Catastrophic Injury Attorney Atlanta

While some injuries stemming from accidents are minor in nature, others may be considered “catastrophic.” These are injuries that have a greater impact on the life of the victim and his or her family. They often involve exorbitant medical expenses, long-term disability, and extreme pain and suffering. If you or a loved one suffered a serious injury in an accident, an experienced Atlanta personal injury attorney from The Graham Firm may be able to help you pursue maximum compensation from the at-fault party. We have helped our clients recover millions in verdicts and settlements during the last ten years alone and are ready to help you, too.

What Is A Catastrophic Injury?

Catastrophic injuries are used to describe the most serious injuries that a person can suffer. They are often painful and costly and may have long-term effects on the accident victim’s life. In some situations, an injury to one part of the body may be minor, but in other cases, it might be catastrophic. For example, a burn might only cause superficial harm in some situations while leading to blisters and penetration to the bone in others.

Each catastrophic injury is unique. Some examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Amputation
  • Severe head trauma
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Broken bones that require rods, plates, screws, and pins
  • Internal damage
  • Herniated discs
  • Other serious injuries that require extensive in-patient hospitalization
  • Wrongful death

These are just a few examples of injuries that can have a life-altering effect on a person’s life. These injuries may cause limited mobility, cognitive difficulty, altered brain function, the loss of a limb, disfigurement or other serious consequences.


Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries can stem from many different situations. An experienced catastrophic injury lawyer in Atlanta may pursue compensation for injuries stemming from accidents such as:

  • Automotive accidents
  • Defective products
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Cyclist accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Workplace accidents
  • Dog Bites
