What Are Catastrophic Injuries?
A catastrophic injury is defined as an extremely severe injury to the body, such as to the spinal cord or brain, which may also include skull or spinal fractures. These injuries often result in long-lasting or permanent impairments, affecting an individual's ability to perform daily activities and enjoy a normal quality of life.
Such injuries may result in being unable to engage in one’s normal daily activities, losing earning capacity, compromising intimate relationships, and requiring special medical attention, equipment, or therapies for the long term. Those with permanent disabilities may need daily personal care, renovations to their homes or vehicles, and other accommodations to optimally operate moving forward.
Examples of catastrophic injuries may include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
- Spinal cord injuries (SCI)
- Severe burns
- Multiple bone fractures
- Organ damage
