Catastrophic injury claims are devastating injuries leading to permanent – lifeline wounds. Such injures lead to major disabilities so severe as to leave a once active and self-sufficient individual incapable of performing routine tasks. Even worst in the most severe cases, victims of catastrophic injuries are unable to walk, move their limbs and talk.
Survivors of catastrophic injuries might even suffer from a mental handicap. This, without a doubt, results in personality alterations and the way the survivor processes their thoughts and emotions. An individual who has suffered from such a traumatizing incident would have trouble interacting with other members of society.
It is imperative, therefore, that victims of catastrophic injuries receive proper treatment to help them recuperate as soon as possible without having to lengthen their pain and suffering. In addition, they should get duly compensated for the pain and suffering they will have endured.
