Catastrophic injuries are so-named due to their enormous impact on the lives of the individuals who experience them. They include:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Amputation injuries
- Severe burns
- Multiple fractures
- Impinged nerves/chronic pain
- Neurological disorders
- Facial scarring and disfigurement
- Vision/hearing loss
Making matters worse is the fact that catastrophic injuries will often cause severe disruption to the central nervous system. This, in turn, affects many other systems of the body and may ultimately result in loss of movement, sensation, and communicative and cognitive abilities. Respiration, circulation, skin, the urinary system, the gastrointestinal system, and other body systems may also be affected.
Management of these injuries is complex and requires the expertise of a team of health professionals including physicians, consultants, nurses, therapists, and counselors. In some cases, recovery from certain types of catastrophic injuries is possible — if patients receive proper, early medical treatment. Others, however, may experience permanent disability, significant suffering and a reduced life expectancy.
Our attorneys understand the long-term implications of these injuries from a health care standpoint, from an occupational and financial perspective, and from the holistic view that includes how the family has been affected as well. In handling these types of personal injury claims — our firm works with medical experts, Life Care planners, economists, accountants, actuaries and others as needed, to ensure that both current, future and foreseeable needs are compensated at a level that affords our clients a healthy quality of life.
