Catastrophic injuries often result from serious, traumatic accidents that change the lives of the victims forever. It isn’t just the victims that are affected when these types of injuries occur; their loved ones, such as friends and family, also experience the trauma and effects of a catastrophic injury. In some cases, these catastrophic injuries are completely irreversible. They not only affect the victim’s quality of life, but in some situations, can be deadly.
Sometimes, accidents that result in catastrophic injuries are unavoidable. Other times, however, it was another person’s carelessness that resulted in an innocent individual’s catastrophic injury. For example, a driver who is texting might run a red light, and cause a devastating auto accident that severely injures another motorist. Catastrophic injuries can result from a number of other types of accidents as well, such as construction site accidents, medical malpractice incidents, accidents involving defective products, slip and falls, and so on.
Some examples of catastrophic injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Severe burns
- Crush injury
- Spinal cord injuries
- Orthopedic injuries
- Eye injury / vision or hearing loss
When someone is a victim of a catastrophic injury, they often turn to a skilled attorney for help and guidance. If it is determined that a negligent party was responsible for the catastrophic injury, the attorney will typically pursue monetary compensation on the victim’s behalf in the form of a personal injury lawsuit.
When someone’s life is changed forever as the result of a catastrophic injury, this can provide peace of mind and hopefully, some form of financial stability. Let’s say, for example, the victim was the primary provider for his or her family. After sustaining a catastrophic injury, that might all change forever. That family might be depending on the monetary compensation from the case settling in order to take care of bills and other expenses.
