If you have suffered a catastrophic injury because of another party’s recklessness, carelessness or misconduct, you may be eligible for compensation. Catastrophic injuries can occur in all types of accidents. Auto accidents, 18-wheeler accidents and pipeline explosions commonly leave their victims with severe, life-altering injuries and disabilities.
Catastrophic or serious injuries include the following:
- Head or brain injuries that result in loss of hearing or sight, problems with motor skills, or diminished cognitive functions;
- Neck or spinal cord injuries that result in partial or total paralysis;
- Serious burn injuries;
- Damage to internal organs, such as the heart, kidneys or lungs; and
- Dismembered, amputated or broken arms or legs.
People with catastrophic injuries often suffer long-term or permanent disabilities. These disabilities may shorten a person’s life, as well as generate ongoing medical problems, physical pain, and emotional suffering. Catastrophic injuries are also life-altering for the victim’s family members, who must adjust their priorities and work to care for their loved one.
