What is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is the most serious type of injury and accident victim can experience. It is a life-altering medical condition, resulting in long-term or permanent disability or disfigurement. There is a wide range of what can be considered catastrophic or semi-catastrophic. Some examples include, among others:
- Brain Injury – sometimes called Traumatic Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injuries – can result in paralysis that can range from a limb to complete body paralysis from the neck or waist down (quadriplegia and paraplegia)
- Loss of a limb – amputation
- Loss of vision – total or partial blindness or other eye injuries
- Loss of hearing – total or partial
- Types of nerve damage
- Burns over a large portion of the body, resulting in scarring and disfigurement
- Multiple bone fractures
Potential Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
These injuries result from a wide variety of accidents and circumstances. Motor vehicle, truck and pedestrian collisions are a major cause of catastrophic injuries. But the causes can be from medical mistakes, gun violence, defects on premises or land, work accidents, sports events and more. Blunt force trauma from a car accident can cause a brain injury. Crush injuries from work related events can result in loss of a limb. Many times the accidents that cause such injuries are ones that could have been avoided if proper safety precautions/procedures had been taken, or if defects had been repaired.
