Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic Injury Lawyer in the Bronx

Catastrophic Injury Claims in New York

When an unexpected accident suddenly occurs to you or a loved one, the course of your life can be dramatically altered in an instant. Suffering any injury is of course unfortunate, but catastrophic injuries cause so much physical, mental, and emotional damage that it is almost impossible to recover without additional financial support. Amid the stress following such an accident, you will likely be left with thousands of questions about the future and might be unsure of whether pursuing a personal injury suit is the most optimal course of action.

It is important to remember that whoever was negligent in causing you such extensive pain should be required to pay for their actions. Moreover, the financial costs of such severe injuries are so high that without deserved recompense, it may not be possible to pay your debts. Michael J. Prisco can offer detailed advice on the most appropriate action to take following such devastation.

Types of Catastrophic Injuries

The types of injuries that count as being “catastrophic” are very diverse, since these kinds of injuries can include anything from devastating burns to long-term neurological issues. Those who have suffered these kinds of injuries tend to require extensive medical care, therapy, and rehabilitation just to be able to accomplish the most basic tasks.

Some examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Traumatic injuries to the brain – These kinds of injuries are some of the worst to receive since the brain controls all other functions in your body. Often resulting from automobile crashes and severe slip-and-fall accidents, brain injuries can lead to partial or total paralysis, memory loss, loss of nerve response, neurological malfunctioning, and even death. Even survivors of brain injuries often develop permanent behavioral, social, and cognitive issues.
  • Spinal cord injuries – When the spine has suffered a sudden blow, whether from a motorized vehicle collision or a slip-and-fall incident, the vertebrae often become fractured or dislocated. Such damage to the spinal cord can lead to paraplegia or quadriplegia. Victims who suffer from these injuries can be partially or completely paralyzed and may not be able to move or speak.
  • Internal organ damage – Soft tissue damage is a common result of catastrophic injuries. Many internal organs, including the pancreas, spleen, liver, and lungs, are not easily reparable by surgery, and will often require a transplant, which can be extremely difficult to find in an emergency situation.

Recovering Financial Support from a Catastrophic Injury

When you have suffered a catastrophic injury, the last thing you may feel like doing is pursuing a claim for recompense. It is critical to remember, however, that the severe pain and suffering you have undergone are just the beginning of your worries. The sheer cost of hospital bills, as well as the loss of income from not being able to work, will add financial stress on top of everything else. When your situation feels overwhelming, it is important to know that you are not alone. Depend on Michael J. Prisco to give you the legal counsel you require to get the financial support you will need to recover.
