When another has hurt someone, it can often lead to catastrophic injuries. Accidents occur every day. But when they result in severe injury and are caused by negligence, victims deserve justice. When you or someone you love suffers a catastrophic injury, everyone in your family and your household is affected. If someone else is to blame, you can obtain compensation.

A catastrophic injury is one that has serious, long-term life-altering consequences. According to the American Medical Association, it is a severe injury to the spine, spinal cord, or brain, and may also include skull or spinal fractures. However, as far as legal injuries are concerned, when it comes to recovery and the catastrophic injury definition, devastating injuries aren’t just physical. We understand that you have a lot of questions about personal injury claims. We are here to answer them. 

Significant types of catastrophic injuries

  • Spinal cord injury  is damage to any part of the spinal cord or nerves at the end of the spinal canal (cauda equina)
  • Burn injury to the skin or other organic tissue primarily caused by heat or due to radiation, radioactivity, electricity, friction, or contact with chemicals.
  • Amputation is the action of cutting off a limb.
  • Brain injuries are a disruption in the normal function of the brain that can be caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head
  • Shoulder injury may arise from the shoulder joint itself or any of the many surrounding muscles, ligaments, or tendons.
  • Paralysis injury is the loss of the ability to move (and sometimes to feel anything) in part or most of the body, typically as a result of illness, poison, or injury
  • Hearing Loss Injury is a partial or total inability to hear.

When you sustain a catastrophic personal injury, you will be faced with medical expenses, lost wages, and a life forever changed. If the negligent actions of someone else caused your damage, you need a personal injury lawyer on your side to ensure you are provided the full compensation that will be necessary for your best recovery. Dunnam & Dunnam personal injury lawyers will work closely with you and listen carefully to your story to honestly assess the many ways your catastrophic injury will impact your life. With this information, we can build a strong case on your behalf — one that we will pursue with tenacity until you receive the compensation you deserve.

Our lawyers have witnessed firsthand the devastation caused by catastrophic injuries. We feel the outrage that allowed these acts to hurt others. And we are committed to fighting for the rights of catastrophic injury victims.
