Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 31, 2008 -- Catstrophicinjury.com is a new premier one-stop resource center dedicated to providing information and support for patients, families, and professionals wanting to learn more about the devastating impact of spinal cord injury, traumatic brain injury, and amputation.

The site offers a wealth of information, including medical information, legal information, and a comprehensive list of resources for anyone who has suffered one of these injuries, as well as those who are indirectly affected, such as family members, medical professionals, and legal professionals.

The site is broken down into three separate injury sections. By exploring the appropriate section, visitors to the site can access information on one of the three conditions the site specializes in. Medical information includes information on statistics, diagnosis, anatomy, common surgical treatments, hospitalization, rehabilitation, nutrition, equipment, future health concerns, and medications. The legal sections address legal issues of common concern after a devastating injury, such as compensation, negligence, and legal representation.

A valuable component of the site is the resource sections, which provide access to a wide variety of support services for victims and their families. Resource sections are comprised of links to books, articles, and new research. Addresses and contact information are provided on a state-by-state basis for support groups and rehabilitation hospitals, so that site visitors can click on a map and easily find a group or hospital close to them.

The site also contains a forum for patients, family members, and other interested parties who wish to talk to others whose lives have been impacted by spinal cord, brain, or amputation injuries. The forum can be a powerful tool for those looking for specific information, or simply looking to connect with others who have experienced some of the same physical and emotional issues.

The "What's New" section will provide timely information on new breakthroughs in research, treatments, medications, and therapies for spinal cord injury, brain injury, and amputation. Direct from current news events and headlines, this section will keep site visitors up to date on new and important information as it impacts them.

Catastrophicinjury.com is the first site of its kind to address the issues facing patients of three distinct injury areas that are unique but share common features, specifically the devastation that can be brought to bear by such injuries.
