A catastrophic injury is generally defined as one so severe that it incapacitates or disables the victim for an extended period of time, or even permanently, and requires long-term care. Such a disaster can take a terrible toll on you and your family financially. A dramatic inability to earn a living, to be mobile and to maintain a desirable quality of life may also lead to emotional and psychological trauma.

Well-versed in all types and degrees of catastrophic injuries

Catastrophic injuries can result from motor vehicle accidents, workplace accidents, construction site accidents, falls from heights, fires, explosions and even criminal attacks. Common types are:

  • Brain injuries — Traumatic brain injuries can be so severe that you are unable to function. They may also result in coma or death.
  • Spinal cord injuries — Harm to the center of the nervous system can cause long-term debilitation and partial or total paralysis.
  • Severe burns — Skin damage from severe burns can require multiple surgeries and specialized care and can result in permanent scarring.
  • Lost limbs — An amputation of an arm, leg, hand, foot or digit can make it extremely difficult or even impossible to function as you did prior to your accident.
  • Internal organ damage — Injuries can lead to dysfunction and possible loss of organs.
  • Loss of sight or hearing — The inability to see or hear after an accident often requires training, rehabilitation and assistance to complete daily tasks.
  • DeathFatal accidents not only cut a life short but often create financial and emotional hardship for the victim’s surviving family members.
