A catastrophic injury is typically an injury that severely injures a person and leads to long-term, if not permanent, disability, and in some cases, disfigurement. The description of a catastrophic injury will not be found in a legal dictionary. The majority of catastrophic injury cases that our experienced law firm pursues involve injuries with a lengthy and difficult recovery process, if there is one at all. Some types of catastrophic injuries are:
- injuries to a victim's spinal cord;
- traumatic brain injuries;
- injuries that render a victim partially or total paralyzed;
- injuries that result in the loss of a limb; and
- severe burn injuries.
