Catastrophic Injuries Require Legal Compensation

By Pacific Attorney Group  May. 8, 2012 2:46p

Catastrophic injuries are those of such magnitude that the victim will often require medical care, personal assistance, or supervision for life. These types of injuries affect not only the victim, limiting his or her ability to function on a daily basis, but they seriously affect family members on whom the injured will need to rely. Because of the pronounced need for ongoing medical and personal attention, the emotional and financial toll for the injured and his or her family can be devastating. The inability to earn any substantial income along with enormous medical expenses can lead to financial ruin. That is why those who have been catastrophically injured must seek the legal compensation to which they may be entitled if their injuries were the result of others' negligence.

Catastrophic injuries can be sustained in any type of accident. The most common accident in which they occur are car accidents. Injuries such as brain injuries, severe burns, loss of limbs, blindness, and damage to the neck and spinal cord leading to paralysis are considered to be catastrophic. Brain injuries, for example, can lead to a lifetime of memory loss, motor skill dysfunction, personality changes, and can result in long-term comas and vegetative states. Paralysis can result in permanent states of paraplegia or quadriplegia. Birth injuries can result in such conditions as cerebral palsy, which may require lifelong care for the afflicted child. Severe burns can result in disfigurement as well as multiple surgeries to try to restore the victim's appearance. All of these situations involve huge financial costs.
