A catastrophic injury may be described as a type of injury that is so severe that it causes a permanent disability or otherwise dramatically changes the life of the victim. Severe burns, amputation, brain injuries, electrical injuries, and spinal cord injuries are examples of catastrophic injuries. They typically require emergency treatment as well as ongoing care, assistive devices, rehabilitative therapies, and more.
Catastrophic injuries may be caused by:
- Motor vehicle accidents, including truck, car, or motorcycle accidents
- Construction site accidents, such as falls, electrocution, or vehicle-related accidents
- Defective and dangerous products, pharmaceutical drugs, and medical devices
- Medical malpractice, including surgical errors, birth injuries, or hospital negligence
- Intentional wrongdoing, such as in physical or sexual assaults
- Hazardous conditions on another’s property
