Catastrophic injuries are, by their very nature, life-changing events that have long-term consequences for the victims. Whether the result of a personal injury, an assault, a vehicular collision, or a workplace injury, catastrophic injuries often result in lifelong conditions such as full or partial paralysis, mental impairment, or severe burns.
These injuries are frequently the results of the actions — or inaction — of another party. Negligence is the key to determining fault in catastrophic injury cases. If the injury occurred because someone actively harmed you, or because they were negligent in preventing harm to you, you may be able to seek legal recourse for the injury that resulted.
