Austin Personal Injury Attorneys
Catastrophic injuries are possible in any car accident, regardless of speed or the force of impact. These are injuries classified as life-threatening or that cause disability or otherwise significantly impact a victim’s life. Multiple bone fractures, traumatic brain injuries, facial trauma, internal organ damage, severe burns, amputation, and spinal cord injuries may all be categorized as catastrophic injuries. They will impact a victim and his or her family, requiring extensive medical treatment and often ongoing therapy to improve mobility and overall quality of life.
