What is a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury is an injury so severe that it causes long-term—if not permanent—and life-changing damage to a person.

According to 42 U.S.C. § 3796b, the legal definition of a catastrophic injury is an injury in which “the direct and proximate consequences…permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work.”

Without being able to hold a job, catastrophic injury victims are especially in need of a large personal injury settlement to cover their costly and ongoing medical expenses.

Types of Catastrophic Injuries

Considering that a catastrophic injury is so broadly defined, it can come in many forms. However, this type of serious injury generally comes in one of three categories: physical injuries, spinal cord injuries, and cognitive injuries.

Physical injuries tend to affect a person’s orthopedic function or body tissue. Spinal cord injuries cause permanent mobility issues. Cognitive injuries arise from brain damage, which can affect a person’s ability to work, speak, or retain new memories.

Some of the most common examples of catastrophic injuries are:

  • Quadriplegia
  • Paraplegia
  • Paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Severe fractures
  • Loss of limb
  • Third- and fourth-degree burns
  • Organ damage

Living with a Catastrophic Injury

Catastrophic injuries have a devastating impact on a victim’s life, as well as on the lives of anyone close to them. Survivors of such injuries often can’t work, let alone perform daily tasks without the assistance of a family member or live-in caregiver. They may also require specialized treatment, ongoing physical therapy, and mental health resources to treat their depression and/or cognitive issues. Additionally, catastrophic injury victims may require equipment such as a wheelchair and ramps to get around. All of these things add up quickly, which is why it is essential to get a qualified and empathetic lawyer on your side to ensure you receive compensation for everything you need.

There are three main types of damages you can be compensated for after suffering a catastrophic injury:

  • Medical expenses, which cover physical therapy, surgeries, medications, and more
  • Lost wages to make up for you having to quit your job
  • Pain and suffering, which includes the emotional damage you have endured
