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. There are other injuries that can also be considered as serious as these, including amputations, neurological disorders, loss of eyesight, serious burns and numerous fractures. These types of injuries are life-changing for not only the injured, but their families as well. If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury it is imperative you contact a Tampa personal injury attorney from the Law Office of Smith & Stallworth.
