What is a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries are physical injuries that are so harmful they have an irreversible impact on the quality of an individual's life. Common examples of catastrophic injury include:
- Traumatic brain injury: The disruption of normal function means that traumatic brain injury victims may suffer short-term or long-term cognitive, behavioral, psychological, or physical impairment. Motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries. Other common causes include slip-and-fall accidents, physical assault, and construction site accidents.
- Spinal cord injury: Victims of spinal cord injuries can face a lifetime of permanent disability and paralysis, most often caused by a traumatic impact that fractures the spinal cord. Similar to brain injuries, motor vehicle accidents are the number one cause of spinal cord injuries, and are responsible for nearly half of all incidents.
- Birth injury: Injuries sustained during birth can affect a child for the rest of their life. Common birth injuries include cerebral palsy, Erb’s palsy, hydrocephalus, seizures, developmental delays, and more.
- Burn injury: Burns can cause ongoing and excruciating pain, scarring, loss of mobility, risk of infection and amputation, and nerve, muscle, and tissue damage. Burn injuries usually require years of physical therapy and multiple surgeries to help a victim achieve a reasonable level of comfort and mobility.
Sadly, catastrophic injuries can be caused in countless ways. The best way to determine whether your unique situation can be classified as a catastrophic injury is to seek the advice of an experienced lawyer.
