Castrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries usually occur suddenly and without warning and are considered any injury that causes immense emotional and/or mental anguish and physical pain. Injured victims may also suffer from permanent disabilities.

Catastrophic Injury is defined as “a severe injury to the spine, spinal cord, or brain”, but may also include:

  • Severe Burns
  • Organ damage
  • Loss of limb or accidental amputation
  • Neurological disorders

Immediately following an accident, it is imperative that you seek medical attention right away. Many symptoms following a catastrophic injury do not become apparent for several weeks or months. As an example, the symptoms of traumatic brain injuries can be headaches, changes in personality or mood, and memory loss or trouble concentrating.
