What is a Catastrophic Injury & Do I Need an Injury Lawyer?
Catastrophic injuries are devastating and usually permanent. These injuries most often affect the brain, spinal cord or other vital organs like the eyes or ears. Amputations, severe burns, paralysis and other neurological disorders can also be considered ‘catastrophic.’
With today’s medicines and medical procedures, more and more accident victims can make a full or partial recovery from a catastrophic injury, but the majority of these accidents result in permanent and irreversible damage.
A catastrophic injury can be the result of any type of accident, but these devastating injuries most commonly stem from a car accident, construction accident or a slip and fall.
