A catastrophic injury is generally considered any injury resulting in severe permanent disability. Catastrophic injuries can be caused by many different types of incidents, and the consequences of them can last a lifetime. Some of the most common catastrophic injuries include amputations, spinal cord injuries, brain injuries or “TBI”, burns, organ damage, paralysis, paraplegia, and quadriplegia. These cause victims extreme physical and emotional pain and suffering. These injuries usually require aggressive and prolonged medical treatment and often leave the victims unable to work.
Because of the cost of medical care and the inability to work and pay for their care, catastrophic injury victims usually experience severe financial hardship. Catastrophic injuries not only affect the injured victim, but also affect the victim’s family, who end up caring for their loved ones.
