Car accidents often cause severe injuries, which can have lifelong consequences on your ability to earn a living and significantly reduce your quality of life. When these injuries are deemed permanent, we consider them catastrophic injuries due to the far-reaching impacts they have on you and your loved ones. Our attorney in Marietta has helped clients recover millions for their catastrophic injuries caused by car accidents.
Some of the worst injuries from car accidents include:
- Brain injuries: Damage to your brain can drastically change your personality and may make it difficult to speak and perform daily activities without assistance. Other severe effects of a brain injury include memory loss, attention deficits and incontinence. This permanent disability could end your career and harm every aspect of your life.
- Neck and Back Injuries: These may vary in severity, but often are accompanied by chronic pain caused by whiplash, pinched nerves, compression fractures or broken vertebrae. A catastrophic neck or back injury may include paralysis, and in some cases, lead to death.
- Spinal Cord Injuries: Damage to your spinal cord can cause you to lose your ability to control bodily functions and result in partial or full paralysis. A spinal cord injury can be devastating and rob you of your ability live a full life, as well as force you to make home modifications to accommodate your permanent disability, such as wheelchair ramps.
Auto accidents involving commercial trucks or motorcycles are even more likely to cause the severe injuries we listed above. The medical expenses for these catastrophic damages can be astronomical. It’s vital to your quality of life and that of your loved ones that you seek the highest amount of compensation possible to cover your lifelong expenses and pain and suffering.
