By Meyerkord & Meyerkord  Feb. 4, 2011 10:38p

Catastrophic injuries are injuries that are considered to be particularly long lasting, life threatening or extremely damaging. These types of injuries can result in serious consequences such as causing disabilities, disfigurement, paralysis, psychological or emotional damage, a decreased life expectancy or a loss of life. Catastrophic injuries are the highest cause of death in Americans, resulting in many thousands of deaths every year. These can be caused by many different situations including auto accidents, truck accidents, boating accidents, slip and falls, and construction accidents. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a serious accident, or suffered a catastrophic injury, contact a St. Louis personal injury attorney as soon as you can for legal advice about how to fight for legal compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering.

Catastrophic injuries can include many types of injuries including those involved with medical malpractice such as birth injuries, surgical errors, or removal of the wrong organ; they can include other injuries as well such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, burn injuries, dismemberment and other such disastrous injuries. These types of injuries are extremely expensive and can often excessively burden the victim with medical expenses as well as the physical crippling that can occur from a serious injury. In order to offset or cover these costs as well as other damages it is recommended to find out if a personal injury claim may be possible.
