Catastrophic Injury – Phoenix Injury Attorney – Arizona

Catastrophic Injuries - Arizona Injury Attorneys - Arizona Burg SimpsonCatastrophic injuries, as defined by the American Medical Association, are any wounds “to the spine, spinal cord, or brain, and can include a skull or spinal fractures.” The National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research bases these injuries on three additional outcome criteria:

  • Fatality
  • Permanent severe functional disability
  • Severe head or neck trauma without permanent disability

Burg Simpson, a Phoenix personal injury law firm, represents anyone who has suffered a catastrophic injury. We have over 40 years of experience fighting for victims’ rights to compensation. If you or a loved one has suffered a catastrophic injury, fill out a Free Case Evaluation form or call Burg Simpson in Arizona at 602-777-7000 to speak with a Phoenix accident lawyer.

Any number of activities can lead to a catastrophic injury. Whether it is a car accident, a fall from a ladder, or a birth injury, the potential for catastrophic injury surrounds our everyday lives. But, according to the National Center for Catastrophic Sports Injuries, three sports activities are particularly deadly.

  • Football: Youth football players face the highest incidence of traumatic brain and spinal cord injuries, sending roughly 62,000 kids to the hospital every year, most often with concussions.
  • Cheerleading: While not technically a sport, cheerleading is particularly dangerous for the half a million cheerleaders who participate every year. Falls send about 37,000 cheerleaders to the ER annually. While not all of these injuries serious or life-threatening, cheerleading is still the second leading cause of catastrophic injuries for all high school athletic activities.
  • Ice Hockey: Despite all of the hard-hitting action that takes places in ice hockey, slips and falls account for more injuries in hockey, while concussions make up about 13 percent of the sport’s injuries.

If a family member has been seriously injured in an accident, get in touch with an Arizona injury lawyer as soon as possible by calling our Burg Simpson Arizona office at 602-777-7000.
