Catastrophic injuries are very different from less serious injuries. These kinds of injuries have serious implications for the rest of the victim’s life and typically require long-term attention.
Read on to learn about some of the most common catastrophic injuries that occur.
The 5 We See The Most
Catastrophic injuries are those categorized with a need for long-term medical care and/or rehabilitation. The following are five common catastrophic injuries that our personal injury law firm sees the most:
- Traumatic brain injuries: Car accidents, construction accidents, or intentional acts of violence tend to cause these injuries the most.
- Spinal cord injuries: Whiplash can be a minor spinal cord injury, but it can also go so far as to prompt total or partial paralysis.
- Burn injuries: Burn injuries can be caused by a great number of things, battery accidents, chemical spills, inadequate wiring, hot liquid, vapes, and many more. These injuries are serious and may prompt lifelong complications.
- Amputations: Even though amputations can be medically necessary, they may also be the result of serious negligence. These injuries should always be litigated as catastrophic injuries.
- Internal organ harm: If internal organ damage isn’t treated right away, it can end up being fatal. These types of injuries tend to come from car accidents, motorcycle crashes, trucking collisions, slips and falls, as well as assaults.
