Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries can happen so quickly yet result in completely changing your life. These injuries can be caused by various types of accidents, such as:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Sports accidents
- Slip and fall accidents
- Medical errors or negligence
No matter how your accident happened, you may have sustained severe injuries impacting your life due to someone else’s negligence.
Common Catastrophic Injuries
A catastrophic injury leaves severe impacts on your life. For example, a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can affect how the brain works. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) states a TBI may lead to health problems with life-long effects that may require ongoing medical care to help with recovery. Other common types of catastrophic injuries are:
- Spinal cord injuries resulting in partial or total paralysis
- Severe head injuries
- Injuries that result in the loss of a limb
- Severe burn injuries
- Injuries that result in disfigurement and significant scarring
- Ruptured organs
There is no universal list of catastrophic injuries. Suppose you suffered an injury that results in a long-term or permanent disability that significantly changes your life, your ability to earn a living, and requires ongoing intensive medical treatment or long-term care. In that case, your injuries may be categorized as catastrophic.
How Can Negligence Be Proved?
Our attorneys will investigate your accident to determine the cause of your injuries. To prove negligence, we must establish the following four elements of negligence:
- Duty of Care: the obligation to avoid putting one in harm’s way or injuring someone. In other words, did the other party owe you a legal obligation?
- Breach of Duty: the careless action or inaction of the responsible party resulting in allowing a dangerous situation to occur. If a defendant fails to show reasonable care, the defendant breaches the duty.
- Causation: demonstrating someone’s negligence directly caused the damages you are trying to recover.
- Damages: the amount of money you need as compensation for the medical bills, physical and emotional injuries, property damage, and lost income you suffered because of the accident.
All these elements are required to prepare a negligence claim. We can walk you through the process.
