Catastrophic car accident injuries require serious medical attention. This article discusses a few situations in which you should seek compensation.
Not all car accident injuries require the same amount of medical attention. Not all of them cause the same amount of pain and suffering, either. A catastrophic injury can change your life forever, leaving you with piles of medical bills and unable to work. On top of it all, your injury could leave you in constant pain and require years of rehabilitation to overcome—and that is often a best-case scenario.
When your life is so irretrievably shattered, you deserve to be compensated. If you or a loved one suffer any of the following catastrophic injuries, you should speak to an attorney about what you need to do to get a fair settlement.
Catastrophic Car Accident Injuries That Should Be Compensated
Spinal Cord Injuries
Spinal cord injuries can cause a wide range of issues, from diminished sensation to complete paralysis. Paraplegia and quadriplegia—the loss of function of the legs or all limbs respectively—can mean a life spent in a wheelchair. Aside from the lifelong cost of care following a spinal cord injury, there are also damages like loss of enjoyment and loss of earning potential to consider.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
Suffering a traumatic brain injury can also lead to the need for lifelong care. Brain damage is often irreversible, and even if a victim can regain function, they will most likely need physical therapy to do something as seemingly simple as walk or talk. Traumatic brain injuries are some of the worst catastrophic car accident injuries you can suffer.
Suffering a severe burn in a car accident can require rehabilitative therapy and surgery to fully recover. Burns can be life-threatening, cause nerve damage, and be physically scarring. Loss of motion and chronic pain are common for victims of severe burns.
Internal Organ Injuries
In high-speed impacts and accidents that cause crushing injuries, internal organ damage is a common occurrence. Vital organs like the kidneys and liver can become ruptured. These types of injuries often make surgery necessary, with months spent in the hospital recovering, and sometimes the victim still suffers a permanent disability that requires ongoing care.
