A person who has suffered a catastrophic injury will probably face a loss of employability, loss of quality of life and may have to depend on others for many basic needs. A permanent disability will not only affect the injured victim, but the victim's family as well.

Catastrophic Injuries can include:

Traumatic brain injuries
Spinal cord injuries
Accidental amputation
Head trauma
Multiple fractures
Shoulder injury
Neck injury
Back injury
Internal organ damage

Reasons for Catastrophic Injuries

The most common cause of a catastrophic injury is a motor vehicle accident. When another party is at fault in the automobile accident, the injured accident victim can make a personal injury claim for medical treatment, lost wages and pain and suffering. The very first thing that must be done in the case of a catastrophic injury is to seek immediate medical attention. After medical attention is sought, the injured accident victim should consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. The insurance company may want to settle and may try to convince the injured accident victim that they have their best interests at heart, but their best interest is usually their bottom line and to pay out as little as possible.
