Catastrophic Injury Attorney in Panama City
What constitutes a catastrophic injury?
Generally speaking, a catastrophic injury is any one which causes devastating
physical damage and which results in some form of disability or severe
disfigurement. It is a life-changing injury from which the victim will
never fully recover. Florida Statutes §766.118 defines "catastrophic
injuries" as including spinal cord injuries which result in severe
paralysis, amputation of a limb, traumatic brain injury which results
in severe sensory, motor or cognitive disturbances, second and third degree
burns covering 25% or more of the body or third degree burns which cover
5% or more of the face or hands, blindness or loss of the reproductive organs.

What types of accidents cause catastrophic injuries?

injuries, but certain ones are recognized as being particularly dangerous.
According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention,

motorcycle accidents are one of the top causes of spinal cord injury and brain injuries, while
