Types and Causes of Permanent and Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries are long-term, permanent or severe injuries that lead to disability or disfigurement. Injured individuals require care or are prevented from performing day-to-day duties, and/or returning to work or school.
Types of catastrophic injuries include: severe traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spinal cord injuries, serious burns, and other injuries that result in disability. Rehabilitation for catastrophic injury survivors could mean a lifetime of medical treatments, and in some cases lifelong care or assistance. Catastrophic injuries can be caused by car accidents, slips and falls or malpractice. Unfortunately some psychiatric conditions such as chronic pain, PTSD or other disorders can be equally catastrophic or disabling.
The long-term effects of permanent and catastrophic injuries can place enormous pressure on injury survivors and their families. If you or your loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, seek legal advice immediately. The compensation owed to you could significantly improve your quality of life. With the right care and support, injury survivors can still lead productive and fulfilling lives.
