When Accident Seriously Hurt Clients, We Make the Fight Personal

While all injuries are difficult, they don’t always have the life-changing repercussions of a catastrophic injury. Catastrophic injuries are unique because of how much they change a person’s life. Legally and medically, an injury is defined as catastrophic when it is severe enough to impact the quality of the rest of a person’s life.

The recovery process for catastrophic injuries can be long and daunting. They require dedication, time, and extensive medical treatment.

Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

As mentioned above, catastrophic injuries are anything that causes a change in the rest of a person’s life. Since many injuries can be serious, many injuries can be considered catastrophic.

Common types of catastrophic injuries caused by accidents include the following:

  • Burn injuries are painful when they happen and difficult to heal from. Once they’ve finally healed as much as possible, a person might be permanently disfigured or scarred. Scars from serious burns can inhibit motion and cause tight, painful skin for survivors.
  • Blunt force trauma occurs when any part of the body is hit with significant force by an object. It can cause head trauma that negatively impacts a person’s cognitive and motor functions.
  • Vision and hearing loss mean difficult adjustments for survivors. if an accident causes a person to have impaired hearing or vision, they’re forced to readjust how they interact with the outside world. In many instance, those who lose their vision or hearing unfairly struggle to work as they once did.
  • Spinal cord injuries are some of the most well-known types of catastrophic injuries. Depending on what part of a person’s spine is injured, they can be partially or fully paralyzed.
  • Neck and back injuries can force survivors to live with chronic pain. Sometimes, this pain is only present during physical work. When a person can’t work without pain, they might have difficulties earning a wage as they did before an accident.

The injuries listed above are just a few examples of the serious challenges people with catastrophic injuries face. Importantly, those with these serious injuries can rebuild their lives and readjust. However, they require the funds required to do so. At Arnold & Itkin LLP, we can fight to make sure clients have the compensation they need to move on after a serious accident.
