What is Catastrophic Injury?

An injury can be considered catastrophic when there are serious injuries, such as head or spine injuries, fractures, or other injury that requires emergency hospitalization, surgery, or long term medical treatment. It would also be considered catastrophic injury if the victim is disabled from working for a long period of time or disabled from returning to the same work performed prior to the injury. Often, the effects of such injuries and the necessary medical treatment, even with health insurance can be financially devastating or beyond the victim’s ability to pay. 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, bicycle accident, pedestrian accident, trucking accident,,dog attack, or a premises liability accident (such as a fall) or by an uninsured/underinsured driver, 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
