A catastrophic injury is defined as an injury that permanently prevents a person from performing any type of gainful work. A catastrophic illness or injury typically occurs without warning. The victims are often left permanently disabled for the rest of their lives. Any type of injury that has long-term, serious effects on the victim can be classified as a catastrophic injury. Catastrophic injuries not only affect the victim, but they can also affect his or her family members. Victims often require assistance and constant supervision for the rest of their lives. They may also require rehabilitation.
Family members often suffer financially because they have to pay the victim's medical bills. Caring for someone who has suffered a catastrophic injury can be very stressful. There are a number of things that can cause a catastrophic injury. These injuries are often called catastrophic because they can have a major impact on a person's life. In many cases, a catastrophic illness or injury disrupts the central nervous system, such as a severe burn or spinal cord injury. Accidental amputation, organ damage, foot injury, back injury, paralysis, neurological disorders, spinal cord disorders and shoulder injuries are examples of some of the things that can be classified as catastrophic injuries.
People who have been affected by a catastrophic injury typically notice that their life changes for the worse forever. Even though no amount of money can undo the physical and emotional pain that a person who has suffered a catastrophic injury experiences, compensation can help them pay for their medical bills and lost income. That is why victims often hire a personal injury attorney.
