The Jackson Missouri Catastrophic Injury attorneys at Aaron Sachs & Associates, P.C. see all too many victims of life destroying accidents in their Cape Girardeau office. In many cases, these devastating injuries are the result of an car crash or semi-truck accident, but can have other causes as well, such as a fall or freak accident.
A catastrophic injury is one that has serious, long term effects, often including the necessity for Social Security Disability benefits. Unfortunately, the Social Security System is notoriously difficult to navigate, frequently requiring assistance from an experienced Cape Girardeau Missouri Social Security Disability law firm.
Here are just some of the various types of Jackson MO catastrophic injuries:
• Spinal Cord Injuries
• Limbs amputated, or the necessity to amputate following the injury itself
• Closed Brain Injuries (also known as traumatic brain injuries)
• Sever (3rd Degree) Burns
• Organ Removal/Transplant
• Paraplegia or Quadriplegia
