Types of Severe Injuries

A catastrophic injury involves serious bodily harm that results in disfigurement, long-term or permanent disability, and major financial repercussions. In addition to any immediate medical treatment that is necessary, victims may also require ongoing rehabilitation, accommodations for disabilities, and treatment for the emotional trauma they have experienced. These injuries are likely to impact a person's ability to earn an income, and when added to large and continuing medical bills, this is likely to put a family in dire financial straits.

Severe and catastrophic injuries may include:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI) - Concussions and other types of brain injuries can cause impairment to a person's cognitive functions, memory, muscle coordination, and mood. This can affect a victim's ability to work, their personal relationships, and their overall health and well-being. 
  • Spine injury - Injuries to the neck or back can damage the spinal cord, which can lead to partial or complete paralysis including paraplegia and quadraplegia.
  • Burn injuries - Severe burns can be incredibly painful, and they can often lead to permanent disfigurement, nerve damage, and long-lasting emotional trauma.
  • Amputation - Injuries to the limbs may result in the complete loss of fingers, arms, or legs. Victims may need to use prosthetic limbs or other assistive devices, and they will likely require extensive physical therapy.
  • Eye injuries - Any injuries which result in blindness or the loss of vision are likely to affect a victim's earning capacity and their daily mobility.
  • Bone and joint injuries - Shattered bones, compound fractures, and extensive damage to joints such as shoulders, knees, or hips can be painful and debilitating. These injuries often require surgery, and victims will likely have a long and difficult recovery process.
