What is a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury is defined as an injury that results in severe and permanent disability or disfigurement. These injuries can be caused by car accidents, motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, slip and fall accidents, construction accidents, medical malpractice, and more.
Some of the most common types of catastrophic injuries include:

Spinal cord injuries

Spinal cord injuries are among the most serious types of injuries that can occur in an accident. This type of injury occurs when there is damage to the spinal cord itself or to the nerves located around it. This can result in paralysis, and other lifelong injuries.

Brain injuries

Brain injuries are also very serious and can result in permanent disabilities or death if not treated immediately after the accident occurs. Therefore, it is always in the victim’s best interest to seek medical treatment immediately after an accident--even if they believe they are fine in that moment. Many times, the effects of brain injuries, or any injury for that matter, may not arise immediately, which is why it is best to consult with a medical professional for an exam.


Amputations are also considered catastrophic because they require extensive medical treatment and physical therapy to recover from them.

Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

There are many potential causes of a catastrophic injury, including:

Car Accidents

Car accidents are one of the most common causes of catastrophic injuries because they often involve high speeds and heavy impact forces that can cause serious damage to the body’s internal organs and bones.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice can occur if medical professionals fail to properly diagnose and treat an illness or condition, resulting in further complications that lead to death or disability.

Slip and Fall Accidents

When a property is unsafe, this can easily result in a slip and fall accident, resulting in serious injuries, such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury, broken bones, and more.

How Much is My Case Worth?

The value of a catastrophic injury case varies from case to case. Every case is extremely unique, therefore, it’s difficult to give an estimate without assessing the circumstances of the accident, as well as the damages. However, the following factors can better help determine the value of a case:

1. The nature and severity of your injuries

2. The cost of medical treatment needed for your injuries

3. Whether your injuries caused you to miss work or lose income

4. Insurance policy limits

To get a better idea of how much your case may be worth, it is always best to consult with a trusted catastrophic injury lawyer. Our team will be able to better decipher the circumstances of your case and hopefully provide you with a better idea of your case’s worth.
