What Are Catastrophic Injuries?
Injuries such as Traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury (SCI), large scale burn injury, neck injury, back injury, amputation or loss of limb, broken limbs or bones, blindness, deafness, paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia are considered life altering or time marking events. These are the events that injured persons refer to as something happened either before or after the catastrophic injury event.
Head injuries are becoming popularized by the NFL. Studies continue to be published on the amount of brain damage caused by the playing of football here in the United States. The science is still new and many smaller seeming injuries are now being elevated to the catastrophic level due to sensitivity of the brain.
Although these events are life changing, they do not have to be life defining. In the post event landscape, it is important to have a strong and efficient Louisiana catastrophic injury lawyer who will work to make sure that the injury is compensated, the medical bills are paid in full, including future medical care and long term medical care.
There are so many complicated elements involving a catastrophic injury. The care is essential. The at fault party’s insurance needs to pay for the huge amount of medical care needed to remedy this type of injury. Then a life care plan from a certified life care planner will add up the cost of medical and long term care for the injured victim. These are expensive endeavors but they are necessary to make sure the victim is made whole.
