Common Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Although there are a variety of injuries that are considered catastrophic, they all have an enormous impact on the victim’s life and their family members. A victim will need to seek compensation to afford medical treatment and to recover their lost wages. Most people cannot afford to manage serious injuries and disabilities while maintaining the same quality of life. For survivors who lost a limb or lost their mobility, they will require long-term expenses for prosthetics and for equipment to accommodate their new capabilities.
Our firm can fight for the recovery you or your loved one need for life. This is a stressful time, and there is a lot of uncertainty and unanswered questions. Our team of Dallas serious injury lawyers focuses on guiding clients on the right path while giving them peace of mind about their future.
Different types of catastrophic injuries include:
- Acoustic Trauma: Causes severe hearing damage. Usually causes permanent hearing loss.
- Blunt Force Trauma: Caused by significant force applied to the body. One of the most common areas this injury affects is the head, which can lead to brain damage.
- Burns, Scarring, and Disfigurement: These injuries are characterized by the destruction of the skin down to the muscle/bone. Full-thickness burns require extensive treatment and sometimes amputation.
- Neck and Back Injuries: At least one million people suffer from neck and back injuries every year. Some are so severe, they leave a victim with chronic pain and loss of mobility.
- Neurological Injuries: These injuries can cause permanent loss of cognitive function.
- Spinal Cord Injuries: Spinal cord injuries can cause partial limb dysfunction or even paralysis.
- Vision Loss and Other Eye Injuries: Loss of vision is one of the most common workplace injuries.

What Causes Serious Injuries?
No matter who you are, where you live, or what you do for a living, you could be at risk of suffering a serious injury in an accident or another incident that you have no control over—that occurs because someone else was negligent, careless, or reckless. Traffic accidents, workplace accidents, defective products, dangerous medical devices, and accidents on another's property can all cause catastrophic injuries.
