Santa Rosa Serious Injury Lawyer
COMPENSATION FOR CATASTROPHIC INJURIES
Serious injuries happen to good people every day in Santa Rosa and across the nation. A car accident, a workplace accident or a dog bite can leave the victim with a catastrophic injury and physical and emotional damage which will last a lifetime. A serious injury such as a back injury or burn injury may keep you off your feet for weeks, months or even permanently. When multiple serious injuries occur at one time, it is called Polytruama. This is an all hands on deck situation for medical personnel and is considered very serious.
You may be unable to work or take care of your children. Your medical expenses for emergency treatment, surgery, rehabilitative care, medication and equipment can spiral out of control. The situation can appear desperate.

SERIOUS INJURIES: CAUSES AND CONSEQUENCES
Catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, severe burns and crushed or severed limbs can occur in any accident, but certain types are more common. For example, motor vehicle accidents including car crashes, motorcycle accidents and trucking collisions are the cause of 46% spinal cord injuries and 17.3% of traumatic brain injuries, while slip and falls account for 35.2% of cases of TBI and 22% of SCI cases, according to information provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The financial impact of suffering a serious injury can be devastating: the CDC estimates that an SCI will cost between $15,000 and $30,000 every year in medical treatment- not to mention lost income due to disability- and up to $3 million over the course of a lifetime.
