Many kinds of injuries can result from negligence-based accidents such as car crashes, slip and fall incidents, and more. These injuries can range from minor cases of whiplash to life-threatening injuries such as brain damage. In the most serious cases, injuries can impact a person’s ability to carry out even the most basic actions of daily life, impair their ability to earn an income, and create the need for ongoing rehabilitation, personal assistance, renovations to their homes and/or vehicles, or continuing medical equipment. Because of the severe nature and long-term or permanent consequences, these types of injuries are categorized as “catastrophic.”

More About Catastrophic Injury Cases

Injuries can be considered catastrophic based on their severity, the extent of damage they cause to the individual, and how long or how deeply they affect the person’s life and personal independence. 

Examples of catastrophic injuries can include:

  • Brain injuries. These can include injuries from objects penetrating the skull as well as violent blows to the head that commonly occur upon impact in collisions. Brain injuries can result in many and varied disabilities from reduced cognitive function to personality changes.
  • Spinal cord injuries. These can lead to partial or complete paralysis that can dramatically and permanently affect your life reducing your independence and ability to remain self-supporting while creating the need for ongoing medical care and equipment. 
  • Burn injuries. These require specialized medical treatment, can involve repeated skin grafts, create nerve damage and infection, and result in disfigurement.
