Catastrophic injuries are the most severe anyone can experience in a matter involving negligence. Unfortunately, they can result in lifelong damages that create significant problems with your physical, mental, and developmental abilities.
It helps to recognize what catastrophic injuries are and your ability to pursue compensation when someone else’s negligence causes your severe harm. Here are the most common catastrophic injuries you can sustain.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury can cause loss of memory, physical damages, cognitive issues, and more. Unfortunately, even a minor brain injury such as a concussion can cause long-term damages. More severe brain injuries can be debilitating.
These types of injuries can occur after car crashes, assaults, slip and falls, and more.
Spine injuries range in severity, but in the worst-case scenarios, someone may suffer paralysis. Paralysis can include paraplegia (impacting just two limbs) or quadriplegia (affecting all four limbs). The level of paralysis is often dependent on the location of the spine at which the injury occurs.
Burn injuries are some of the worst because they cause significant physical pain, long-term damages, and external scarring. A burn injury’s mental impact can be just as traumatizing as the physical pain, making it a catastrophic injury because of how long the injury impacts your life.
Broken bones are common in car accidents, and they can take a long time to heal. Without proper medical care, broken bones may not heal properly, and you may endure even more problems.
