Catastrophic Injury Defined

Catastrophic injury Lawyer-Samer HabbasDefinition: A catastrophic injury is a permanent or long-lasting debilitating injury that damages at least one body system, typically the central nervous system. Such injuries can result in the loss of movement, sensation, cognitive functions, or the ability to communicate. Catastrophic injuries are often severe enough to prevent someone from performing gainful work in the long-term.

Examples: Examples of catastrophic injuries include brain injury or other serious head trauma, spinal cord injury, loss of a limb, eye injury, foot injury, multiple bone fractures, and severe burns. If the catastrophic injury causes a disruption of the central nervous system, other bodily systems may become severely damaged as well, such as the respiratory system (which is used for breathing), the circulatory system (which pumps and channels blood), and the urinary system (which includes the kidneys and is used for balancing fluids).

Causes: Catastrophic injuries can occur as a result of many different events or causes: car accidents, the use of defective products, negligence, assaults or batteries, environmental or natural disasters, civil rights violations, wrongful death, medical malpractice, or workplace injuries.

Treatment: Because of the nature of catastrophic injuries, treatment is often expensive, complex, and long-term. The victim of a catastrophic injury may face hospitalization, immediate medical attention, surgeries, physical therapy, rehabilitation, and counseling. Often, unforeseen consequences of the catastrophic injury happen much later after the occurrence of the injury.
