Atlanta Catastrophic Injury Attorney
All members of society, including businesses and corporations, owe a duty of care to others, be they other road users, customers, invitees, employees, or other parties. If this duty is violated and results in a catastrophic injury, the victim has a right to seek damages by filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit. If you were seriously injured in any type of traffic collision, premises accident, work accident, or other incident, Atlanta catastrophic injury attorney Christine Forsythe at The Forsythe Law Firm, LLC served as in-house counsel to one of the largest insurance companies in the country, giving her inside knowledge of how the other side works. She can help you get the compensation you need and deserve to get back on your feet.
Traumatic Brain Injuries
There are over a half dozen different types of traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), all of which can result in long term brain damage, reduced earning ability, reduced quality of life, emotional and psychological problems, and serious pain and suffering. Tragically, treatment of TBIs is somewhat limited at this time, meaning that a victim’s chances of recovery are often unknown.
Spinal Cord Injury
Any degree of spinal cord injury—whether complete or incomplete—is a traumatic and life altering injury. While some spinal cord injuries do heal to an extent if the spinal cord is not fully severed, other spinal cord injuries result in permanent paralysis. Depending on where the spinal cord injury occurred, the victim may have loss of function below the waist, below the neck, or even complete paralysis.
Multiple Fractured Bones
Fractures that require multiple surgeries, or injury incidents in which multiple bones are fractured, are considered traumatic injuries. The greater the number of bones that are broken in an accident increases the victim’s pain and suffering, likelihood of developing a permanent disability or loss of function, and increases their chances of dying from the trauma.
Permanent Scarring or Disfigurement
Scarring to the face, and disfigurement to other parts of the body, is often considered a catastrophic and life-changing injury. Scarring and disfigurement can happen in a variety of personal injury accidents, including traffic collisions, dog attacks, burning incidents, work related accidents, defective product claims, and more. Scarring, particularly to the face, can result in tremendous emotional distress, loss of joy of life, reduced earning ability, and other psychological problems.
The loss of a hand, finger, toe, foot, or entire limb is a tragedy. While prosthetics offer a partial solution, once a body part is crushed or severed to the degree of amputation, there is no way to preserve the body part, reattach it, or regain the function that you once had. Amputation requires an adjustment to many or most of the victim’s daily activities, including their job, their passions, and how they care for their family and children.
