Catastrophic Injury Lawyer in McKinney
Catastrophic injuries are life-changing events that can result in long term, complex recoveries. These incidents usually occur without warning and make it difficult to return to work. For victims unable to resume employment, an award from a personal injury claim is vital to collecting lost income. Working with the right team of attorneys can help victims recover financially, physically and emotionally from an accident.
Accidents are the most common type of catastrophic injury. Automobile crashes rank near the top. Other types of accidents like falls, industrial and construction accidents also make the list. Accidents in the workplace can all cause a victim a lifetime of pain and suffering.
Types of Injuries
Catastrophic injuries are not isolated to one area of the body. In some cases, the injuries are internal. If you suffered any of the following damages to your body as the result of an accident, our team can help:
Broken bones or amputation of a limb: These orthopedic injuries can range in severity and number. Multiple fractures can require lengthy recovery.
Head or brain injuries: Impact to the neurological system can be debilitating and in some cases will never fully heal.
Severe back and spinal cord injury: Back injuries are common with auto accidents and often don’t appear until weeks after the incident.
Loss of sight in one or both eyes: Vision injuries are a severe impairment that can be permanent and irreparable.
Trauma to internal organs: Accidents can affect the heart, lungs, and other organs. Internal injuries may not be obvious right after an accident.
Burns: These injuries can leave severe scaring that is both physically and emotionally painful. Severe burns can be life-threatening.
Maxillofacial Injury: Severe injuries to the nose, mouth, and face. Damage to this area can be caused by assault, auto accidents, falls or sporting event injuries.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD): While often associated with veterans, this condition can also occur after a victim is involved in a workplace accident like an explosion, after a car accident, or any number of other traumatic events.
Healing from a catastrophic injury can be complex, long term and expensive. Beyond the initial recovery efforts, victims of traumatic injuries might need physical therapy and extended pain management.
Treatment plans can extend for years, all focused on helping the victim function in daily life. These treatments by specialized physicians can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. A personal injury lawsuit can help offset these medical bills, as well as lost income for accident victims who are unable to return to work due to their injuries.
