Types of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries can result in a permanent disability. Some common examples of catastrophic injuries include:

Loss of a limb


Traumatic brain injury

Vision loss

These injuries are likely to require extensive medical care, surgeries, therapy, and more. They can also result in the loss of the victim’s job and may make it difficult or impossible to find a position that can maintain his or her quality of life. This can place an extreme financial burden on both the victim and his or her family. Additionally, a catastrophic injury can cause depression and other behavioral changes in the victim. This can make life all the more difficult for the victim and his or her family.
