Catastrophic Injury Defined
A catastrophic injury is defined as an injury that is so serious that it leaves the victim with permanent damage. Catastrophic injuries can have devastating impacts on your life and the lives of loved ones. These injuries can be sustained in many ways and often result in the need for surgery or long-term care. Catastrophic injuries can include:
The financial impact of these injuries can be great. If you or a loved one has sustained a catastrophic injury, you may be entitled to compensation to help cover the financial cost to help cover medical bills, loss of income, and more.
What Causes a Catastrophic Injury?
A variety of accidents can lead to catastrophic injuries. Generally, the more severe an accident is, the more serious the injury may be. However, even seemingly minor accidents – such as falling off a bike due to a defective part – can cause a life-changing brain injury.
Other incidents that can cause catastrophic injuries include:
- Car, motorcycle, & truck accidents
- Bike & pedestrian accidents
- Boating accidents
- Workplace incidents
- Tourist accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Defective products
