What Constitutes a Catastrophic Injury?
Not all injuries are created equal. Some are more debilitating than others, and in the legal realm, these are known as catastrophic injuries. This refers to injuries so devastating, so serious, and so harmful, the victim is often in a state of permanent damage or disability. These damages can involve either or both a physical handicap, as well as mental incapacitation. Not only is the victim left with a lifetime of costly medical expenses, he or she must also live with the possibility of never working or earning wages again, while coming to terms with the emotional pain and suffering of what he or she has endured.
Generally speaking, these injuries involve one’s brain or head, though they can also be connected to physical harm regarding one’s spinal cord. Common examples also include burns, organ damage, hearing or vision loss, multiple fractures, birth injury, amputation, and more.
