Catastrophic Injuries: What You Need To Know
To those injured, any type of injury might be considered catastrophic. However, the term actually refers to those injuries that cause damage to the spinal cord, the brain or can include skull fractures, according to the American Medical Association. They may also cover certain other types of injuries in some cases, including burns and organ damages.
These types of injuries generally have a very long healing period. Unfortunately, those who suffer from a catastrophic injury may never fully recover, and they could require specialized care and treatment throughout their life. People who suffer from these injuries need to have proper legal representation. Kastl Law, P.C., is here to help clients throughout Texas.
Common Causes Of Injuries
These injuries can occur due to motor vehicle accidents, truck crashes, bicycle accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, workplace injuries, fires, sports injuries, falls from a height, defective products and more. If the catastrophic injury was caused by the negligence of someone else or because of a dangerous or defective product, filing a personal injury claim is very important. This is true whether the act was intentional or not. Those who cause these injuries need to be held responsible for the damage they’ve done.
People with a catastrophic injury may find that the things they once did and enjoyed during life are now impossible. They may be living in pain. This changes their social life, their family life and their outlook. Injured parties may not be able to go back to work, which decimates their finances. They might need continuing professional care and multiple reconstructive surgeries. You need compensation for your injuries, and you need to have the right help on your side to make sure you get that compensation.
