Types of Common Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are the most complicated and heartbreaking cases personal injury lawyers ever see. These injuries can include: 

  • Spinal cord injuries — Trauma to the spinal cord can cause: 
  • Paraplegia — paralysis of the lower legs and body. 
  • Quadriplegia — paralysis from the neck down.  
  • A loss of control over bodily functions. 
  • Chronic pain 
  • An increased risk of an early death — In fact, the World Health Organization has found that people who have suffered spinal cord injuries are two to five times more likely to die prematurely than people without a spinal cord injury.  
  • Head injuries and brain injuries — Trauma to the head and brain can results in profound damage to the brain and with it, changes to the life and health of victims and their families. “Traumatic brain injury” (TBI) is a catch-all term that can include:    
  • Concussions — When the brain gets bounced around inside the skull, it can damage the brain cells. Although rarely life-threatening, concussions can dramatically alter a person’s ability to function.  
  • Brain bleeds —  This broad term can describe several types of intracranial hemorrhages, many of which can be life-threatening.   
  • Skull fractures — A skull fracture, if left untreated, can lead to swelling in the brain, permanent brain damage or death. 
  • Diffuse axonal injury — Some injuries do not cause bleeding in the brain but still cause the brain cells to die, leading to permanent brain damage. 
  • Severe burns — Burn victims often need months or years of surgeries, skin grafts, and the ever-present threat of infection. They also may face a life of disfigurement. 
  • Wrongful death claims — When an accident claims the life of somebody, they leave behind wives, husbands, children, and parents. That loss should not go unanswered. A wrongful death lawsuit is the most serious personal injury case.  

A catastrophic injury is a life-altering trauma that can result in permanent, structural changes to daily life. It is not enough to simply show who was at fault. An experienced personal injury lawyer also knows how to show the full extent of emotional, mental, and economic loss.
