What is a Catastrophic Injury?
If you have been injured by the negligence of another then you may be able to obtain money damages. If your injuries are extremely severe then you may be suffering from extreme financial hardship due to the medical bills you have incurred. In addition, you may be unable to work due to the severity of your injury; this can result in even more severe financial hardship. There are many families every year whose lives are utterly ruined by the negligence of others.
Some examples of catastrophic injuries may include the following among others:
- Brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries

When a serious accident occurs, the results can be mild personal injury, catastrophic injury, and even wrongful death in some cases.
Traumatic Brain Injury & Spinal Cord Injury
A traumatic brain injury results from rapid acceleration/deceleration. This can occur when you are traveling at a high speed and come to a sudden stop, as in the case hitting another object. This would result in rapid acceleration/deceleration where your brain ricochets inside of your skull. Car accidents are a common cause for this kind of injury. A spinal cord injury is extremely severe as it is part of your central nervous system. This kind of injury can result in paralysis, paraplegia and other loss of function. It can result from various accidents such as falls and car accidents.
