Catastrophic Injuries and You

By Mulvey, Cornell & Mulvey  Apr. 15, 2011 4:49p

Catastrophic or disfiguring injuries are permanent, life-changing injuries that are the result of a serious accident. There are countless ways to sustain a catastrophic injury, just as there are many different types of catastrophic injuries. A person can become seriously injured in a car accident, a drunk driving accident, a motorcycle accident, pedestrian accident or even a workplace accident.

A person can sustain a spinal cord injury from a fall in a construction accident, or an infant can sustain permanent nerve damage from a birth injury. No matter the cause, catastrophic injuries change your life forever. They cause both physical and emotional damage to the victim, as well as a huge financial burden for that person and their family. The effects of catastrophic, disfiguring injuries last a lifetime, leaving the victim to pay the price for years to come.

Aside from disease or autoimmune disorders, catastrophic injuries are a result of an unfortunate accident. When catastrophic injuries have been directly caused by the careless, negligent or reckless acts of another individual, then the law allows the victims of catastrophic injuries to sue the legally liable party for damages. Catastrophic injuries are very expensive, and personal injury law recognizes that. If you have sustained a catastrophic injury due to no fault of your own, contact a New Hampshire personal injury attorney as soon as possible for assistance with a personal injury claim.
