Types of Catastrophic Injury Cases
Brain injuries are as obvious or subtle as the human mind can be. With a brain injury, there could be a loss of executive function (thinking, understanding), language issues, personality changes, balance issues or many other dysfunctions. We have handled cases where the brain injury was very clear, but we have also handled cases where the injuries were not immediately apparent. We work closely with neuropsychologists and other professionals to make these vague but real symptoms easier for others, including jurors, to understand. You may experience unexplained symptoms and chalk them up to other causes or dismiss them entirely. We take all your symptoms seriously and work to get you the help you need.
Burn injuries may occur at home, on the job, or during daily activities. When a burn happens, immediate medical attention may be necessary based on the severity. Many burns can be very serious or even life-threatening, some leaving permanent scarring or lifetime impairments. Serious types of burns can be initiated from several causes.
Some of these causes include:
- Food, grease or some sort of hot liquid
- Automobile Accidents
- Kitchen Appliances
Spinal Cord Injuries
The spinal cord is the nerve highway that extends from the base of the brain to the top of the buttocks. It is responsible for sending messages between the brain and all other parts of the body.
When injured, the spinal cord may not be able to transfer these messages. An injury to it can range from instantly fatal to permanent loss of strength, sensation, and function below the site of injury (paralysis) to far less devastating. A small compression of the cord can cause numbness, pain, tingling, loss of strength and many other sensations to specific parts of the body, such as fingers or toes, or to large areas of the body. Digestion, sexual abilities, heart performance, respiration and all other body functions can all be impaired by injury to the spinal cord.
