A serious accident can tragically change your life in just seconds. Catastrophic injuries will have long-term and potentially lifelong consequences, possibly impairing your ability to work and resulting in massive medical expenses. If you have sustained a catastrophic injury in any type of accident involving negligence, you will need the assistance of an experienced attorney to champion your rights and fight for your rights to compensation from the at fault person(s) or company(s).
A catastrophic injury is considered an injury so severe that the victim will be unable to resume the life they led before the accident that caused the injury. Catastrophic injuries happen in the blink of an eye, but have lasting and permanent effects. Examples of catastrophic injuries include, among others:
A wide array of accidents can lead to catastrophic injuries, but car accidents are one of the number one causes of such serious medical conditions. Nationwide, car accidents seriously injure millions of people each year. Crashes that involve significant speed, distracted drivers, driver intoxication, or failure to obey traffic signals are the most likely to inflict catastrophic injuries.
Other causes of catastrophic injuries include workplace accidents. The construction industry is a dangerous field, and workers can sustain catastrophic injuries if they fall from heights, are electrocuted, or crushed by heavy machinery. Acts of violence are other potential causes of catastrophic injuries. Those injured due to the violence of another may be able to seek financial compensation for their catastrophic injuries from the actual perpetrator or the property owner under the theory of negligent security.
