What is a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury is a severe injury that typically results in long-term or permanent disabilities and functional impairments. These injuries often require extensive medical treatment and ongoing care, including rehabilitative therapy, home modifications, and other accommodations.

Some of the most common types of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Amputations: The loss of a limb or extremity, often due to trauma or surgical necessity.
  • Burn injuries: Severe burns can cause extensive damage to skin, tissue, and sometimes internal organs, leading to long-term physical and psychological effects.
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI): These occur when external forces cause damage to the brain. TBIs can range from mild concussions to severe brain trauma, often resulting in cognitive, physical, and emotional impairments.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Damage to the spinal cord can lead to paralysis, loss of sensation, and other neurological impairments. The extent of the disability depends on the location and severity of the injury.
  • Paralysis: Paralysis can result from spinal cord injuries, brain injuries, or other trauma, leading to the loss of motor function in one or more parts of the body.
  • Disfigurement: Severe trauma or burns can cause disfigurement, altering a person's appearance and often resulting in emotional distress and social challenges.
  • Multiple bone fractures: Fractures involving multiple bones, particularly those affecting weight-bearing bones or joints, can cause long-term disability and complications.
  • Organ damage: Trauma or injury to internal organs, such as the liver, kidneys, or lungs, can lead to significant health complications and may require surgery or ongoing medical treatment.
  • Hearing loss: Exposure to loud noises, trauma, or other factors can result in partial or complete hearing loss, affecting communication and quality of life.
  • Vision loss: Damage to the eyes or optic nerves can cause partial or complete vision loss, impacting independence and daily functioning.

Many people who suffer catastrophic injuries are unable to return to work and, in some cases, are unable to live independently. They often require full-time care and assistance with their daily needs, which can be physically, emotionally, and financially taxing for their families.

What Compensation is Available for Catastrophic Injuries?

Victims of catastrophic injuries are often entitled to significant compensation for their economic and non-economic damages. In some cases, they may also be entitled to punitive damages.

Some of the most common types of damages available in a catastrophic injury case include:

  • Emergency medical expenses
  • Costs of ongoing and future medical treatment
  • Lost income and benefits
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Physical pain and suffering
  • Mental and emotional anguish
  • Permanent disability and disfigurement
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of consortium/companionship
