Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are usually the result of another’s negligence. These severe and life-altering injuries commonly occur without warning and suddenly. The negligent acts that cause catastrophic injuries can be a result of any number of different circumstances.

Car, tractor trailer, motorcycle, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents are by far the most common cause of all catastrophic injuries. Falls, violent acts, especially those involving a fire arm, medical mistakes and infections, and work related injuries are the other most common causes of catastrophic injuries.
