The Voss Law Firm can help!
What Constitutes a Catastrophic Injury?
Depending on your tolerance for pain, any injury may strike you as “catastrophic”—but this phrase usually applies to:
- Broken, crushed, or amputated arms or legs (or feet or hands)
- A serious head injury, such as a skull fracture
- Paraplegia (permanent paralysis from the waist down), or quadriplegia (permanent paralysis from the neck down)
- Serious internal bleeding, which may result in the actual loss of an organ (spleen, kidney, lung, etc.)
- Multiple broken or fractured bones, which may entail an extended recovery in a full-body cast
- A partial or permanent loss of sight or hearing in the wake of an accident
- Pretty much any injury that does not kill you, but necessitates weeks, months, or even years of medical treatment
