Types of Catastrophic Injury Claims We Handle
A catastrophic injury is any injury that affects an individual’s ability to “perform gainful work” either long term or for life. While the scope of catastrophic injuries can vary greatly—some victims may remain fairly mobile and active while others may be wheelchair- or bed-bound for life—they tend to affect every aspect of a victim’s life. Not only are these injuries expensive to treat, but they can damage an individual’s self-esteem, mental state, social life, and more.
Our Birmingham catastrophic injury lawyer handles cases involving:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Burns and disfigurement
- Wrongful death claims

Read on to learn more about some of the most common types of catastrophic injuries.
Brain & Spine Injuries
Two of the most common catastrophic injuries are traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) and spine/spinal cord injuries. Both brain and spine injuries can range from mild to severe. In worst cases, they can affect an individual’s ability to move, speak, and perform other everyday functions without live-in care.
Our firm has encountered brain and spine injuries that have resulted from traffic accidents, falls, nursing home neglect and abuse, defective products, and work accidents. If you have suffered a catastrophic brain or spine injury as the result of someone else’s negligence, we will do whatever we can to help you obtain compensation that will cover your medical and other relevant expenses on an ongoing basis so you can live as comfortably as possible.
Effects of severe brain and spine injuries may include:
- Paraplegia, quadriplegia, and other forms of partial or complete paralysis
- Loss of or altered sensation
- Loss of bladder or bowel control
- Changes in sexual function and fertility
- Difficulty breathing
- Vegetative state
- Brain death
