Injury Lawyers Can Help

A catastrophic injury is exactly what its name implies: catastrophic. In a flash, a catastrophic injury can change the trajectory of your life. This term encompasses a wide range of injuries, all of which significantly alter what the injured individual is able to do on a daily and long-term basis. These injuries often impact one’s ability to make a living. The financial and emotional consequences of a catastrophic injury are devastating and wide-ranging. It is critical that you retain compassionate, competent, experienced, and aggressive attorneys to represent you. The injury lawyers of Kirkendall Dwyer LLP are here to help.

What is a Catastrophic Injury?

As mentioned above, catastrophic injury is a broad term encompassing many types of injuries to many areas of the body, including:

  • Brain and spinal cord injuries
  • Limb injuries resulting in amputations
  • Eye injuries resulting in blindness
  • Severe and multiple bone fractures

While an injury may originate in one area of the body, the impact of a catastrophic injury is rarely confined to one body system. Often the impact is wide-reaching, leaving the individual severely limited in functioning. A spinal cord injury for example can leave the victim unable to care for himself in the most basic way. It may leave an individual confined to a wheelchair and unable to make a living.

Just as there are a broad range of injuries that are considered catastrophic, there are also a range of accidents that result in these injuries, including:

  • Motor vehicle accidents, including motorcycle accidents
  • Industrial or construction accidents
  • Sporting accidents
  • Falls
  • Bad drugs and devices
  • Medical malpractice
