Handling Your Catastrophic Injury Claim
The far reaching and long lasting impacts of a catastrophic injury make it especially important to look for the right attorneys when choosing a representative for a personal injury claim of this magnitude. You will need an advocate who is well-versed in these types of injuries to know what type of care is necessary and how to go about making sure that care is compensated for in its entirety, which means both now and in the future. An attorney with the right kind of training and practical knowledge in the field of catastrophic injury will also understand the long term financial burdens of the victim and will be better suited to ensure sufficient compensation so all long term needs are met. It is also important that the attorney has the knowledge necessary to explore all possible avenues of compensation when insurance policies do not provide the funds necessary to fully compensate the injured victim.

What are the typical catastrophic injuries?
Brain injuries, also referred to as Traumatic Brain Injury or (TBI), are a non-degenerative, non-congenital insult to the brain from an external mechanical force, possibly leading to permanent or temporary impairment of cognitive, physical, and psychosocial functions, with an associated diminished or altered state of consciousness. In Washington State, traumatic brain injuries are common in auto or car accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian or bicycle accidents, and work related accidents. They can be life-altering events and studies have shown that such injuries adversely affect the quality of life and mortality of the patient.
Paralysis is defined as the loss of the ability to move (and sometimes to feel anything) in part or most of the body typically as a result of illness, poison, or injury. Monoplegia, Hemiplegia, Paraplegia, and Quadriplegia are four of the more common types of paralysis. Paraplegia and Quadriplegia are the prevalent types of paralysis caused by severe trauma to the spinal cord. These two types or paralysis occur most often in the United States in car crashes, motorcycle accidents or work related injuries.
A head injury is any trauma to the scalp, skull, or brain. The injury may be only a minor bump on the skull or a serious brain injury. Head injury can be either closed or open (penetrating). A closed head injury means you received a hard blow to the head from striking an object, but the object did not break the skull. Head injuries like concussions, fractures, or hemorrhage can first appear to be nothing more than a mundane bump on the head but in fact, these can be very serious and life threatening injuries especially if not treated properly.
An amputation is the removal of part or all of a body part that is enclosed by skin. Most commonly, amputations occur when there has been a serious car crash, motorcycle accident, or tractor trailer accident. Amputation is performed as a surgical procedure. Amputees face a series of challenges after an accident that can be life changing and require compensation in order to cope with the changes in their future.
Bank Injuries or Spinal Cord Injuries
There are a variety of injuries that can occur to the spine, spinal cord, discs, and vertebrae. These injuries can affect the cervical spine, thoracic spine, lumbar spine, and sacral spine regions. Back injuries are some of the most common and debilitating personal injuries suffered motorcycle crashes or car accidents. A large portion of people who suffer a serious back injury say that the problems persist and, depending on the severity, the injury can result in a life long struggle with chronic pain.
