What Accidents Lead to Catastrophic Injuries?

What Accidents Lead to Catastrophic Injuries?

Although all injuries are serious, some are considered catastrophic. Catastrophic injuries aren’t like common injuries that heal over time--they have life-altering consequences that drastically affect a person. Unfortunately, catastrophic injuries like traumatic brain injuries, or burn injuries, can be sustained in many different types of accidents. Our Houston catastrophic injury attorneys explain what accidents lead to catastrophic injuries.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most common factors that lead to catastrophic injuries. Accidents like multi-vehicle collisions, truck accidents, or motorcycle accidents often result in spinal cord injuries, amputation, burn injuries, and more. Most auto accidents occur as a result of someone else’s negligent behavior. Drivers who have low reaction times often cause the most damage. Drunk driving, distracted driving, and reckless driving are common causes of motor vehicle accidents that often result in catastrophic injuries.

Slip & Fall Accidents

Many people have the misconception that slip and fall accidents only cause minor scrapes and bruises. However, slip and fall accidents can result in catastrophic or even fatal injuries. The most dangerous slip and fall accidents occur at construction sites or facilities that have a careless property owner. Both employers and property owners have a responsibility to keep their buildings safe to prevent slip and fall accidents. Slip and fall accidents, especially from an altitude, can result in spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and more.

Fires & Explosions

Another common type of accident that often leads to catastrophic injuries includes fire and explosion accidents. Fire and explosion accidents most often occur at plants and refineries. Since industrial workers work with flammable hazards on a daily basis, a simple mistake from an employer or co-worker can result in a serious accident. These types of accidents often cause serious burn injuries or loss of vision.

If you suffered catastrophic injuries in an accident caused by another person’s negligence, you might be entitled to seek compensation for your injuries.
