A catastrophic injury is one that is so severe that it drastically affects your ability to function in life and can even lead to death. Catastrophic injuries occur in almost any type of situation, whether an auto accident, workplace accident or even a medical malpractice case. Catastrophic injuries result in injuries that are often life-threatening or disabling. Suffering such an injury results in devastating consequences for both you and your family. Some of the types of injuries that can lead to disabling injuries which are considered catastrophic include traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, burn injuries, birth injuries, fractures and internal organ injuries.
