Types of Catastrophic Injury
Catastrophic injuries can take many forms depending on the circumstances that caused the accident.
Common types of catastrophic injury include:
- Spinal injuries: Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) can be serious. Victims of SCI can be left with reduced sensation in limbs, lasting pain in various parts of the body, issues with breathing, muscle weakness, and impacted motor function. Spinal cord injuries may be experienced in the lumbar, cervical, or thoracic regions of the spine.
- Brain injuries: Traumatic Brain Injury, or TBI, may be experienced by the victim in varying severities. Since the brain is fundamental to virtually every function of the body, the symptoms can range widely and present throughout the body.
- Burn injuries: Moderate to severe burns can be classified as catastrophic injuries. Injuries from burns may reach deeper than the visible damage and affect your bones, nerves, and musculature. Lasting pain from burns is not uncommon, even after initial treatment concludes.
Ms. Bell can represent you no matter the severity of your situation. She is available to answer your questions, address your concerns, and make sure you know where your claim stands. It is important to the success of your case that you feel comfortable knowing there is a sound strategy in place.
