An injury is considered catastrophic when the injured needs long-term medical treatment, long-term rehabilitation, or suffers a permanent injury and/or disability. Examples include spinal cord injuries, paralysis, permanent nerve damage, chronic and endless pain, and post-traumatic stress disorder.
Car accidents are among the most common causes of catastrophic injuries. Many of the most severe permanent injuries result from rollovers, head-on collisions and t-bone collisions. If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of another, contact Keosian Berberian LLP to evaluate your personal injury case.
