There are many types of injuries that you can suffer in an accident, some of which are more severe than others. If you are involved in a serious car accident, your injuries could range from minor cuts and bruises to severe life-altering catastrophic injuries. A catastrophic injury is one that will afflict or impair you for the rest of your life. It is a permanent injury which will forever affect your life and your family. These kinds of injuries can include:
- Loss of vision or hearing
Catastrophic injuries may include lifelong medical treatment, an inability to work and pain and suffering. If you've suffered a catastrophic injury, like the loss of a limb, you may be entitled to significant compensation.
If you have incurred a paralysis injury then you may also be entitled to significant compensation. Paraplegia occurs when you lose the ability to move your legs, and quadriplegia occurs when you lose the ability to move all of your extremities. These injuries often occur as a result of damage to the spinal cord and central nervous system located in the neck. Whiplash or blunt force trauma can cause damage to this delicate part of the human body and could result in permanent impairment.

"Thank you for the wonderful way you handled my Westerly DUI case. I was very scared when I was charged with a DUI with readings over .15. However, I knew you were the right man for the job when you picked up the phone on a Sunday and put my mind at ease. Thank you so much for everything you did for me!"
