Some accidents, by definition, are so destructive and damaging as to be deemed catastrophic. Catastrophic accidents can happen to anyone at any time and may lead to permanent, life-altering injuries. These injuries may be caused by motor vehicle accidents, sporting activities, slips and falls, assaults, or gunshots. If something like this happens to you and you are faced with severe injuries as a result, you need to know what steps to take next. It is imperative that you contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. Our lawyers know how to deal with insurance companies and employers and will take care of you and your case, so you can focus on getting better.
A catastrophic injury is a severe injury to the spine, spinal cord, or brain, and may also include skull or spinal fracture or amputation. These injuries may be fatal or leave you with temporary or permanent severe functional disability. This can impact your entire future and may leave you with medical bills piling up, loss of work, and a life-altering injury.
These injuries may include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal fracture
- Skull fracture
- Broken back
- Spinal cord compression
- Fractured vertebrae
