What is Considered a Catastrophic Injury?

While most injuries cause physical suffering and some degree of distress, catastrophic injuries are those that have severe, long-lasting, life-altering effects.

Common examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Paralysis
  • Paraplegia
  • Quadriplegia
  • Severe burns
  • Amputation
  • Loss of eyesight

These injuries not only involve intense physical pain and suffering at the outset, but generally result in serious, life-long consequences and lifestyle changes as well. Catastrophic injuries can be particularly devastating for children who usually have special needs and whose cases deserve special attention.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

One of the most common types of catastrophic injury is traumatic brain injury (TBI). According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), TBIs affect more than 1.4 million people every year, or an estimated two percent of the U.S. population.

TBIs can cause a wide variety of effects, including the impairment of:

  • Cognitive ability
  • Language/speech
  • Sensation
  • Emotions

Fighting for fair compensation for these types of injuries, which can range from mild to severe, is typically a complex process that requires the proactive involvement of both a catastrophic injury attorney and the injured victim or family members.

Traumatic Injury of the Spinal Cord

Another common catastrophic injury involves traumatic injury of the spinal cord. The overwhelming majority of spinal cord injuries are caused by motor vehicle collisions. These types of injuries, including partial paralysis, paraplegia and quadriplegia, can be debilitating and can have life-long effects ranging from pressure sores and respiratory complications to spasticity and scoliosis.

Fighting for Fair Recovery on Your Behalf

The financial impact of long-term care for one of these or other types of catastrophic injuries can easily exceed millions of dollars, yet the long-term implications for such injuries are often not readily apparent. Anyone suffering a catastrophic injury deserves an attorney that understands these complex and often delicate issues.

Any settlement of a catastrophic injury claim must take into account a multitude of complex factors, including compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Future surgeries
  • Future medical or nursing care
