A catastrophic injury typically occurs without warning. Injuries that are considered catastrophic, due to the enormous impact they have on the lives of the individuals who experience them, include the following:
- Back Injury refers to the damage to the bones or cartilage of the spinal column. Some types of back injuries include herniated disc, broken vertebra, soft tissue sprains (whiplash), degenerative disc, or bulging disk. Some of these conditions are degenerative in nature and occur over many years. However, sometimes falls, accidents, or working conditions can also cause serious back injury. If you or a loved one's back injury was the fault of another party, please contact Garrett law Office immediately for a FREE case review.
- Spinal Cord Injury involves damage to a bundle of nerves that run from the end of the spine to the base of the brain. A traumatic injury to the spinal cord may involve damage that results in loss of motor functions. Depending on the location and severity of the injury, spinal cord damage can lead to paraplegia or quadriplegia. The most common spinal cord injuries are due to car accidents, gunshot wounds, and falling. If you have suffered a spinal cord injury through the fault of another you may be able to bring a lawsuit against the responsible parties to recover medical expenses, loss of future earnings, and pain and suffering. If you or a loved one have suffered a spinal cord injury, please contact Garrett Law Office immediately for a FREE case review.
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) happens when an external force causes damage to the brain. Traumatic brain injuries may either be a closed head wound, such as one's head hitting a steering wheel in an auto accident or a penetrating wound when an object pierces the skull and enters the brain. Some common causes of traumatic brain injury include vehicle accidents, violence, and falls. The severity of TBI can range from severe brain damage to a mild concussion. Many times it is difficult to assess the damage caused by head trauma as some symptoms may delayed and include depression, confusion, loss of brain function, loss of body function, coma, and death. Regardless of how minor or major you or your loved one's brain injury may seem, it is good idea to speak to an attorney. Please contact Garrett Law Office immediately for a FREE case review.
Management of these types of injuries is complex and may require the expertise of a team of professionals including doctors, nurses, consultants, therapists, and counselors. Clearly, the long-term needs of someone who has experienced this type of injury far exceed those with less severe injuries. Individuals may recover from some catastrophic injuries if they receive proper, early medical treatment. Nevertheless, others may experience permanent disability, significant suffering, and reduced life spans. If you have a back, spinal cord, or brain injury and you believe another party is responsible for the accident that caused you harm, you may be entitled to a settlement for your pain and suffering.
