catastrophic injuries include, but are not limited to:
Amputation: An amputation includes full or partial removal of any of your limbs. Doctors will usually have to perform an amputation if your injuries were too severe to your arm or leg and thus, the limb can’t be saved. Or an unexpected amputation might occur at the scene of an accident, if your limb was catastrophically severed, as a result of an accident.
Brain Injuries: These types of injuries usually result in moderate to severe cognitive impairment. In fact, a traumatic brain injury can cause temporary neurological dysfunction. However more severe brain trauma can cause bleeding, bruising, torn tissues and other physical damage to the brain structure that can lead to indefinite neurological deficits or death.
Spinal Cord Injuries: These types of injuries include injuries to any area of the spinal cord or nerves at the tip of the spinal canal. Spinal cord injuries frequently inflict indefinite changes in strength, touch and other regular bodily functions under the area of the injury. Unfortunately, spinal cord injuries often cause quadriplegia or paraplegia, which can make the victim dependent on using a wheelchair for the rest of his or her life.
