Types of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries differ from other types of injuries in that they permanently impact you, whether it be in one or more functional systems. Even after you’ve healed, the injuries will influence the way you live the rest of your life, often preventing you from doing the same kinds of activities you did before.

Types of catastrophic injuries you may suffer from include:

Catastrophic injuries can also rack up high costs in medical bills, result in lost wages from missing work, and can even put you out of work if you’re permanently disabled. With such significant consequences, you deserve to seek compensation if your injury was caused by a negligent party. Our lawyers can do the work in preparing a lawsuit so you can focus on your recovery.

Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

There are many different causes for catastrophic injuries, including:

Though accidents happen all the time, you shouldn’t have to be in pain as the result of someone else’s mistake. We can hold the responsible party liable for your losses. Because catastrophic injuries prevent you from living your life normally, you deserve enough compensation to assist with your new lifestyle. Our New York catastrophic injury attorneys know that your life has been interrupted in the most devastating way. We want to help you restart.
