What Distinguishes these Injuries from Other Types of Personal Injuries?

Catastrophic injuries are extremely serious and complicated injuries that could affect an individual’s ability to function in everyday life. After sustaining a significant condition, thinking, working, and functioning could become much more difficult to accomplish.

Typically, in a catastrophic injury, the victim may have a limited ability to work for an extended period of time. Some conditions may inhibit their ability to work at all. If there are able to return to work, it could be with limited duties or a different job function.

Moreover, the injured party may not be able to make decisions about their own affairs and a parent, spouse, child, or significant other may have to care for them. In some situations, the catastrophically injured person is unable to talk, may be in a coma, or is incapacitated in another manner where they may have an inability to communicate. When dealing with a life-altering injury, it is best to work with a skilled lawyer on your case.

Pursuing Head Injury Claims

Our lawyers have considerable experience handling cases involving traumatic brain injuries and closed head injuries.

An attorney must have a complete understanding of the causes of these head injuries. A traumatic brain injury or closed head injury results when there is either an actual blow to the head or a force that causes an acceleration-deceleration movement of the head. The brain strikes the inside of the skull causing localized or generalized damage.

It is not necessary for a person to lose consciousness to suffer a brain injury, despite this contention from the most highly compensated insurance company doctors. Closed head injuries occur from a number of possible causes, including car accidentsslip and fall accidents, motorcycle accidentsheavy machinery accidents, and other types of accidents.

Brain injuries can be diagnosed by all types of physicians, including neuropsychologists, neurologists, psychiatrists, and neurosurgeons. A person can suffer a significant brain injury even though an MRI or CAT scan shows normal results.

Symptoms commonly associated with severe head trauma include the following:

  • Coma
  • Cognitive Impairment
  • Language and Speech Impairment
  • Memory Loss and Impairment
  • Conduct Disorder
  • Personality Disorder
  • Loss of Concentration
  • Loss of Problem-Solving Skills
  • Perception Problems
  • Sleep Disturbance
  • Headaches
  • Blurred Vision
  • Seizures

Our local attorneys understand that catastrophic injuries can make it difficult for a person to lead a normal life. Brain injuries can cause changes in personality that affect marriages, families, and friendships. Head injury patients are often unable to work and suffer significant impairment on earnings and earning potential. In almost all cases, head injury patients often need expensive attendant care due to their condition. If the injury arose from a car accident, motorcycle accident, truck accident, bicycle accident, or pedestrian accident, there is often a claim that can be filed against the at-fault party’s insurance company.
