Catastrophic Injury Overview
Most injuries result in scrapes, bruises, and broken bones. In a short period of time, these injuries will heal and the injured person will recover. Unfortunately, many people also sustain life-threatening injuries, such as injuries to their spinal cord or brain. These types of injuries are called catastrophic injuries. Unlike other injuries, catastrophic injuries demand continual medical treatment from doctors, physical therapists, neurologists, medications, and medical devices.
Without proper medical treatment, a catastrophic injury may become worse over time. Many symptoms associated with catastrophic injuries may not be revealed immediately, which can further complicate proper diagnosis and treatment. Catastrophic injuries are devastating and are often times irreversible. Injuries of this nature have a severe impact on the victim’s physical and emotional well-being. Catastrophic injury sufferers are forced to adapt to a new way of living their life. This can lead to further emotional and mental trauma for the catastrophic injury victim and their families.
Catastrophic Injury Causes and Symptoms
Catastrophic injuries include spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, eye injuries, severe burn injuries, or amputation.
There are many physical symptoms that are related to catastrophic injuries. Injuries of this nature can lead to:
- loss of sight
- loss of hearing
- respiratory system dysfunction
- digestive system dysfunction
- irregular heartbeat
- loss of sensation
- loss of memory
Medical Treatment for Catastrophic Injuries
Most catastrophic injury sufferers will need lifelong medical care, especially if the sufferer incurred an injury to his/her brain or spinal cord. Medical treatment from physicians, physical therapists, medical devices, specialists, and medications is needed for the victim to regain and maintain functionality. Catastrophic injury victims need ongoing medical supervision to ensure that they are making progress, healing, and that developing symptoms are treated correctly. Victims with extreme disabilities may also require in-home medical assistance and care.
Catastrophic Injuries and Personal Injury Law
If you sustained a catastrophic, and the injury was caused by third party negligence, you may be entitled to seek monetary compensation from the party at fault. New York personal injury law allows victims of negligence to file a civil lawsuit against liable parties to recover damages for their medical expenses, lost wages, physical pain, and emotional suffering.
