What are Types of Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries differ from other personal injuries in that they are far more severe and life-altering. Victims, and often their family members as well, are unable to live the lives they once did. Catastrophic injuries also typically require ongoing medical treatment and lifelong care.
Some common examples of catastrophic injuries include:
- Brain trauma
- Severe burns
- Spinal cord injuries
- Loss of hearing/vision
- Internal organ damage
- Birth injuries
- Nerve damage
Catastrophic injuries can result from many different types of accidents including car and truck collisions, pedestrian accidents, motorcycle crashes, and more. Even boating accidents, workplace incidents, and defective products can lead to catastrophic injury.
