Understanding Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries are those injuries that cause significant physical damage to the person and have potential permanent consequences. Examples include serious brain damage, coma, spinal cord injury, paralysis, serious burns, and dismemberment. They may lead to shortened life expectancy, loss of a bodily function or system, organ failure, quadriplegia, paraplegia, partial or full disability, or medical care and treatment that must last for the duration of the person’s life.
Multiple surgeries or extended hospitalization may also be required. These types of injuries are included in the leading causes of wrongful death for Americans of all ages, and the ways in which they can be sustained vary. Common accidents that lead to catastrophic injury include:
- Car accidents
- Construction accidents
- Slip and falls
- Aviation accidents
- Elevator and escalator accidents
- Gas explosions
- Machinery accidents
- Medical malpractice
- Work accidents
An accident like this comes about due to negligence on the part of another, and in such cases that negligent party may be financially responsible for the victim or victim’s injuries.
