Types of Catastrophic Injuries in Georgia
Catastrophic injuries are legally defined as injuries that result in long-term or permanent disability or disfigurement. Such injuries differ significantly from other classes of injuries because they do not rapidly heal and cannot be cured with a short hospital stay or minor surgery. Types of catastrophic injuries include, among others:
- Organ damage that requires ongoing treatment
- Spinal cord damage
- Burns and disfigurement
- Traumatic brain injuries impairing your memory, motor skills, or cognitive functioning
- Nerve damage
- Traumatic amputation
- Bone fractures that impact mobility
This is just a partial list of some possible catastrophic injuries. There are many other injuries that may meet the definition of catastrophic depending on their severity and anticipated long-term effects. Our firm will review your injuries and medical records to assess the seriousness of your condition as well as whether you can pursue a claim for your damages.
