Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

Common causes of catastrophic injuries are traffic collisions, faulty product, dangerous conditions or workplace accidents. Catastrophic accidents are often at least partially the responsibility of one or more parties that have exhibited negligence to some degree.

Costs associated with a catastrophic accident are not only those associated with hospital bills and the like, but also those employment wages that have been and will be lost due to diminished capacity and such long recuperation times.
