A catastrophic injury leads to damage that is life changing or an illness that makes it impossible for you to continue with life as before. The subject, usually, does not get an advance warning of the impending injury. You need strong legal representation to verify the exact circumstances of a catastrophic injury. If these injuries have occurred on account of another party’s negligence then they are liable.
Common catastrophic injuries include injuries to the spinal cord, amputation, eye injuries, foot injuries, bone fractures, burns, and head trauma. Many of these injuries occur with automobile accidents. It is important to establish responsibility for collision. Accidents on construction sites, sporting fields, and in a theater of war are other scenarios. Medical malpractice that results in injuries mentioned above can also fall under catastrophic injury cases.
