Common Catastrophic Injuries
We’re sure you’re wondering what counts as a “catastrophic injury.” We understand how this can be confusing since catastrophic injuries come in a number of shapes and sizes. The common denominator is that these types of accidents cause serious physical damage that is often long-lasting. Some of the catastrophic injuries that we commonly see include:
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Vision loss
- Spinal cord injuries
- Burn injuries
- Traumatic brain injury
- Neck injuries
Regardless of the type of impairment, a serious injury can severely limit a person’s day-to-day activities, including the ability to make money and provide for a family. Getting what you deserve helps pay for these new problems caused by the accident.
Compensation For Your Injuries
Catastrophic injuries can happen in a wide variety of ways, from a multi-car accident on a busy highway to a platform accident on an oil & gas offshore rig or even an explosion at a plant.
A person who is injured in these and other types of accidents in Louisiana has the right to seek compensation from those responsible. Some examples of this include a store owner who allows the premises to become unsafe or a negligent driver who causes a crash.
The money damages available in these cases typically include compensation for current and future medical bills, lost wages or any reduction in earning capacity caused by the injuries. Additional compensation is often available for pain, suffering and emotional distress, including that related to a person’s inability to enjoy common daily activities.
