What is considered a catastrophic injury?Common catastrophic Injury Infographic

According to 42 USCS § 3796b, an injury is catastrophic when it is a “direct and proximate consequence of which permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work”. This means that if an injury is so traumatizing that it leaves an individual with permanent damage, it can be considered catastrophic.

Most catastrophic injuries are the result of brain and spinal cord damage, and permanent injuries resulting from serious burns.

Some examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Loss of limbs
  • Serious burns
  • Blindness
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Fatal injuries
  • Bone fractures

We realize that filing a claim cannot change what has occurred, but it is important that we hold reckless individuals responsible for their actions. Not only can this give you a sense of closure and justice, but it can also protect others from becoming unnecessarily injured.
