What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is an injury that significantly impairs a victim’s health, independence, and livelihood. They are often permanent and sometimes require medical treatment or therapy for the rest of a person’s life. Catastrophic injuries are, in a word, life-altering.
Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries take many different forms. Some are strictly physical and impact mobility and comfort. Catastrophic injuries that impact the brain can affect cognition and a person’s ability to think, reason, and speak. In both cases, the injury results in significantly diminished quality of life.
Here are some examples of injuries that may be considered catastrophic:
- Brain injuries
- Paralysis and other spinal cord injuries
- Severe burns
- Disfiguring injuries
- Significant bone fractures
- Organ damage
- Vision or hearing impairment
Not all catastrophic injuries result in permanent disabilities. However, most require extensive medical intervention and may take months or even years to heal.
