There are a number of different scenarios that can cause an adult or a child to suffer from one or more broken bones. A car accident,
slip and fall or even a
dog bite could cause bone fractures or serious crushing injuries that require immediate medical attention and extensive treatment.
A severe burn is not only a serious injury, but is extremely painful. The risk of infection, scarring and disfigurement can be high, and if the underlying nerve and muscle tissue is damaged, a victim can lose feeling or motor control of the affected body part. The catastrophic nature of this type of injury makes involving an attorney all the more important.
A catastrophic injury can be described as any injury that requires extensive and expensive medical treatment, particularly a life-threatening injury. Some examples include severe burns, spinal cord injuries, head trauma and brain injuries.
Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries, which are injuries to ligaments, tendons and muscles, have the potential to be extremely painful. They can take time to heal, and a victim might require physical therapy to regain full motor function and strength. Some examples of soft tissue injuries include whiplash, sprains, strains, bruises and abrasions.
Spinal Cord Injuries
The spinal cord plays a crucial role in the body, carrying information to and from the brain. If the spinal cord is stretched, twisted or severed, these messages can be interrupted or stopped completely. The result might be partial or total paralysis of a part or all of the body.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
A traumatic brain injury can be defined as an injury to the brain that results from trauma. A direct blow to the head, or a blow to the body that causes the brain to collide with the skull, could cause a traumatic brain injury that leaves a victim suffering from memory loss, loss of cognitive skills, or other forms of brain damage.
In some cases, the injury that a victim experiences will be so severe that it will lead to a loss of life. In fatal accidents, the spouse, children or other dependents of the deceased might be able to take legal action on their loved one's behalf. A wrongful death claim could give the family the opportunity to seek justice and hold the responsible party accountable for what they have done.
