Catastrophic injuries are those injuries that lead to permanent disabilities and long-term complications. These could range from spinal cord injuries to traumatic brain injuries to burn injuries, each with their own devastating effects. The spinal cord is a fragile network of nerves and any damage to the spinal cord or the surrounding muscles or tissues could lead impaired body movement and function. A
traumatic brain injury can be acquired by a blow to the head such as from a car accident or a slip and fall accident. Lastly,
burn injuries are extremely painful as well as dangerous. As the body's largest organ is damaged, it can lead to a weakened immune system. All of these injuries require expensive medical treatment, so you may need compensation in order to get the attention you need.
