Types of Catastrophic Injuries
“Catastrophic injury” is a broad term intended to encompass a wide variety of serious, life-changing conditions. While the most commonly recognized catastrophic injuries affect the brain and spine, any pervasive, life-altering and potentially permanent injury can be considered catastrophic. Catastrophic injuries include things like:
- Severe burn injuries
- Traumatic brain injury
- Crushing head injuries
- Amputation, loss of limb, or loss of use of a limb
- Serious injuries to the spinal cord
- Organ damage and loss of bodily functions
- Paralysis (paraplegia, tetraplegia, triplegia)
What these injuries have in common is that they are likely to lead to extensive, costly medical treatments, functional limitations, and carry the potential for permanent disability. Damage to the spine can impair motor functioning, damage to the brain can lead to cognitive limitations, and all types of catastrophic injuries carry the risk of premature death.
Medical Bills After a Catastrophic Injury Can Bankrupt Accident Victims
Catastrophic injuries are likely to lead to a lifetime of medical procedures including surgeries, physical therapy, medications, and nursing care. These types of injuries affect a victim’s entire family, including their children. They can also have a devastating effect on the family finances.
Lifetime costs for treatment of a TBI, for example, can range anywhere from $85,000 to $3 million, depending on the nature and severity of the injury. The more expensive the recovery, the more likely it is that the injured victim will be unable to earn their own income. If the injured person is the primary income-earner for the household, the results can be devastating. For these reasons alone, it is vital to get help from an experienced catastrophic injury attorney after an accident. Protect your home, your finances, your recovery, and your family with help from a knowledgeable personal injury attorney.
