What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury has a severe and/or lifelong impact on a victim. It impedes an important bodily function, for example, or causes permanent disability or disfigurement. Catastrophic injuries can be caused by many different traumatic accidents, including motor vehicle collisions, falls, workplace accidents and acts of violence. Examples of catastrophic injuries are broken bones, brain injuries, spine injuries, paralysis, amputations, and loss of vision or hearing.
Catastrophic Brain Injuries
While all brain injuries are serious, a traumatic brain injury may be classified as catastrophic if it causes severe damage to the brain’s cells and tissues. A severe traumatic brain injury may cause a coma, vegetative state, minimally conscious state, seizures, permanent brain damage or death. If a victim survives a catastrophic brain injury, he or she may be unable to talk, walk, communicate, focus, remember things or live independently. Most catastrophic brain injuries cause permanent, irrevocable damage.
Catastrophic Spinal Cord Injuries
A catastrophic spinal cord injury typically results in paralysis, or the loss of feeling and function below the point of injury. A severed spine or another extreme type of spine injury could completely cut off the connection between the body and the brain. This can cause permanent paralysis in part or all of the body. Paraplegia refers to paralysis in the bottom half of the body, while quadriplegia is paralysis in all four limbs and the trunk. While some patients can restore some feeling or function in the affected limbs with surgery, physical therapy and rehabilitation, paralysis is generally irreversible.
Why Do You Need to Hire an Attorney?
If you or a loved one suffered a catastrophic brain or spinal cord injury in a preventable accident in California, it is important to hire an attorney to represent you during the recovery process. An insurance company may try to down devalue your significant injuries and minimize your payout to protect its own profits. If your family is facing a lifetime of potential medical expenses and lost wages, you may rely on the money that you receive in a personal injury lawsuit to pay for ongoing costs. An attorney can fight for the results that you deserve for a life-altering injury.
