What Counts as a Catastrophic Injury?

Catastrophic injuries can happen anywhere on the body. However, some injuries occur with more frequency than others.

These injuries include the following:

  • Burn Injuries
    These injuries require an intense period of medical care. Third-degree burns don’t just harm the skin—they can cause lasting damage to the tissues beneath the skin. Common long-term effects of third-degree burns include scarring, respiratory problems, and disfigurement. Victims of burns often have trouble comfortably moving areas of their bodies that have been injured.
  • Blunt Force Trauma
    Blunt force trauma describes a forceful impact to a specific part of the body. If the head is subjected to blunt force trauma, the result can be a catastrophic loss of brain function.
  • Vision Loss
    Accidents that cause loss of vision are devastating as they force the survivor to completely change how they interact with the world.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
    The spinal column houses a crucial collection of nerves that control the body’s ability to move. Trauma to this part of the body can cause loss of mobility or, in the most severe cases, complete paralysis.
  • Acoustic Trauma
    Like the loss of vision, damage to a person’s ability to hear results in a drastic change in career, lifestyle, and prospects.
  • Injuries to the Neck and Back
    As one of the most common work injuries in the United States, these injuries often result from neglect and change a person's ability to comfortably move.

When nerves are damaged, the experience can be extremely painful for the victim. However, pain is not the only repercussion of this type of injury. Nerve damage requires extensive rehabilitation or surgery and, depending on the extent of the damage, can cause permanent issues with mobility.

Seeking Recovery for Catastrophic Injuries

Negligence is the most common reason individuals are forced to seek compensation from another party for their injuries. Negligence occurs when someone does not take the measures required to protect the safety of others. Negligence causes car accidents, workplace accidents, and any other events where someone is responsible for the safety of others.

The following items may be recovered from negligent parties:

  • Past and future medical care
  • Lost wages due to time spent away from work
  • Diminished future earnings
  • Psychological trauma
  • Pain and suffering
