Some injuries are so serious that they change a person’s life. A catastrophic injury can result in hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills or may even reach into the millions of dollars for lifelong medical care. The injury may cost the victim his or her livelihood, self-esteem, and quality of life and may result in lasting physical pain and suffering.

What Makes an Injury Catastrophic?
Injuries are considered catastrophic when the injury causes permanent damage that prevents the victim from performing any gainful employment – in other words, the victim is no longer able to support him or herself and his/her family. Catastrophic injuries can affect a person’s mobility and/or may result in cognitive impairments that make it extremely difficult or impossible for them to work in the same capacity they once did. While some catastrophic injury victims may be able to learn new skills that fit their current limitations through expensive career retraining, many more are unable to maintain any new employment at all.
Catastrophic injuries also come with a host of other consequences. Many seriously injured people can no longer enjoy their favorite hobbies, travel, exercise, or care for themselves without help. Because of this, many catastrophic injury victims also suffer from depression and other mental health issues.
Examples of catastrophic injuries include:
- Severe burn injuries
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Loss of eyesight or hearing
- Organ damage
- Multiple bone fractures
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
