Catastrophic Injury Cases
Rochester Personal Injury Attorney – 585.286.5124
When an injury is so severe that it causes immediately disability or is
expected to permanently affect the victim, it is known as a catastrophic
injury. In addition to being considerably more painful than the average
injury, one that causes catastrophic harm will also cost much more in
medical treatments. There is also the real possibility that a full recovery
is impossible, and so hospitalization or rehabilitation are necessary
for the rest of the victim’s life.
At The Law Office of Robert King, each client’s case is seen as the
unique situation it truly is. You can expect
Rochester Personal Injury Attorney Robert King to listen to your claims, personally review the details of
your catastrophic injury case, and construct a legal strategy that pursues

Various Forms of Catastrophic Injuries
slip and fall incidents, and much more can be the source of a catastrophic injury. Everyday situations
become potentially deadly when people act negligently and willfully ignore
basic safe practices. Even an accident that might seem minor at first
can cause an unexpected catastrophic injury if it wounds soft, sensitive tissues.
Catastrophic injury types include:
Traumatic brain injuries (TBI): A blow to the head, a high fever, or dangerous drugs can cause significant
and permanent damage to the brain. People with a TBI often need near-constant
supervision from a caretaker.
Spinal cord injuries: If a person’s spine is injured, paralysis may follow immediately.
Paralysis can be temporary, permanent, partial, or complete, and it may
affect one or all four limbs.
Amputation: Construction workers and people using industrial equipment or machines
may lose an entire limb in a catastrophic accident. It is unlikely that
amputation can be reversed, even with emergency surgery.
Disfigurement: Violent accidents of all sorts can cause significant scarring and disfigurement.
While facial disfigurement may seem only cosmetic, it can be extremely
painful and cause extensive emotional trauma.
Sensory loss: Blindness, deafness, numbness, or any other form of sensory loss is considered
catastrophic, as it involves removing a base human experience from someone’s life.
