Common Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries can hinder your ability to perform daily functions and rejoin the workforce. Some common injuries include:
- Brain injury
A traumatic brain injury can cause permanent damage to the brain’s membrane—hindering the body from properly performing cognitive functions.
- Loss of vision, speech, or hearing
Severe accidents can cause blindness, speech impairment, or deafness, either temporary or permanent. These injuries could require extensive therapy to help adjust to the new limitations.
- Organ damage
Vital organs can be damaged from an accident’s impact or post-accident complications. Organ damage can affect the body’s functioning and present heightened health risks.
Paraplegia is partial or total paralysis in the legs or lower portion of the body.
- Permanent disfigurement
Sometimes disfigurement caused in an accident is so severe, it hinders a person’s ability to rejoin the workforce or complete daily functions. Disfigurement also can require numerous surgeries, which can be costly and painful.
Quadriplegia is partial or total paralysis in all four limbs.
Severe injuries like these require extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation. At Nurenberg Paris, we are passionate about helping you get the compensation needed to move on from your accident.
