They may be caused by the negligence of another person or persons or a corporate entity. They are differentiated from other injuries by the fact that the person’s life has been significantly altered. These injuries may require years of ongoing medical care to manage, may leave the person permanently disabled, unable to earn a living, and even needing the assistance of a daily caretaker.

Catastrophic Injury Cases in the Central Valley

Catastrophic injuries can occur through various types of accidents and incidents, such as motor vehicle accidents, motorcycle accidents, commercial trucking accidents, pedestrian accidents, swimming pool accidents, boating accidents, slip and fall accidents, nursing home abuse, criminal attacks, medical malpractice, and more. 

Examples of catastrophic injuries can include:

Traumatic Brain Injuries

These injuries generally involve a severe blow to the head and may involve bruising, bleeding, and other damage to the brain. Because of their impact on the brain, which is the body’s control center, they can have many types of adverse consequences. These can range from concussions to comas, memory loss, cognitive problems, seizures, sleep disorders, personality changes, depression, and more. They may result in reduced quality of life as well as life expectancy and may require medical care for the remainder of the person’s life.

Spinal Cord Injuries

These injuries cause damage to or the severing of the spinal cord and/or its nerves. Because it is a relay system, the areas of the body at or below the site of spinal cord damage can lose sensation and function. This can lead to paralysis, such as paraplegia and quadriplegia resulting in permanent disability. Spinal cord injury victims may need lifelong medical and personal assistance. Motorcycle accidents are a leading cause of spinal cord injuries. 

Severe Burns

Severe burns are one of the most painful injuries one can experience. When burns are severe, not only the skin but the muscles, tendons, nerves, and even the bones beneath the burns may be adversely affected. Severe burns can also lead to life-threatening infections. They may require multiple surgeries to repair as much as possible. Severe scarring and disfigurement may result, seriously impacting the person’s psychological stability. 

Other Catastrophic Injuries

Other catastrophic injuries can include amputations, loss of eyesight, loss of hearing, organ damage, and more. Where an injury causes severe, life-threatening, or permanent consequences, it can be considered catastrophic.
