How can a catastrophic injury impact you?

Louisiana workers who are injured on the job can face an entire spectrum of impacts. It all depends on the severity of the injury itself. Lundy, Lundy, Soileau & South LLP are here to help you determine the impacts of a catastrophic injury after determining if what you have falls under that category.

Catastrophic injuries include a broad range of issues. The factor that ties them all together is that these injuries are severe enough to cause a catastrophic impact to your life, be it physically, mentally, emotionally, or in a way that affects all three areas.

Certain examples of catastrophic injury can include:

  • Traumatic brain, head, or spinal cord injuries
  • Internal organ damage
  • Amputation, dismemberment, or broken arms or legs
  • Severe burns

In the case of spinal cord, brain, or head injuries, the damages can be both physical and mental. You could have trouble with your mobility and cognitive abilities. You may experience mood swings that are detrimental to your quality of life.

In terms of physical impact, many of these types of injuries will leave you struggling to retain some of your pre-accident life. You may find yourself paralyzed or unable to use your limbs as well as you could before. You might be on extended bedrest. It's possible that you will need to be on medication or participate in various therapies for a long time to come. These changes may even be life-long.

When facing the changes that a catastrophic injury can make in your life, things may seem hard to overcome. This is why gaining compensation is so important, as every bit of help counts. Continue reading about this topic on our linked web page, which illustrates more about catastrophic injuries.
