LEBANON CATASTROPHIC INJURIES ATTORNEYS

A catastrophic injury is a severe injury to the spine, spinal cord or brain and can include the skull or spinal fractures. Catastrophic injuries can be fatal or cause severe permanent loss of function and disability. Sometimes a catastrophic injury is defined as an injury that permanently prevents an individual from performing any gainful work. Catastrophic injury can result from a single injury such as a severe spinal cord injury that results in paraplegia or quadriplegia. It can also be the result of multiple traumatic injuries, including nerve injuries, burn injuries and amputations. If the catastrophic injuries are caused by the negligent or intentional acts of another person or by a dangerous or defective product then a personal injury claim or wrongful death claim can be made. When a person is prevented from working for the rest of their life or requires extensive and expensive medical treatment for the remainder of their life, seeking compensation for their injury will determine the future quality of life including the quality of their medical care and support they receive. A catastrophic injury has huge financial implications. An injured person can claim compensation for medical expenses, past and future, loss of wages for the remainder of their working life, loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish, pain and suffering, past and future, permanent disability and medical bills.
