Car accidents often leave victims with catastrophic injuries, which can forever alter their long-term health and mobility. Not only do catastrophic injury victims often face debilitating physical impairments, they also frequently suffer from severe psychological trauma. Get the facts on what constitutes a catastrophic injury and what you can do if you have been involved in a catastrophic car accident.
What is Considered a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries take many forms, but injuries are typically classified as “catastrophic” when they significantly impact a person’s health, mobility, and independence. At Morici, Longo & Associates, we assist clients obtain financial compensation from negligent parties and insurers for catastrophic injuries including but not limited to the following:
Head injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, concussions, blindness, and other permanent injuries or disabilities
Spinal injuries resulting in the loss of motor skills, nerve damage, and paralysis
Amputation injury involving the severing of digits or limbs
Scarring and disfigurement
Broken bones and lacerations
Unfortunately, catastrophic injuries are often so serious that they affect a person’s ability to care for themselves. Many catastrophic injury victims cannot return to work or earn an income, and require long-term assistive care or devices.
