Common Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Although there are different types of catastrophic injuries, almost all of them require life-long treatments that can be too costly for the average family. For example, victims who suffer an amputation or paralysis may have to pay for prosthetics and equipment to accommodate their injuries. People who suffer those injuries may also lose their careers, which means their only source of income will no longer be available to them.
Different types of catastrophic injuries include:
- Acoustic Trauma: This type of injury can cause severe hearing disabilities that are permanent and life-changing. There is usually damage caused to the hearing mechanisms within the inner ear.
- Blunt Force Trauma: This type of injury occurs when an object strikes a specific region of the body, often on the head. This is the initial trauma that develops into more specific types, such as contusions, abrasions, lacerations, and bone fractures.
- Brain Injuries: Trauma to the head or a lack of oxygen to the brain can cause serious and permanent damage that affects a person's memory, cognitive skills, speech, personality, and ability to perform normal, day-to-day tasks.
- Burns, Scarring and Disfigurement Injuries: A severe burn is characterized by the destruction of the skin through all skin layers and possibly into bone or muscle. This type can lead to severe pain and permanent disfigurement.
- Neck and Back Injuries: These types of injuries can cause paralysis or other forms of lifelong disability.
- Neurological Injuries: Neurological injuries can affect both cognitive abilities and physical mobility. It can also cause localized pain, tenderness, and stiffness.
- Spinal Cord Injuries: A spinal cord injury causes permanent loss of strength, sensation, and function below the site of the injury. This at minimum results in limb dysfunction. Spinal cord injuries usually require extensive medical treatment.
- Vision Loss & Eye Injuries: This can result in permanent vision loss and is one of the most common injuries in the workplace.
