What Is a “Catastrophic Injury”?

A catastrophic injury is any injury that causes permanent damage to a person’s organs and other body parts, and leads to a total disruption of the victim’s ability to work and fully enjoy life. Often, the term “catastrophic injury” is used to describe conditions such as brain injuries, burn injuries, and spinal cord injuries. Although these are common types of catastrophic injuries, a catastrophic injury can include conditions that affect other organs, tissues, bones, and the limbs.

Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries can result from many different types of accidents. Any incident in which the body is subjected to significant trauma can potentially cause an injury that severely debilitates a person.

Catastrophic injuries can be caused by incidents such as:

Brain Injuries

A brain injury is one of the most damaging types of injuries that a person can sustain. Brain injuries that are caused by car accidents and similar incidents are known as traumatic brain injuries. In severe cases, a traumatic brain injury can permanently impact a person’s memory, cognitive ability, decision making skills, mobility, and other brain functions. The victims of brain injuries are entitled to compensation for the extensive pain and suffering and costs that have resulted from their condition.

Burn Injuries

Burn injuries can cause damage to the skin, organs, muscles, and bones. Burn injuries cause significant emotional damage to victims as well. These injuries do not only affect a person's physical wellbeing, but their appearance. By filing a claim, it is possible to recover compensation for the non-economic damages caused by an injury in addition to the financial expenses.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries seriously disrupt a person’s ability to work and participate in activities to their fullest ability. A person who has sustained a spinal cord injury may require surgery, medication, or the use of medical devices to manage their condition. Even with treatment, a spinal cord injury can cause chronic pain and mobility issues. Spinal cord injury victims often need extensive, costly treatment.
