Common Types & Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
A catastrophic injury usually occurs suddenly and often results in major changes to a person’s life. Often, people who sustain catastrophic injuries are not able to return to work. Catastrophic injuries can take many forms, but some of the most common types include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Loss of a limb
- Internal organ damage
- Severe thermal or chemical burns
Catastrophic injuries usually occur as a result of a workplace accident, industrial accident, slip-and-fall accident, motor vehicle accident, or even medical malpractice. These injuries can be either partially or fully disabling depending on their complexity. For example, spinal cord damage could result in paralysis. A severe TBI could affect the way a person is able to think, speak, and interact with people. Some of these conditions may require extensive long-term care, which means significant medical bills. Holding the person or entity responsible for your accident accountable for their negligence can help you get the money you need to cover your bills and provide for your family.
