The Musgrove Law Firm offers compassionate legal representation for individuals who have been severely injured in accidents ranging from car accidents to premises liability cases. We can work to reduce your amount of suffering by filing your injury claim and holding the negligent responsible for the pain they’ve caused you.
What is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is an injury that is so severe, it can result in long-term disability and sometimes permanent debilitation. It can also prevent a victim from performing any work, including any work they may have held prior to their accident.
Common catastrophic injuries include:
- Brain or head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Spinal cord or neck injuries, including paralysis
- Loss of limb
Catastrophic injuries are more common than you’d think. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the U.S. had a reported 2.87 million traumatic brain injury (TBI) hospitalizations in 2014, and nearly 500,000 people on average are treated in hospitals each year for burn injuries.
These injuries can impact your functional abilities and prevent you from performing the daily tasks you once took for granted. Paralysis, for example, may require you to be restricted to a wheelchair, while a brain injury can cause memory loss, impaired motor functions, and even result in a coma or vegetative state.
Common Accidents Resulting in Catastrophic Injuries
There is an endless number of ways an individual can be severely injured, as virtually all accidents can cause brain trauma, paralysis, and other catastrophic injuries depending on the factors involved.
Statistically, there are some common causes of catastrophic injuries that our team has seen from clients, including:
- Slip and fall accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents, including motorcycle and truck accidents
- Boating accidents
- Other premises liability accidents
Regardless of the type of accident that occurred, it’s crucial that victims immediately seek medical treatment and collect as much evidence as possible that can be used to support their claim, including photos of injuries and other damages, medical records, witness statements, and crash reports, if it was an auto accident. Hiring a catastrophic injury attorney is beneficial in countless ways, one being that an attorney can collect this evidence so you can concentrate on resting and healing.
Individuals who are dealing with catastrophic injuries may find themselves in debt after accruing medical bills, lost wages, and property damage. Our attorney has guided countless clients towards a stable future by securing the compensation they need to pay for economic and non-economic damages associated with their injuries.
We can recover expenses that include:
- Medical treatment, including hospital stays, surgeries, medications, and more
- Lost wages and future earning capacity
- Assistance from caregivers or home aides
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Often, individuals with catastrophic injuries don’t end their medical treatment once their injuries are treated. They often require a caregiver or their spouse to leave their jobs in order to help them at home with basic tasks and household chores. Catastrophic injuries impact the rest of your life, which is why it’s important to hire a catastrophic injury lawyer who can calculate your deserved amount of compensation.
