Catastrophic injuries are injuries that require significant medical treatment and usually have a long-term or permanent effect on an injured person’s life. Some injuries are catastrophic, but with good medical attention the injured person can make a good or excellent recovery. Others cause permanent disability, significant suffering, and may substantially shorten an injured person’s lifespan. It is often a good idea to a catastrophic injury attorney with extensive experience in catastrophic injury cases. A catastrophic injury can necessitate a lifetime of medical care, or repeated reconstructive surgeries. It is helpful to have an attorney who understands the treatment and recovery process. If an attorney understands the long-term effects of an injury, the attorney will be better able to argue for just compensation.
The most common types of catastrophic injury claims are birth injuries, failure to diagnose cancer, medication and drug related injuries, product liability, accidents involving a spinal cord injury, accidents involving a head or brain injury, accidents resulting in disfigurement and workplace injury.
