    What Causes a Catastrophic Injury?

    A catastrophic injury can result from a wide range of accidents, including a plane crash, a motorcycle accident, a car accident or other motor vehicle accident, medical malpractice, or even a simple slip-and-fall.

    Catastrophic injury victims suffer from very serious injuries and will often require long-term medical care.  Despite modern medicine and technologies, many victims will require medical treatment for the rest of their lives.  These accident victims may never be able to regain their former quality of life.  These victims may suffer permanent disability and the permanent loss of enjoyment of life.  In other cases, the catastrophic injury may cause the victim’s death—in this case the victim’s family may want to consider bringing a wrongful death claim.

    An experienced catastrophic injury lawyer can help an accident victim manage their affairs, protect their legal rights, and get them the compensation that they desperately need.
