Examples of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries can occur in a variety of ways. They can occur in everyday car accidents, slip and fall accidents, boating accidents, construction site accidents, and even from defective products. It’s important to note exactly what catastrophic injuries are. Some common examples can include:
- Serious fractures, like a spinal fracture
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Other head injuries
- Loss of vision
- Loss of hearing
- Severe burns
- Spinal cord injuries, many including paralysis
- Internal organ damage
Brain injuries are among the more common catastrophic injuries because people often strike their head in an accident. A heavy impact can have more than enough force to result in the brain striking the inside of the skull. This can cause internal bleeding on the brain, as well as swelling, which has the risk of cutting off blood flow to the affected part of the brain. This results in further damage due a lack of oxygen being received.
Spinal cord injuries are also some of the more common catastrophic injuries we handle. Catastrophic injuries can result in a person’s loss of mobility. The loss of a person’s ability to use their limbs due to paralysis or chronic pain is devastating. Paralysis can also result in the loss of certain bodily organ functions, like circulatory or respiratory.
Burn injuries are commonly seen in industrial workplace accidents, car accidents, kitchen operational accidents, and structural fires. Amputations can occur due to car accident injuries, industrial accidents, and even surgical or medical errors. Permanent disfigurement accidents are commonly seen in fires, dog bites, car accidents, and industrial accidents. Any catastrophic injury that occurs due to someone else’s negligence could be eligible for compensation, which is why it’s important to reach out to a knowledgeable Rhode Island personal injury attorney who can help.
