Catastrophic Injuries Overview

Types of Catastrophic Injury Cases

What is a Catastrophic Injury?

Unlike a fractured bone or even a concussion, which allow full recovery with proper medical care, a catastrophic injury has life-changing effects from which a victim will never fully heal. Catastrophic injuries such as brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and amputations can impact a person’s ability to work and provide for family.

Depending on the nature and severity of the damage, these injuries may be accompanied by a need for long-term medical care or therapy; home alterations to accommodate special equipment; and expensive medications. Without help, the costs associated with catastrophic injuries can be financially overwhelming. That’s why it’s a good idea to contact the Kiley Law Group for a no-cost consultation if you or a loved one suffered a catastrophic injury caused by another’s negligence. Back to Overview

Damage to the spinal cord has serious consequences that require expensive treatment and leave lifetime impacts. The severity of spinal cord injuries depends where on the spinal cord the damage occurred; these injuries are often categorized as “complete” (in which there is a complete lack of function and sensation below the area of injury) or “incomplete” (in which there is some function or sensation below the injury site).

The costs and life changes associated with spinal cord injuries can be overwhelming.

The costs associated with severe spinal cord injuries such as paraplegia can be as life-changing as the injuries themselves.
