About Catastrophic Injury Accidents
In legal terms, a catastrophic injury is any injury that has permanent consequences that may prevent the victim from executing gainful employment. There may be restricted movement, functional impairments, or cognitive deficits. Common catastrophic injuries include spinal cord injuries (paralysis), traumatic brain injuries, extensive burn injuries, disfiguring injuries, blindness, or loss of limbs.
In many cases, a devastating injury can result from the negligent, careless, or intentional act of another person or entity. This kind of injury is most often seen in severe motor vehicle accidents, but can also occur in a serious slip and fall accident, a dog attack, or as the result of a criminal act. Some cases of spinal or brain injury can be attributed to medical malpractice or product liability, such as when prescription drugs are involved.
When we take your case, you can rest assured we will leave no stone unturned. We look carefully at every aspect of the accident, examining relevant evidence, interviewing witnesses, and establishing liability.
Catastrophic injuries sometimes mean the victim will need lifelong care and medical treatment. A family provider may not be able to work or a homemaker may be unable to take care of children. There may be a need for at-home medical equipment and other costly accommodations. Modifications to the home and vehicle may be necessary to accommodate wheelchairs or other devices. The pain can be physical as well as profoundly emotional for the victim and his or her family members.
How Vigil & Alford Can Help
If your injury occurs because of something someone else did (or neglected to do), you may have a civil case. Many catastrophic injury victims have been awarded significant compensation. A personal injury settlement or jury award can provide coverage for medical costs and lost wages as well as compensation for pain and suffering and anticipated future losses.
