A catastrophic injury is one that is so severe that it has long-standing, crippling or permanent effects on the person who suffers the injury. People tend to think of such conditions as severe brain damage or quadriplegics when they first think of a catastrophic injury. However, there are many other types of injuries that fall under this umbrella: Organ damage, severe burns and traumatic neck or back injuries are just a few examples of various catastrophic injuries.
Perhaps you were involved in an injury at work, or injured by machinery, or involved in a major car crash. Were you were the victim of a violent crime? If so, the criminal justice system may be punishing the offender, while you continue to suffer mentally, emotionally and physically from his or her act. Catastrophic injuries come in many different types, but all are terribly traumatic to the victim and his or her family.
By definition, catastrophic injury is sudden and long-term. It is most often devastating to the victim and the victim’s family. The unexpectedness of the injury, by its very nature, can often leave a family in a state of mental anguish and emotional pain long after the incident or accident has occurred. Because the victims and their families are often financially devastated as well, the ramifications of such injury can seem never-ending.
