Defining catastrophic injury
You may be wondering what the legal definition of a catastrophic injury is. While it can vary, it’s essentially any type of injury that happens suddenly, without warning. It leaves the person effected with injuries that are both permanent and devastating. They can lead to injures of the brain, injuries to the body, or spinal cord injuries that disrupt their central nervous system.
Common injuries resulting from catastrophic accidents
There are a number of injuries that are often considered catastrophic. For example, a birth injury such as cerebral palsy or brachial plexus injury, an injury to the back, paralysis, neurological disorders, burns, brain damage, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, paralysis, and congenital disorders. This is only a partial list of injuries that can be considered catastrophic. If you’ve suffered a serious injury then it’s worth your time to call Law Offices of Fernando D.
