Seeking Compensation for Catastrophic Injuries Sustained in Oklahoma Car Accidents

By Car Accident Help on September 5, 2012

There are many different injuries that are classified as catastrophic because of the long-lasting effects they have on the victim’s quality of life. Some of the most common catastrophic injuries that can result from an Oklahoma car crash include spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, and burn injuries.

The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that transmits messages from the brain down the spine throughout the body. A complete spinal cord injury is when the cord is severed and an incomplete injury is when the cord is damaged but not cut. In either case, the victim can suffer from paralysis, loss of feeling, loss of physical ability, and other serious conditions that may never improve.

Whenever someone strikes his or her head during a crash, there is the potential for a traumatic brain injury to occur. Even a relatively mild TBI can result in permanent injuries. In severe cases, the victim can suffer from significant memory issues, paralysis, issues with communicating, and an inability to focus. Burn injuries can occur when a vehicle catches fire. A catastrophic burn injury is when a significant portion of the skin is burned. These types of injuries can result in permanent scarring, loss of feeling, disfiguration, and an increased risk of infection.

Amputation injuries are considered catastrophic because the victim’s condition is permanent. Victims of Oklahoma car accidents have been known to sustain amputations of toes, feet, arms, legs, fingers, and hands. Amputations can result from a medical necessity to save the victim’s life or from a traumatic collision.

The Oklahoma catastrophic injury lawyers at Maples Law Firm have a long history of helping victims of catastrophic injuries get fair compensation for their losses. We provide no-cost consultations at (888) 226-6159 to anyone that has suffered a serious injury in an Oklahoma car accident.
