Serious or life-altering injuries are called catastrophic injuries. These injuries typically have a profound emotional, financial, and physical impact on a victim. One of the best steps to take in these matters is to involve an experienced personal injury attorney to help file a personal injury claim or lawsuit.
What are catastrophic injuries?
Many types of injuries are considered catastrophic. These injuries are so severe that the victim may face the future with disabilities or require many months or years to recover to a reasonable state of health. If they were caused by another person's negligence, intentional misconduct, or other wrongdoing, you may have grounds for a claim.
