Dealing with Catastrophic Injuries

A catastrophic injury can be difficult to legally define as there are many different types of catastrophic injuries. In its most general definition, a catastrophic injury is a very serious injury that significantly impacts a victim’s quality of life. As a result, a catastrophic injury will often create significant physical issues as well as mental issues as the victim struggles to cope with the injury, as well as life going forward.

A catastrophic injury lawyer can provide professional assistance in getting the injury properly diagnosed and pursuing the help needed to cope with the injury.

For most people, coping with a catastrophic injury will be the most difficult thing they will ever have to do. These injuries include impairments such as:

  • Spinal cord injuries including paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Total and permanent loss of the use of limbs due to amputation or impairment
  • Traumatic brain injuries that results in significant impairment as measured by the Glasgow Coma Scale or Glasgow Outcome Scale
  • Complete loss of vision in both eyes

As you can imagine, these injuries provide extreme physical obstacles and additional costs for medical care for the victims. There are also mental issues such as pain and suffering as well as coping with the limitations of the injury. One of the major psychological obstacles that victims often struggle with is how they were before the injury compared to how they are after the injury. It can be very difficult coming to terms with these severe changes.
