What Is A Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury, also known as a permanent injury, has substantial long term consequences for the victim. They are usually caused by high impact car accidents, truck accidents, rollovers, falls from heights, medical malpractice and defective products. These are the criteria commonly used to describe catastrophic injuries:

  • Permanent loss of a function;
  • Permanent disability;
  • Need for assistance with the activities of daily living;
  • Need for permanent use of medications, accommodations and/or prosthetics;
  • Severe disfigurement;
  • Spinal cord injury with paralysis;
  • Traumatic brain injury with loss of cognition;
  • Loss of sight;
  • Loss of hearing or
  • Loss of speech.

It’s not necessary to have all of the above conditions to be a victim of a catastrophic injury, but having even of the conditions will mean years of medical treatment, rehabilitation, retraining or the lifelong need for economic assistance. That’s why it’s important to hire an experienced Queens, Manhattan, Bronx, Staten Island and Brooklyn personal injury attorney as soon as possible after your accident.

Prompt Action Brings The Best Results

One of the best ways to prove that somebody did the wrong thing is to obtain a video that catches them in the act. There are security cameras everywhere these days, covering the perimeter around many homes and businesses. That’s great news if you’re injured in a car accident, fall or other type of accident, but obtaining these videos requires prompt action because many homes and businesses have their systems programmed to automatically erase older recordings after a specified period of time. In some cases the wrongdoer has possession of the recording and might intentionally erase it unless they’re served with a notice to preserve evidence. That’s why it’s important to speak to an experienced Queens, Bronx, Manhattan, Staten Island and Brooklyn catastrophic attorney as soon as possible after an accident with serious injuries.
