What defines a “serious” injury in Philadelphia?
The reality is that injuries occur all the time in and around the Philadelphia area, but not all of them are considered serious. When we are talking about a “serious” injury, we are discussing injuries that would be considered catastrophic in nature. The words“serious” and “catastrophic” are descriptors used to define injuries that occur when a person loses a vital part of their being.
Some of the most common injuries that would be considered catastrophic or serious in the Philadelphia area would include the following:
- Spinal cord injuries with paralysis
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Catastrophic nerve damage
- Amputations or the loss of a limb
- Significant burn injuries
- Major scarring and disfigurement
- Birth injuries caused by a medical error
- …and more
Some of the consequences that serious injuries have on victims include a loss of cognitive function, the loss of the ability to walk, the loss of fine motor skills, hearing or vision loss, or some other vital loss of a person’s ability to carry out their day-to-day activities.
