Skilled NYC Catastrophic Injury Attorneys

It only takes a moment for an accident to occur and a life-altering serious injury to be the result. Even seemingly small accidents can have devastating consequences that may include permanent injury, disability or death. The New York City law firm of Paul B. Weitz & Associates, PC, can take on complex New York personal injury cases when it comes to catastrophic injuries suffered by you or a loved one.

For an injury to be considered catastrophic, there are three criteria that most medical professionals use for their diagnosis:

  1. Fatality that may result in a wrongful death claim
  2. Severe and permanent damage resulting in a lifelong disability
  3. Serious head and spinal injuries that can heal over time

Types Of Trauma That May Result In Catastrophic Injuries

An accident or injury to yourself or a loved one may result in, or progress toward, a permanent or temporary disability. These often need costly medical treatment and extensive rehabilitation. Catastrophic injuries can occur from a range of direct or indirect circumstances, including, but not limited to:

  • Trauma during an activity, sport or accident
  • Brain injury or injuries to the head, such as fracturing a skull
  • Spine or spinal cord paralysis, issues or fractures
  • Indirect injuries from physical exertion
  • Heat illness, dehydration or heart issues
  • Undiagnosed cardiovascular conditions
  • Complications from other injuries or conditions
  • Amputation from an accident or medical complication
