What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is one that results in long-term or life-altering trauma. These types of injuries affect your daily life activities such as working, caring for yourself and your loved ones, and going about your regular routine.
You may require extensive therapy or rehabilitation, repeated reconstructive or restorative surgery, or other types of treatment, such as mental health care or vocational retraining. These injuries are extremely disruptive not just to you, but to your family, friends, and co-workers who must also cope with the changes in their lives.
Catastrophic injuries may require long-term and repeated treatments from surgeons and therapists. Some catastrophic injuries can include:
- Broken bones. A broken wrist or ankle can lay you up for a few weeks. A broken leg can put you in the hospital for months, and require more months of rehabilitation. More than one broken bone at a time can require surgery.
- Loss of limbs. Amputation of severely damaged limbs is traumatic to the mind as well as the body. Prosthetic limbs are expensive, and therapy is required to learn their use.
- Spinal cord injury. Whether it results in paralysis or just numbness and tingling in the limbs, these injuries are permanent, and require therapy and rehabilitation.
- Traumatic brain injury. Ranging from concussion to penetrating brain injury, anything that harms the brain harms our very selves. Memory loss, difficulty concentrating, changes in personality, and mental illness are all possible outcomes.
- Vision and hearing loss. Depending on the location of a brain injury, damage to the vision or hearing centers is possible. Losing your sight or hearing is one of the most frightening things that can happen to anyone.
- Electrical injuries. Common in commercial and industrial accidents, and frequently due to carelessness and workplace negligence. Injuries can range from nerve damage to heart complications.
- Burn injuries. Chemical, heat, electrical, and even radiation, burns cause deep scars, disfiguring injuries, and serious tissue damage, requiring multiple surgeries to correct. They are painful for many months after the damage.
- Injuries from toxic exposures (like carbon dioxide and asbestos). These aren’t only found in class action suits. Any exposure can be hazardous and lead to life-long injuries.
Any of these injuries can result from any type of accident. When you need a Tyler catastrophic injury lawyer to help you recover from one of these injuries, you should call Morris & Dewett at 888-492-5532.
Why Do I Need an Attorney?
After an accident, you need to concentrate on getting better. After a serious injury, this is going to take all your time. You shouldn’t have to worry about filing out insurance forms and finding documents to support your claims. Let a skilled legal team handle the paperwork and deadlines for you. There are things that are needed to solidify your claim of which you may not know, and may not be able to get while you are still recovering.
- What was the cause of the accident or incident? Who may be at fault?
- What exactly are my injuries? When were they diagnosed? For instance, you went to the hospital thinking it was a concussion, and the CT scan revealed you actually suffered a skull fracture and a subdural hematoma.
- Were you at work or on the clock?
- What were the events prior to the accident?
- What were the events immediately after the accident?
Your attorney will help answer these questions and others.
- Investigations. By talking to witnesses and reviewing documents like police reports and medical records, our team can determine what exactly happened before and after the accident that can led to your injuries. If you slipped on a ladder at work, there needs to be a determination of how the ladder came to be there, and why you slipped off.
- Multiple parties. Sometimes more than one person or company is at fault for an accident. You may believe that one person is at fault in your accident, but others may have contributed. A careful review of the event may show that several parties should be included in the claim. For instance, you may have thought your partner was responsible for not security the ladder, but it could be that the supervisor had ordered crews not to waste time securing ladders on the ground floor.
- Deadlines and paperwork. Depending on the policy, claims may need to be filed within a certain number of days after the injury. Some private policies have deadlines as short as 30 days. Incident reports don’t have to be kept forever, and at-fault companies will sometimes destroy documents as soon as they legally can. Your attorney can place them on notice that legal action is intended, preventing them from shredding any potential evidence.
