We know you are facing many challenges because of your injuries, and we will do all we can to help you move forward.

Some common catastrophic injuries include:

Burns

Burn injuries may occur because of fires, chemical exposure, radiation or electrocution. Third-degree burns damage the skin and the underlying tissues, muscles, bones and organs. Burn victims may require skin grafts and other types of surgeries to restore functionality and mobility. Even after extensive rehabilitation, patients may experience lifelong disabilities, loss of sensation, pain, disfigurement, scarring and rigidity of the affected areas.

Amputation

Amputations can result from industrial accidents involving farm, manufacturing or construction equipment. An accident that results in a crushed limb may require surgical amputation — for example, in the case of a serious motorcycle crash in which the bike lands on the victim’s leg. Advancements in prostheses help amputation victims live normal lives, but these medical devices are expensive and often restrictive. When reattachment of the limb is possible, patients often face multiple surgeries and recurring infections.

Paralysis

The leading causes of spinal cord injuries are motor vehicle accidents, falls, violence and sports. A forceful impact — for instance, an accident involving a commercial truck — can partially or completely damage the vertebrae or spinal cord. The location and extent of paralysis depend on where the damage occurs. Incomplete spinal cord injury will hinder movement and cause pain, weakness, loss of sensation and paralysis of the limbs below the damaged area of the spine. Rehabilitation or treatment may become a lifelong process.
