  • An Overview: Brampton Catastrophic and Serious Personal Injury Lawyers

    October 12, 2015

    Our law firm believes that if you or a loved one is ever involved in a catastrophic accident or suffers a serious personal injury in Brampton, apart from immediate medical attention, you also need urgent and prompt legal advice from our personal injury lawyers in Brampton.

    Legal Terms Defined

    In legal terms, “catastrophic injury” is caused by a serious accident and results in severe injuries to the brain, spinal cord, spine, skull. Fractures to the spine and skull also come under this category. They may cause either fatality, severe permanent functional disability or trauma with no permanent disability. It can be caused directly by an accident or indirectly by systemic failure due to exertion, hypothermia, cardiovascular conditions etc. Sports accidents may also cause catastrophic injury. These injuries result in long term consequences for the victim and family/friends. 

    Occurrence

    A catastrophic injury usually occurs without warning or prior knowledge and it leaves the person injured either permanently or for an extended period of time. Due to severe trauma to the head, neck or spine, there is serious trauma to the central nervous system, resulting in changes to normal functioning of the person. They may lead to paralysis, paraplegia or quadriplegia.

    Types of catastrophic injury

    • Severe burns
    • Head and neck trauma
    • Accidental amputation of a limb or body part
    • Multiple bone fracture
    • Eye injury
    • Organ damage

    Consequences of Catastrophic Injuries

    They can result in blindness, severe mental and emotional trauma, leading to behavioral problems, loss of the use of the entire body or certain body parts. In severe cases, there may be a combination of all these. The Glasgow Coma Scale is one of the tests used to assess brain impairment, and a score of 9 or less qualifies the person for severe brain impairment. Results from other medical and psychological tests that result in more than 55 % disability and impairment are also taken into account. Victims of catastrophic injury are entitled to very high benefits for medical care and rehabilitation. Insurance companies may deny your claims or stop the payment of benefits, which is why you require immediate legal representation.

    A typical catastrophic car accident in Brampton recently resulted in the death of the 25-year-old driver and severe injuries to the 20-year-old passenger.
