Accidents are never fun, but for some people, accidents are an absolute nightmare. Some people aren’t lucky enough to walk away from an accident with a simple case of whiplash or a few bruises. In extreme cases, consequences fall under the category of catastrophic injuries.
Common Examples of Catastrophic Injuries:
Catastrophic injuries can happen in all kinds of accidents – from automobile accidents to falls at work. What separates a devastating injury from a “normal” injury is the persistence of the damage. If you undergo an accident that permanently affects your life, you may have a catastrophic injury.
Examples of conditions that count as catastrophic injury include:
- Sensory loss (loss of feeling, sight, hearing, smell,…)
- Lost limbs
- Congenital disabilities
- Brain injuries
What Compensation Is Possible?
If an accident is not your fault, it is up to the perpetrator to deal with the damage. When you have an injury that impacts you for the rest of your life, this may be more than a one-time hospital bill. Compensation may include:
- Lost wages
- Hospital bills
When Should I Call a Lawyer?
For catastrophic injuries, it makes sense to contact a lawyer immediately. These are serious injuries that likely will have long-term impacts on your health.
It would help if you resisted the temptation to go for a settlement outside of court without legal guidance. Even if you don’t know the full gravity of your lower back pain or damaged vision at the moment, the other party might.
Don’t let people take advantage of you and trick you into a deal that will leave you high and dry in the end.
