Oklahoma Catastrophic Injuries
The term catastrophic, from a personal point of view, is subjected to the person’s opinion. For example, you may think that a collarbone fracture is a catastrophic injury, while another person could consider amputation as catastrophic. Like all opinions, this one will change according to the person’s criteria.
Not only the victim’s working ability gets affected, but the concept of “normal life”, for him, is completely changed. For example, a survivor of a pedestrian accident gets one of his legs amputated. He used to go walking to work, he liked to go for a jog or a hike, and he likes to travel. Now, he has to learn either how to use crutches or a prosthetic leg to walk. Also, is less likely that he will continue to jog and hike as often as before. This is just a simple example of how the victim’s life is affected by catastrophic injuries.
In some states, like Maryland, to achieve compensation for the accident, you must prove that the event was 100% responsibility of the defendant. This is known, in the law niche, as pure contributory negligence. It means that you have to show that there was nothing you can do to avoid the event. For these kinds of scenarios, you must hire an experienced personal injury attorney. With his help, you will have higher chances to get the coverage from your expenses.
Most of the injuries that affect the body’s nervous system and restrain the mobility fall under this category. Some of the most common are:
- Spinal cord injuries: Even the slightest harm to this nerve could cause great damage. Your mobility can be seriously affected, to the point that you might need continuous supervision.
- Amputation: Is the common outcome of traffic-related accidents.
- Burns: When large body parts are affected, the victim could develop mobility problems. Also, the chances of getting disfigured are very high.
- Brain injuries: Like spinal cord injuries, this has a life-changing impact on the victim’s life. TBI directly affects the victim’s cognitive capacities. It is caused when the person gets hard blows to the head.
- Several Fractures: When you have several bones cracked, the healing time takes longer than usual. Depending on the fracture level, the victim could need physical therapy,
- Organ damage: Severe blows to certain body parts, can induce the malfunction of certain organs.
