What is a "catastrophic injury?"

A catastrophic injury refers to a severe injury to the spine, spinal cord, or brain. According to the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research, catastrophic injuries are associated with three outcomes:

  1. Injuries that cause permanent severe functional disability
  2. Injuries that cause severe head or neck trauma with no permanent disability
  3. Fatality, which may occur directly or indirectly

Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries, which cause permanent functional disability commonly arise in personal injury claims. Due to their nature and severity, such injuries typically incur extensive damages in the form of medical bills, surgery costs, hospital stays, prosthetics, loss of wages, rehabilitative therapy, pain and suffering, and sometimes even damages for emotional or psychological harm.

Common examples of catastrophic injuries:
