Severe Injuries Resulting from Catastrophic Accidents
A severe injury can occur as a result of a work accident, car, motorcycle, or truck wreck or dog bite, to name a few. A catastrophic injury is one that significantly affects your life, often permanently.
Common catastrophic injuries include:
- Burn injuries
- Chemical burns
- Water scalding injuries
- Injuries requiring amputation
- Loss of hearing
- Birth injuries
- Eye injury
- Loss of sight
- Loss of hearing
- Nerve damage
- Spinal cord injury
Other common severe injuries that can have a lasting impact on your life include orthopedic injuries or injuries that require surgery.
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is another very serious, usually permanent catastrophic injury. The people most at risk for a TBI include young children and the elderly.
Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
Most commonly, catastrophic injuries are a result of car accidents, construction site accidents, acts of violence, or medical malpractice. Falls, auto accidents, explosions, sports injuries, and violence are the leading causes of TBIs.
According to the CDC, accidents are the fourth leading cause of death in the United States, with deaths in the hundreds of thousands each year. And these numbers have only gone up in the past several years. This is largely due to the increase in serious car accidents. You are more likely to have a catastrophic injury due to a car accident than any other cause.
No matter what the cause of your accident, if it was due to another person's negligence, you deserve expert legal representation.
