Catastrophic Injury

The Hamideh Firm, P.C. represents victims who have suffered catastrophic injuries due to the negligence of others.

What Is a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury is a long-lasting or permanent, debilitating injury.  These injuries may cause the loss of sensation, movement, ability to communicate, walk, talk, or other cognitive functions.  Many catastrophic injuries are often serious enough to prevent a person from performing employment duties on a long-term basis.

What Are Some Examples of Catastrophic Injuries?

Examples of catastrophic injuries include:

If a catastrophic injury causes a disruption of the central nervous system, a victim’s other bodily systems such as the circulatory system (which pumps and channels blood), the respiratory system (which is used for breathing), and the urinary system (which includes the kidneys and balances fluids within the body) may suffer damage as well.

What Causes Catastrophic Injuries?

Catastrophic injuries may leave a person suffering with permanent disabilities for the rest of his or her life.  These injuries have catastrophic consequences for injured individuals and their family members.

Catastrophic injuries may occur as a result of someone else’s negligence, workplace injuries, vehicle accidents, such as automobile, aviation, or train accidents, assaults or batteries, use of defective pharmaceutical drugs or medical devices products, environmental disasters, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, playground accidents, birth injuries, chemical exposure, construction site negligence, pedestrian accidents, slips and falls, or wrongful death.

Compensation for Catastrophic Injuries

If you have suffered a catastrophic injury, you should hire experienced Los Angeles personal injury attorneys in order to increase your chances of receiving the compensation that you deserve.  A knowledgeable attorney may seek compensation for both your catastrophic injury, as well as future expenses you may incur as a direct result, including lost wages, medical expenses, and the inability to work.
