Consequences of a Catastrophic Injury
Any sort of accident can be a frightening experience, but some of the most painful accidents result in catastrophic injuries. Victims of catastrophic injuries will need to seek immediate or emergency medical treatment just to survive the accident. Unfortunately, some victims’ injuries may result in comas, forcing surviving family members to endure some of the most emotional, stressful, and heartbreaking experiences as they try to help their loved one in any way possible.
If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury in Ventura County, you should consult The Law Offices of Bamieh & De Smeth, PLC immediately after you have received the proper medical treatment. Our personal injury attorneys in Ventura have extensive experience handling all types of injury claims. We can do whatever it takes to help you obtain full financial compensation to pay for the medical treatment that is needed to survive a tragic accident.
Catastrophic injuries are classified as those which are long-term or permanent and cause significant limitations to an individual’s ability to function normally. Typically, these result in a victim’s inability to work to support themselves and/or their families, and require extensive medical treatment for years to come. A personal injury claim for a catastrophic injury is far more complex, as it requires an ability to foresee damages that may occur later on.
Our firm will work with medical experts to determine the full scope of your injury and the possible ramifications that it may involve. Catastrophic injuries tend to be gateway conditions that often lead to more severe and damaging impairments. Furthermore, as this type of injury is long-term in nature, the medical bills will continue to pile up.

Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Head and Brain Injuries
Some of the most traumatic injuries involve damages to the head and brain. From a physiological standpoint, your brain is the central control system of your entire body. The brain controls your emotions, your physical movements, your thought processes, and many other functions. Any type of injury to the head or brain could result in irreversible psychological and / or physical damage.
Spinal Cord Injuries
The spine and spinal cord combine to create the spinal column, which allows the human body to stand upright and stay mobile. Your spinal cord is a tightly woven group of nerves that are responsible for communicating electric messages from your brain to other parts of the body. Any type of injury to the spinal cord could leave a person temporarily or permanently disabled or paralyzed.
Some of the most painful injuries that an individual can endure are burn injuries. No matter how minor or severe the burn may be, burn injuries can result in permanent scars due to lost skin and damaged skin tissue. Whether your burn was caused by a chemical agent, electrocution, or a fire, you may experience nerve damage, scarring, or infection that requires extensive treatment and even surgery.
