Catastrophic Injury Lawyer in Alpharetta

What is a catastrophic injury?

When an accident results in a lasting, disfiguring or permanent injury, the damage can be considered catastrophic. Innocent victims who suffer from such injuries deserve to be fully compensated for all present and future expenses that stem from their injuries; otherwise, they could face extreme financial hardship. Examples of catastrophic injuries include the following:

  • Severe burns
  • Broken bones
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries

The Debilitating Nature of Catastrophic Injuries

Injuries to the brain or spinal cord are particularly bad because they carry a higher risk of permanent damage. For example, if someone sustains a severe blow to the head that causes extensive swelling of the brain, permanent brain damage could result, as can amnesia or a coma. In extreme cases, an individual's mental capacity could be severely and permanently diminished. As for spinal cord injuries, they could cause temporary or permanent paralysis to every part of the body below the area of injury.

Catastrophic damage such as this usually requires ongoing care, not just a one-time treatment. Due to this fact, it is vital that you fight for ongoing compensation in a personal injury claim. Kalka & Baer LLC could provide the legal representation you need, so call today to discuss your options.
