Catastrophic Injury Lawyers
When you or a loved one has suffered extensive injuries due to a major accident, it’s imperative that you hold the negligent parties responsible. Whether the injury requires long-term at-home care or extensive hospitalization, the experienced attorneys of Keane Law LLC will fight to recover the damages incurred.
Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
Life-changing injuries can result from a variety of accidents. Perhaps the most prominent cause is trucking collisions. When a commercial tractor trailer collides with an average-sized automobile, it’s highly likely that the victim becomes severely injured. Rarely do drivers walk away from the accident without a scratch.
Another common cause is from automobile collisions, especially on roadways where the speed limit is faster, such as a freeway. When vehicles are traveling at higher speeds, the accidents are more traumatic. They can involve major auto damage, as well as catastrophic injury.
Types of Catastrophic Injuries
In the case of a catastrophic injury, a full physical recovery is nearly impossible. The victim suffers extensive, irreversible damages, which can include:
- Back and spinal cord injuries: Broken back, paralysis injuries (paraplegia, quadriplegia), severed spinal cord
- Brain injuries: Concussions, head trauma, brain damage, traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Burns: Chemical burns and fire injuries that result in hospitalization, skin grafts, plastic surgery, and infections
- Loss of limbs: Injuries that require amputation
- Fatal injuries: Wrongful death lawsuits
- Other injuries: Those causing severe and permanent functional disability
When an injury is so severe, the resulting damages are substantial. In many situations, the victim can no longer work, so the loss of income and benefits directly affects them and their family. Additionally, emergency care, extended hospital stays, surgeries, and at-home care costs can create sizable debt. Many victims also suffer from emotional trauma as a result of the accident.
