Types of Catastrophic Injuries You Might Have Suffered
A catastrophic injury is one that impacts you to such a degree that you cannot return to life as normal, even after a reasonable healing time. Many victims of traumatic injuries suffer permanent or long-lasting effects up to and including disability. They often cannot return to work at all, let alone at the same capacity as before. They may require extensive and regular medical care for months or years into the future. They might even have to install modifications in their homes, such as wheelchair ramps or an elevator.
The costs of treating and living with a catastrophic injury can be substantial, and if someone else’s actions are the reason you got hurt—they should have to bear those costs, not you. At The Cochran Firm – Nashville, we hold negligent parties liable for injuring our clients. We pursue them and their insurance companies and help you recover damages.
Our Nashville catastrophic injuries lawyers want to help you if you or someone you love suffered any of the following types of injuries:
Traumatic Brain Injuries and Other Head Injuries
Life after a traumatic brain injury (TBI) often looks much different than it did before. Victims may have to learn basic skills all over again, such as walking, talking, eating, dressing, and tying their shoes. Mayo Clinic reports that speech impediments and memory loss are common. Victims may find themselves frustrated at tasks that require deep or extended concentration, making it difficult to function at many types of jobs.
If you suffered a traumatic brain injury, severe concussion, or other head injury because of someone else’s negligence or wrongful actions, we can help you hold the liable party accountable to recover compensation.
Spinal Damage and Paralysis
According to the Mayo Clinic, a spinal injury can lead to severe and permanent disability up to and including paralysis. The spine transports nerve signals from your brain to the rest of your body. Something as simple as lifting a glass to your lips and taking a sip requires high-level communication between your brain, arm, fingers, and mouth. Your spine serves as the messenger that makes this communication possible.
When the spine is compromised, this communication breaks down and nerve signals have trouble getting to their destination. As a result, actions that were second nature before your injury become difficult to impossible.
We will help you hold the person or persons who caused your spinal injury accountable. Our Nashville catastrophic injuries lawyers want to take them on and help you get paid.
Loss of Limbs
If you lost a limb because of a catastrophic injury, you may have to relearn a host of tasks, including basic daily living activities. This process is not only frustrating but costly, as it may require the help of medical professionals—including physical and occupational therapists.
Loss of Eyesight or Hearing
Loss of certain senses—such as sight or hearing—qualifies as a catastrophic injury, as it impacts your life in a significant way going forward. We will make sure those responsible for your loss are held liable.
Not all catastrophic injuries are visible from the outside. Some injuries lead to internal damage, such as to the lungs, kidneys, or spleen. No matter how you were injured or what body parts or functions were affected, The Cochran Firm – Nashville will fight for your rights.
We will make sure that the parties who caused your injury pay any related costs. Call (615) 651-7451 to speak to a team member from The Cochran Firm – Nashville.

Causes of Traumatic Injuries
People suffer catastrophic injuries in a litany of ways, from the commonplace to the bizarre. The important thing to remember (no matter how your injury occurred) is that, if someone else’s actions caused or contributed to it—they should be held liable. This means that the other party (and possibly their insurance company) should pay for the trauma they caused you.
At The Cochran Firm – Nashville, our catastrophic injury lawyers take on the responsible party or parties and fight for the compensation you deserve, no matter how your injury happened.
We have helped clients win compensation for catastrophic injuries suffered due to the following and more:
- Car Accidents: Car accidents can cause major bodily injury and death. We can help you pursue action if you were hurt in a crash.
- Falls: Falls (while innocuous-sounding) can cause severe injury and death, especially in the very old and the very young—as affirmed by research compiled by Purdue University.
- Work Injuries: If you were catastrophically injured at work, we can pursue several courses of action to get you the money you may be entitled to receive.
- Intentional Acts of Violence: If your injury resulted from an intentionally violent act, we can help you pursue a civil claim against the responsible party—even if they manage to escape a criminal conviction.
We want to help you regardless of what kind of accident you suffered.
