Life Altering Injury

In personal injury law, there is a subset of injuries so severe they can only be described as life altering. A life altering injury is a catastrophic, usually permanent, injury involving the loss of the use of a bodily system or function. Life altering injuries often require long-term medical care, including multiple surgeries, ongoing hospital stays, rehab and/or full-time assistance.
