Tampa Catastrophic Injury Attorney
What is a catastrophic injury?
Catastrophic injuries are defined as
severe injuries that usually occur to the brain, head, or spinal cord and require wide-ranging
medical attention and long term care. Injuries to these body parts are
normally considered catastrophic because these areas of the body are the
motor control and cognitive function areas of the body.
When these areas of the body are damaged, an individual may have brain
damage affecting his ability to function in society and requiring round
the clock care. Or a spinal injury could leave someone a paraplegic or
quadriplegic, with the inability to care for themselves without a caregiver.
Types of injuries that can be considered catastrophic include, but are
not limited to:
There are other injuries that can also be considered as serious as these,
including neurological disorders, loss of eyesight, and
numerous fractures. These
types of injuries are life-changing for not only the injured, but their families as well.
