What is Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries are consequences of an injury that are extreme in nature and alter a person’s entire life. Catastrophic injuries can permanently prevent an individual from leading a fulfilling quality of life due to disability and loss of physical or mental function. These types of injuries can occur in motor vehicle crashes, motorcycle crashes, commercial trucking accidents involving semi-trucks, workplace injuries, gas explosion incidents, toxic exposure, medication misfills, and fires. These accidents can change the course of an individual’s life preventing them from obtaining gainful continuing work and employment. These accidents occur suddenly, without warning. Some of the most common catastrophic injuries are related to head trauma, brain injury, organ damage, spinal cord damage, including paralysis, paraplegia, as well as eye injuries and burn injuries.
