Common Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are life-altering and can impact your physical, emotional, and financial well-being. Following a catastrophic accident, you may have a permanent disability, permanent scarring or disfigurement, or the loss of one or more senses.

Some of the common types of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries: Damage to the spinal cord can cause paralysis, loss of sensation, and loss of bladder and bowel control.
  • Brain Injuries: Sustaining damage to the brain can cause various problems, including memory loss, difficulty concentrating, and personality changes.
  • Amputations: Some injuries can lead to the removal of a limb.
  • Burns: Scarring, disfigurement, and pain are all potential consequences of burns.
  • Head Injuries: Concussions, contusions, and skull fractures are very common in cases involving considerable damage to the head.
  • Internal Injuries: Damaged organs, blood vessels, and other tissues is also considered catastrophic and could permanently impact your health and quality of life.

How Catastrophic Injuries Are Caused

Catastrophic injuries can occur in any situation. They are life-altering events that often cause tremendous physical and emotional damage to victims and their families.

Common causes of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Vehicular Accidents: Car crashes, truck collisions, motorcycle crashes, and bicycle accidents are among the leading causes of catastrophic injury. Victims commonly suffer broken bones, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spinal cord damage, paralysis, burns, and other severe wounds as a result of these types of accidents.
  • Slip and Fall Incidents: Slipping or tripping on a hazardous surface can lead to devastating injuries such as fractured skulls, TBIs, organ damage, paralysis, and more. Injuries sustained in this manner may result in expensive medical bills or even permanent disability.
  • Construction Site Incidents: Construction workers often put themselves at risk for potential harm due to the hazardous nature of the job. Forklift accidents, falling equipment/debris, or faulty lift apparatuses can all lead to catastrophic injury or death.
