Catastrophic injuries are personal injuries that permanently alter a person’s life. As the name suggests, these injuries are catastrophic.
They are often so damaging that a person never fully recovers. Be it confinement to a wheelchair or loss of a limb, this category of personal injury is large, and many times the events causing the injury could have easily been avoided if the proper safety precautions had been taken and the rules followed.
Above all else, the common characteristic and truth of all catastrophic injury is the profound impact it has on the life of the victim and his or her loved ones. Examples of catastrophic injury include:
- Brain Injuries – Traumatic Brain Injury (“TBI”)
- Burn Injuries
- Paralysis (Quadriplegic/Paraplegic)
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Loss of limbs and Amputations
