Catastrophic injuries are injuries that have a major, life-changing effect on you. One of the most serious injuries to fall into this category is a spinal cord injury.
A catastrophic injury impacts your life the moment it occurs. Whether it's a broken back, a head injury or other traumatic injury, you'll know it right away. You may have to be rushed into emergency surgery or realize that you can't feel parts of your body when you awaken after a crash.
Catastrophic injuries are so serious that the likelihood of your life ever being the same is extremely low. For some, the impact of those injuries leaves them disabled and unable to do the things they loved. Others struggle with brain injuries, memory loss, problems with sight or issues with hearing.
In a slightly unusual case, a lawsuit has been filed over the violent death of a 33-year-old man who was killed at a house party in Lynnfield. The death occurred in an incident that happened in 2016 at a mansion that had been widely advertised for rent on AirBnB and other places.
A traumatic brain injury requires immediate medical attention. Without this, there's a greater chance that the injury will impact the injured individual for the rest of their life.
