When an unexpected accident results in a catastrophic injury, the aftermath can be devastating on both a personal and financial front. Catastrophic injuries often result in sky-high medical bills, the inability to work, social isolation and other adverse outcomes. A personal injury lawsuit can help you recover compensation for your losses. However, many victims of accidents find that the last thing they want to do during the recovery process is involve themselves in a lawsuit. If you want renumeration for your damages without the hassle and stress that comes with a lawsuit, retain the help of a Santa Fe personal injury attorney.
Many personal injuries are bad, but what makes one “catastrophic?” According to the legal definition, a catastrophic injury is one that permanently prevents a person from performing gainful work. These injuries are so severe in nature that they have profound and life-altering effects. Though there are several types of catastrophic injuries, the most common are as follows:
Catastrophic injuries can happen to anyone in just about any situation. For instance, a mere slip and fall can result in spinal cord injury or a traumatic brain injury. That said, the majority of catastrophic injuries arise in select few circumstances, including but not limited to car and truck accidents, industrial accidents, explosions, medical malpractice, railroad and aviation accidents and danger product accidents.
A catastrophic injury has the potential to irreparably alter your life for the worse. From putting you in a dire financial situation to preventing your ability to hold meaningful relationships, you may experience several hardships in your future.
