What is Catastrophic Injury?

An injury can be considered catastrophic when there is severe, life-altering or long-term damage inflicted or if there is substantial medical treatment and expense. Often, the effects of such injuries can be devastating. Medical treatment that may be long-term or intensive can pose devastating threats to your financial well-being. The quality of life for you and your loved ones can be drastically affected by severe injuries and their emotional and monetary repercussions. Whether a catastrophic injury was caused by a car accident, motorcycle accident, trucking accident, property owner negligence (premises liability), or a fall, you and your family deserve to be compensated by the responsible party.

Types of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries can range in severity from injuries that require serious medical procedures to the need for permanent or long-term treatment, home care, and ongoing medical expenses. Families can experience extreme stress because of the ongoing financial, emotional, and medical demands. Circumstances can vary, but the damages caused by catastrophic injuries can last for years, worsen over time, or be permanent. Common catastrophic injuries include:

  • Head injuries
  • Brain damage
  • Neck, back or spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis (paraplegia and quadriplegia)
  • Burns
  • Organ damage
  • Bone Fractures
  • Nerve injuries

Catastrophic injuries can be tragic. There is nothing more tragic, however, than the inability for people to adequately recover or pay for the medical treatment they require.
