Common Types of Catastrophic Injuries in Louisiana

Catastrophic injuries are injuries that cause severe damage to a survivor’s cognitive and physical abilities. These severe injuries require long-term physical rehabilitation and other costly treatments. On top of the medical cost, serious injuries cost survivors their jobs and their savings. In cases where victims were paralyzed or lost a limb, they may need expensive prosthetics and equipment to accommodate their injuries.

Different types of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Acoustic Trauma: This type of injury causes permanent and life-changing hearing impairment. This injury has the power to change the way someone interacts with the world for the rest of their lives.
  • Blunt Force Trauma: This is when the forced impact of an object injures a specific region of the body. These type of injuries commonly occur on the head.
  • Burns, Scarring, and Disfigurement Injuries: These types of injuries cause not only physical damage but also psychological distress.
  • Neck and Back Injuries: An average of one million employees suffer neck and back injuries every year on the job. These types of injuries can be severe and result in permanent mobility issues or chronic pain.
  • Neurological Injuries: These types of injuries can result in the loss of reasoning and cognitive ability.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries: These are severe injuries that result in loss of mobility. Spinal cord injuries, depending on where they are, can lead to the inability to walk to the inability to breathe without help.
  • Amputations: When a person loses a limb, their ability to function in the world around them changes forever. Additionally, amputees find themselves dealing with immense pain—both mentally and physically—as they work to move forward after a serious accident.
  • Vision Loss and Other Eye Injuries: These injuries can result in permanent disability. Loss of vision is one of the most common types of injuries that occur in the workplace.

Often, injuries that harm the spinal cord can result in life-altering consequences such as paralysis. These and other serious injuries mean that a person life will be permanently altered. Our catastrophic injury law firm focuses on helping people adjust to their new circumstances by fighting for the compensation they need to do so. No one deserves to suffer because of the negligence of others—we work to make sure that doesn't happen.
