After sustaining a catastrophic injury, a victim is often left facing life-altering debilitations and effects. Unlike most other types of injuries, catastrophic injuries typically require a much longer time to heal, if a victim is ever fully able to fully recover. Furthermore, the medical expenses associated with catastrophic injuries can be so severe that injury victims cannot afford all the necessary treatment, leaving them facing financial burdens that are often only exacerbated by an inability to work as they did prior to the catastrophic injury.
Additionally, catastrophic injuries are often the result of another person’s reckless actions, rather than the actions or decisions of the victim themselves. Sadly, this can place additional burdens and emotional trauma on a victim in Riverside County, something which our lawyers at The Seegmiller Law Firm understand all too well. Fortunately, personal injury laws allow victims of such accidents and injuries to seek recompense from the person who unduly endangered their wellbeing.
Most Prevalent Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries can occur in a wide variety of circumstances, ranging from motorcycle accidents to explosions to construction site accidents. Sadly, innocent people suffer from a variety of such injuries annually, including:
- Head and Brain Injuries
- Burn/Electrocution Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Birth Injuries
- Accidental Amputations
- Eye Injuries
- Toxic Substances Exposure
- Wrongful Death
These and other types of catastrophic injuries not only often cause physical suffering for the victim, but also emotional trauma and financial burdens for both the victim and their family.
