Smith Horras, P.A. Attorneys At Law : Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries are commonly known as those that affect the head, brain, nervous system, or spinal cord. They are typically disfiguring and disabling, result in multiple surgeries, permanent partial or total loss of ability to earn income, and require lifetime medical care. They often result in serious injury like quadriplegia or paraplegia sustained. Some injuries, such as closed head injuries and mild traumatic brain injuries, require extensive diagnostic testing and specialized care and treatment. Your physician will likely monitor you for cognitive and behavioral changes and your progress and health. This is especially important if a child has suffered the catastrophic injury.
