Catastrophic injuries cause serious harm and have long-term consequences for victims. Many catastrophic injuries result in disfigurement and/or permanent disability, placing a huge burden on the victims’ families because the injured persons require extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation and assistance for the remainder of their lives. These types of injuries often occur without warning. If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, contact Mesa, AZ injury lawyer Nathaniel B. Preston. You may be entitled to compensation for your injury.
Catastrophic Injury Law
Victims have a legal right to make a personal injury claim to recover monetary damages to compensate themselves and/or their families for their losses, if the catastrophic injury was caused by the negligent or intentional act of another person, or was caused by a defective or dangerous product.
Most Common Types of Catastrophic Injuries
- Head injuries/trauma
- Traumatic brain injury, also known as TBI

- Multiple bone fractures
- Injuries to the eye(s)
- Neck and back injuries
- Third-degree burns
