Catastrophic Injury Attorney for Columbia
An accident can occur when you least expect it or you may find yourself being treated negligently by someone you had turned to for medical attention. Many personal injuries can be a life altering event, but it can be even more significant when a catastrophic injury takes place.
What is a catastrophic injury? These are injuries that are often more serious by nature and they may lead to long term or lifelong repercussions. In some cases they can even result in a wrongful death.
The Effects of a Catastrophic Injury
These cases are known for being more damaging and there is a high priority on obtaining just results. This is because of the widespread effects that can be faced by those suffering from an injury that is considered catastrophic.

Any of these injuries can result in severe disability and a high cost. Many accident victims need extensive medical treatment to begin correcting the damage. They may require surgical procedures, ongoing checkups, rehabilitative service and even modifications to enable them to cope with the new changes.
Many accident victims are unable to work for a period of time or may be limited from working for life. This can lead to lost wages whether it is for a number of months or for many years after the incident. Victims can also deal with pain and suffering, when the effects of the accident continue to damage their lives in additional ways.
