What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injury is a term that is used to describe an accident that severely injures the victim. These injuries often result in long term, or permanent, disability or disfigurement. There is a very long-term recovery process and the injured person may even require lifetime care.
The extreme injuries that fall under this category include:
- Traumatic brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Loss of a limb
- Total paralysis
- Other types of disfigurement
After this type of injury, it is common for the victim to be unable to return to work.
