Catastrophic injuries can occur as a result of one person’s moment of negligence. Failing to be considerate of others can result in terrible accidents that can result in these catastrophic injuries. It is very important to always take the proper safety precautions whenever you can. Wearing a seatbelt or a helmet, making sure a ladder is stable, or looking both ways before you cross the street can make all the difference.
Catastrophic injuries mean that the consequences of said injury permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work. The enormous impact that it has on one’s life is why they are defined as catastrophic. Examples of catastrophic injuries include:
These injuries can result in psychological damage, severe disability, and even death. They are often the outcome of motor vehicle accidents, slip and fall accidents, and pedestrian accidents.
As with all other personal injury incidents, it is extremely important to receive the proper compensation for your injury. An experienced attorney can help you or your loved one do this by establishing negligence of the at fault party.
