Accidents can happen at home, at work or anywhere in between. The resulting injuries can be minor or severe. Severe or major injuries are often referred to as catastrophic because they have the potential to cause problems that can affect a victim’s employment, health, and lifestyle. They can cause short-term or long-term disabilities that make a person dependent on wheelchairs, crutches, or walkers to get around. Catastrophic injuries can be a result of a slip and fall accident, automobile crash, medical malpractice, or another unfortunate incident that results from another’s negligence or recklessness. When you sustain a catastrophic injury in New Jersey, you need to contact a New Jersey Personal Injury Lawyer with offices in Howell, Oakhurst, and Toms River.
