Catastrophic injuries refer to injuries that result in long-term disability.
These injuries can be life-threatening and life-altering, requiring medical care, rehabilitative treatment, medical equipment, nursing care, or personal assistance for an extended period after the event that caused them occurred.
Those who suffer a catastrophic injury may depend on others as the victim may become permanently disabled, lose their employability, and suffer a devastating loss of life quality.
The amount of compensation from insurance companies for catastrophic injuries can be higher, which is why it is essential to work with a qualified attorney.
The Alexander Shunnarah trial attorneys have helped clients from across the country recover over $1 billion in compensation for their injuries.
What are Catastrophic Injuries?
A catastrophic injury is a physical injury regarded as extreme and has a considerable impact on the victim, and needs substantial medical treatment. However, catastrophic injuries may not always be permanent but may take several weeks or years to heal.
Physical and emotional damage can result from such injuries. Such injuries include severe burns, traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, fractures, or injuries causing paralysis.
That said, it is important that you know the symptoms of paralysis may not show immediately after an accident, which is why it is crucial to seek medical help immediately to detect any possible internal injuries.
