What is a Catastrophic Injury?

Although there is no set definition of a “catastrophic injury,” any injury that results in significant and/or permanent impairment of an important bodily function, system, organ, or member is generally considered “catastrophic.”

Catastrophic injuries are those that result in severe and often permanent physical, cognitive, or emotional impairments. These injuries can include spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, amputations, severe burns, and more. The impact of such injuries extends far beyond physical pain and suffering, affecting victims’ ability to work, enjoy life, and maintain relationships. If you accidentally hit someone on a bike and they sustain a catastrophic injury, it is essential to seek legal representation that understands the profound implications and can fight for the compensation needed to cope with the long-term consequences.

Some Examples of Catastrophic Injuries Include: 

  • Amputation
  • Brain injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Burn injuries
  • Disfigurement
  • Hearing damage
  • Internal organ damage
  • Loss of vision
  • Nerve damage
  • Paralysis
  • Spinal cord injuries

These and other catastrophic injuries necessitate extensive medical treatment and ongoing care. Some individuals may even need lifelong assistance with once-routine tasks. Many will be unable to return to work at full capacity or at all, meaning they will suffer significant loss of income and face additional financial hardship on top of expensive medical bills.
