Most of the injuries we suffer over the course of our lives are nothing to worry about. A few Band-Aids, possibly a cast or a few stitches, and we're as good as new in a matter of days. But in certain types of accidents, injuries can be more severe. It's these types of injuries that can ultimately change our lives forever.
Catastrophic injuries are possible in many types of motor vehicle crashes, pedestrian accidents, product liability cases and instances of premises liability. Oftentimes considered life-changing, catastrophic injuries can include:
- Brain injuries
- Head trauma
- Spinal cord injuries
- Burn injuries
- Loss of appendages
- Nerve damage
- Serious or fatal diseases
The Extra Care You May Need
At McKellar & Easter, Attorneys at Law, we've seen catastrophic injuries affect individuals not only physically, but financially as well. The costs associated with these types of injuries, from medical expenses to lost income, can add up quickly.
A catastrophic injury can also force you out of work permanently, leaving you with no source of income and no way to pay your bills or support your family. In the end, you may need to seek disability benefits through the Social Security Administration, a process that can be challenging if you don't know what you're doing.
