San Bernardino Catastrophic Injury Attorney
Defining Catastrophic Injury
Many acts of negligence result in serious accidents, which may in turn
result in catastrophic injury. In general, a catastrophic injury is one
that causes lasting or permanent impairment, debilitation, or disfigurement.
Some of the more common examples include
brain and spinal injuries, which can limit a victim's mental capacity and/or mobility. Traumatic
Brain Injury (TBI) is caused by a sudden, harsh blow to the head, such
as in a car accident or a slip and fall accident. The resulting bruising
and swelling can cause damage to brain cells and result in dizziness,
nausea, unconsciousness, memory loss, or a coma. Damage to the spinal
cord can result in temporary or permanent paralysis and change their life
in a drastic way.
Severe burns are another common form of catastrophic injury. If a burn is deep enough
and/or spread over a large area, the scarring can affect their appearance.
This may damage their self-esteem, affect their relationships, or even
affect their health. Serious burns can result in permanent nerve damage
and loss of feeling, vision loss, and restricted mobility. Any victim
who incurs this form of injury will be required to receive immediate medical
attention, likely spending a large sum of money for the initial procedures
and following treatments. In various situations, victims may be required
to undergo medical attention to some extent for the remainder of their
life due to their injury.
Benefits of Taking Legal Action
One particular reason that victims of catastrophic injuries should pursue
legal action is because of the long term affects that their injury can
have not only on their enjoyment of life, but also their ability to maintain
their current position of employment after the injury. For example, if
a construction worker sustained permanent back injuries after a
car accident, he would be prevented from returning to the job indefinitely. By choosing
to take legal action, he may be able to recover compensation not only
for his pain and suffering, medical bills and potential property damages,
but also for the loss of income both presently and for the future. If
