Central New York Catastrophic Injury Attorney

Have you or a loved one suffered a catastrophic injury?

A catastrophic injury is one of the most traumatic things that can happen to you. It’s an injury that results in severe burns, brain damage, paralysis, or other life-altering conditions.

Such injuries permanently prevent you from working or enjoying your life. You may not be able to travel, partake in hobbies, or enjoy family time. And the combination of physical and emotional traumas can result in years of anxiety and depression.

Even worse, catastrophic injuries will often affect the victim’s entire family.

The inability to work — combined with the possible need for lifelong medical care — makes a catastrophic injury one of the worse things that can happen to you and your family.

What are some examples of catastrophic injuries?

  1. Severe burns often result in many complications and awful effects like disfigurement, extreme pain, persistent infections, limb loss, and permanent disability.
  2. Suffering a traumatic brain damage can cause emotional difficulties, speech and language problems, and cognitive defects for the rest of your life.
  3. A spinal cord injury can result in either complete or partial paralysis. But it can also cause respiratory and circulatory problems, spasms or abnormal reflexes, loss of bowel and bladder control, and chronic pain.
  4. When someone loses a limb as a result of an accident, they can suffer dreadful physical and emotional pain. It’s a highly challenging scenario for them and their loved ones.
