Catastrophic injury refers to an injury that is both permanent and devastating. Catastrophic injuries result from many things, including:
- motor vehicle accidents
- construction accidents
- slip/trip and fall
- medical malpractice
- ingesting a dangerous prescription drug
- exposure to toxic chemicals such as asbestos or lead paint
- from some other sort of accident
The physical damage resulting from catastrophic injury can include head or brain trauma, spinal cord damage, loss of mobility, loss of limb, and loss of sight or hearing. These types of injuries have a profound effect on the victim and his or her family. Sometimes, the injury will not become apparent for a few months, or even years, and the pain will only be felt years later. Victims who become permanently disabled as a result of a catastrophic injury may face a shortened life span and a life of pain and suffering. Staggering medical and long term health costs can also be associated with catastrophic injury. Enlisting the services of a catastrophic injury lawyer is the best way to pursue compensation for economic and non-economic damages such as these.
