Information About Catastrophic Injuries
A catastrophic injury is considered to be any injury that causes lasting or potentially life-altering damage to the victim. While many of the injuries commonly suffered in accidents will eventually heal and allow the individual to move on in life, a catastrophic injury means that things will never be the same again. Catastrophic injuries may have serious consequences, including shortened life expectancy, partial or total disability, loss of a bodily function and the potential requirement for continued medical care or therapy that lasts for the rest of the person's life. Catastrophic injuries are counted as the leading cause of death in Americans of all age groups, and they can be sustained in many ways and in many circumstances. Accidents that commonly cause catastrophic injuries include:
The above accidents are frequently the result of someone else's careless or reckless actions, and those negligent parties should be held liable for the damages they cause to innocent victims. If you have been involved in an accident and suffered a catastrophic injury, then you are advised to retain the services of a competent personal injury lawyer right away.
