Catastrophic Injuries

At Mandell Trial Lawyers, our passionate and professional team of lawyers has been handling many different types of injury-related cases since 1978. Many of the cases we work on feature injuries that were caused by the negligence of others – something that is unfortunately all too common in today’s world.

More than that, many of the injuries are catastrophic in nature – meaning that they involve a sudden, great damage or suffering to the person impacted. There are a number of different catastrophic injuries that someone might experience, all of which are more than worth a closer look.

What You Need to Know About Catastrophic Injuries: Breaking Things Down

One of the most common types of catastrophic injuries that someone could experience is called a traumatic brain injury, otherwise referred to as a TBI. There are a few different levels of TBI including mild, moderate, and severe.

An example of a mild TBI is a concussion – which can be caused not just by a direct blow to the head, but by your head moving in a sudden and rapid fashion. This is particularly common in rear-end collisions.

In the case of a severe brain injury, your ability to communicate may be impacted and your ability to function is in jeopardy. Whenever we work with a client who has had a severe TBI at Mandell Trial Lawyers, we work with various professionals in order to help us evaluate and assist these clients. Just a few of those professionals include but are not limited to speech therapists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, and neuropsychologists.

Another type of catastrophic injury involves some type of injury to the spine. This can cause lifelong disabilities and situations like a herniated disc, which is where the cushioning between the vertebrae or the bones in your spine is pushed outward, thus hitting the nerve.

Sometimes, this type of injury can heal on its own. Other times someone will need injections or even surgery – pointing to a situation that can have lifelong ramifications.

In all of those cases, your ability to function and even enjoy certain hobbies or sports activities that you used to love can permanently be in jeopardy – which is why we pledge to do whatever it takes to help you get the justice you deserve.
