Columbia Catastrophic Injury Lawyer

A catastrophic injury is a severe injury that usually involves the brain, skull, spinal cord, or loss of vision or limb. A catastrophic injury can have major impacts on your life. These types of injuries often leave the victim with permanent damage, disability, and/or disfigurement, along with extensive medical bills and the need for ongoing medical treatment.

If you or a loved one have suffered a catastrophic injury due to the fault of another party, it’s important to know that you have rights, and you can seek compensation. It’s also important that you speak with an experienced injury lawyer. Marc Brown can provide you with the representation you need to fight for justice and seek compensation. Contact us today for a free consultation to discuss your case.

Common Catastrophic Injuries

Many factors or circumstances can lead to catastrophic injuries, but here are a few of the most common types of catastrophic injuries:

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI’s) cause disability and death to thousands of people each year, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A TBI can affect a person’s cognition, emotion, and sensation.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are some of the most horrific injury types. When a spinal cord injury occurs, the ability of the brain to communicate with any part of the body from the site of the injury downwards is disrupted. This means that either complete or partial paralysis from the site of the injury downwards can result. Perhaps most devastating is that for these injuries, there is no cure; the injury will be permanent.

Neck & Back Injuries

There are numerous muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones throughout the neck and the back, all of which can be seriously injured in a traumatic accident. In addition to a spinal cord injury, spinal fractures and soft tissue injuries can be especially serious.

Loss Of Limb Or Limbs

Losing a limb can be an extremely traumatic experience, and it may also be life-threatening. A person who loses a limb in a traumatic accident may have to deal with the disability that this type of injury inevitably brings as well as lost wages, psychological harm, medical expenses, and various other losses.

Loss Of Vision

Many people would agree that losing vision is the worst type of injury imaginable. Being unable to navigate one’s world by sight is extremely challenging. The transition from being able to see and blindness can be physically and psychologically exhausting.

Birth Injuries

Birth injuries, including brachial plexus injuries, infections, brain injuries, and more can shape the future of a child’s life forever. When a birth injury would not have occurred but for an act of malpractice on the part of a healthcare provider, the affected child and their parents deserve compensation.

Burn Injuries

Burn injuries involve tissue that is damaged from heat, overexposure to the sun, chemical, radiation, or electrical contact. The severity of a burn injury depends on the location and the severity, and severe burns often require specialized treatment in burn centers and extensive follow-up care. Burns can leave victims with changes to their physical appearance, which can affect their self-confidence and be emotionally tolling.
