Catastrophic injuries often result in the disruption or impairment of a body’s muscular, skeletal or neurological systems. Some people may recover from a catastrophic injury resulting from exposure to toxic substances, but generally, catastrophic injuries tend to be permanent in nature.
Catastrophic injuries can include:
- Severe burns
- Severe scarring or disfigurement
- Severe loss of mobility
- Loss of limb
- Compound and multiple fractures
- Loss of eyesight
- Loss of hearing
- Brain damage
- Traumatic head or brain injuries
- Toxic exposure or lead poisoning leading to bodily system damage
- Electrical shock injuries
- Other neurological disorders
These types of devastating injuries often happen suddenly without warning. They have a severe impact on the victim's life and on those of his or her loved ones. The victim may be subject to long-term suffering or a significantly shortened lifespan. In some cases, as when a bone heals improperly or if there was a childhood injury with long-term growth platelet issues, catastrophic injuries do not surface for many years.
The victim of a catastrophic injury may undergo years of rehabilitation. Side effects such as stress, anxiety, depression and even violent behavior are not uncommon. The victim may have trouble communicating. And the burden of expensive medical bills is exacerbated by a lifetime of lost earnings.
A qualified catastrophic injury attorney can help you recover the maximum damages and compensation you or your loved one may be eligible for. Because injuries are often so severe, catastrophic injury lawsuits seek millions of dollars in damages. An experienced catastrophic injury attorney can also advise you on government benefits that may be available.
