Any injury to a Pompano Beach resident or visitor due to an accident can cause problems, discomfort, medical bills, and lost wages.

A catastrophic injury is a very serious injury that causes permanent injury or damage. They have long-term implications and generally change the lives of victims forever. A catastrophic injury includes anything that is debilitating, disfiguring or that causes a permanent deformity. For example, a brain or spinal cord injury, a disfiguring burn, amputations, or severe breaks that cannot heal properly are all considered catastrophic injuries because they leave a person vastly different than they were before the accident. Some catastrophic injuries ultimately cause the death of the victim.
Catastrophic injuries often result in high medical bills. Victims of these serious injuries can require numerous surgeries and ongoing care from doctors, extensive physical rehabilitation, or even live-in care givers. They may require modifications to their homes or specialized medical equipment such as wheelchairs, and they may need to take medications.
Victims of catastrophic injuries also may lose the ability to work, either short term or long term. Some of those injured may not be able to return to work.
Additionally, victims of catastrophic accidents can suffer emotional damage and physical pain from the accident.
Catastrophic injuries can happen from any accident. A car or truck accident, motorcycle accident, slip and fall, electrical shock, or many other types of accidents can result in catastrophic injuries in Pompano Beach. They can happen in a home, office, store, medical building, mall, restaurant or anywhere else. In other words, no one is immune from a catastrophic injury.Frankl & Kominsky Can Help
