CAUSES OF Catastrophic
injuries in myrtle beach

IN AN INJURY CLAIM...

Car Accidents Attorneys Myrtle Beach

Car Accidents

Although passenger cars aren’t the largest vehicles you see on the road, the occupants can suffer catastrophic injuries in an accident. Driver error is a common cause of crashes. When motorists aren’t paying attention to what they’re doing or where they’re going, they’re more likely to collide with another car because they overlook the dangers ahead.

nursing home abuse

Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home residents are vulnerable to catastrophic injuries, such as traumatic brain injury and spinal cord injury. Their frail bodies can’t handle the blunt force of a person kicking or punching them. Additionally, many older adults fall frequently because they cannot ambulate without assistance. They could hit their head on the ground or fall directly onto their back.

truck accident

Truck Accidents

Commercial trucks, such as tractor-trailers, are massive. They can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. All of that weight can cause significant destruction during a collision with a car, bicyclist, or pedestrian. Loss of limbs, paraplegia and traumatic brain injuries commonly occur in accidents involving large trucks.

pedestrian accident

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are at an increased risk of catastrophic injuries and death in collisions with motor vehicles. Since there isn’t anything to protect them, their bodies suffer the full force of the impact. Whether you’re walking through a parking lot, crossing the street, or jogging on the sidewalk, a car could come barreling towards you, resulting in significant physical harm and even death.

Construction Workers Compensation Attorneys

Constructions Accidents

Construction sites are inherently dangerous. Even if you take the necessary safety precautions while performing your job, you could suffer an injury. Using heavy machinery, handling toxic substances, and working at great heights puts your life and health at risk. Catastrophic injuries often result from a serious fall, becoming trapped by a piece of equipment, or exposure to hazardous chemicals.

boat accident

Boat Accidents

Whether you’re the boat operator or a passenger, you could get hurt during a collision with another vessel, be injured in an onboard fire, fall overboard, or slip and fall on deck. Amputation injuries can occur if someone falls overboard and a limb encounters the propeller. Traumatic brain injuries are also common during falls. If you or a loved one has suffered such an injury or death, do not hesitate to contact the well-experienced attorneys of The Yates Firm today. We’re here to help you resolve your case.

medical malpractice

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice occurs when a healthcare professional injures a patient due to negligence. Permanent scarring or disfigurement can result from a doctor’s error during a medical procedure. For example, a surgeon could stitch up an incision incorrectly, causing an ugly scar that doesn’t heal as well as it should. In dramatic and horrible instances, the wrong surgery could be performed on the wrong person or on an incorrect body part and even cause death. Sometimes, the errors aren’t overt and could be a missed or erroneous diagnosis or an inappropriate prescription.

premises liability

Premises Liability

The dangerous conditions on the property someone owns can lead to many accidents. A fire could break out due to faulty wiring, or a guest could fall down the stairs if there isn’t adequate lighting. Catastrophic injuries can happen whether you’re dining at a restaurant, shopping at the mall, or swimming at a public swimming pool.

WHAT SHOULD I DO IF suffered a

catastrophic injury IN MYRTLE BEACH?

01

CALL 911 
Report the accident to law enforcement or complete an incident report yourself. Typically, you can call 911 at the scene of a motor vehicle crash for an officer to investigate and write a police report. Getting hurt on someone’s property or during a medical procedure might require filling out a report with an administrator, so there’s documentation of the incident.

02

GO TO THE HOSPITAL
Catastrophic injuries are often too severe for anyone to drive themselves to the hospital. You should request an ambulance for the transport you need to safely get to the emergency room.

03

ATTEND YOUR DOCTOR’S APPOINTMENTS
Catastrophic injuries often require ongoing medical treatment. Although some people can’t fully recover, physical therapy can improve mobility, prescriptions can manage pain, and surgery can repair internal damage. You should attend all necessary appointments until you heal entirely or your doctors release you from their care.

04

HIRE AN ATTORNEY
Consult an attorney from [firm-name] following the accident. Cases involving catastrophic injuries can be complicated. Recovering compensation from the insurance company or at-fault party isn’t as straightforward as you might think. We can take on the responsibility for the legal process so you can focus on healing.

05

MAINTAIN THE EVIDENCE
Maintain copies of your medical records, bills, and other documents. If your clothing became bloody or torn during the accident, don’t wash or dispose of it. Keep it in the condition it’s in to use as evidence.

06

CONTACT US
If someone else’s negligent actions resulted in your catastrophic injury, call The Yates Firm today. One of our Myrtle Beach catastrophic injury attorneys can discuss the circumstances of the incident with you. We will review the information you provide and determine whether we can represent you.
