What is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury is an injury so severe that it can cause permanent disability and/or the need for long-term medical treatment or physical therapy. These injuries can result from virtually any kind of accident.
Common catastrophic injuries include:
- Brain or head trauma
- Spinal cord or neck injuries
- Severe burn injuries
- Amputations or loss of use of limbs
- Organ damage
- Loss of senses, such as hearing or eyesight
Head and brain injuries are one of the most common types of catastrophic injuries, and they can have serious short and long-term impact on the victim’s abilities, including the ability to enjoy day-to-day activities or work full time. Many victims of catastrophic injuries have to be put into a coma or require amputations and surgeries.
Common Accidents Resulting in Catastrophic Injuries
There are countless possible causes of catastrophic injuries. Even car accidents that seem to cause only whiplash-like symptoms can actually cause traumatic brain injury or paralysis, for example.
Although any incident can cause serious injuries, some of the most common accidents we’ve seen that caused serious injuries include:
- Workplace accidents
- Truck/18-wheeler accidents
- Falls and trips
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Construction accidents
- Defective medical devices or drugs
- Medical mistakes
It’s important to note that truck accidents nearly always cause catastrophic injuries due to their sheer size and weight. Construction and oilfield accidents also commonly cause serious injuries because of the inherent dangerous nature of the industry, which often places workers in positions of danger by cutting corners and trying to save money.
Lasting Costs Associated with Catastrophic Injuries
While all injuries can be expensive to treat, catastrophic injuries tend to be far more costly, as they can require lifelong care and treatment.
Some costs associated with supporting a person with catastrophic injuries include:
- Emergency medical expenses such as ambulance rides, surgeries, and hospital stays
- Continuing medical care, including medical equipment and physical or occupational therapy
- Nursing or home care
- Lost wages or diminished earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
