What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
“Catastrophic injury” is an umbrella term for any injury that caused significant, life-changing harm to a person and their quality of life. After the injury, the victim often becomes dependent on others for activities they were previously able to do on their own, such as bathing, walking, traveling to and from work, working certain jobs and more. This can either be for a short period of time or for the rest of the victim’s life.
Catastrophic injury comprises any extremely harmful injury, including but not limited to:
- Brain injuries
- Blunt force trauma
- Hearing loss
- Injuries to the spinal cord
- Neck and back injuries
- Burn injuries
- Vision loss
Often, these injuries are broken up into three subcategories: physical, spinal cord, and cognitive. A physical catastrophic injury would be the amputation of a limb; a spinal cord injury would be any harm done to the spinal cord that resulted in mobility issues; and cognitive injuries are those that resulted in significant damage to the brain.

What Compensation Is Available to Victims?
The compensation for catastrophic injuries aims to reflect the harm done to the injured individual and their family. Victims are likely to have large medical bills and emotional damage from undergoing trauma. Additionally, their families are likely to dedicate their time to taking care of the injured, often resigning from their jobs or delaying their own life plans in the process. Thus, the worse the injury and its effects, the higher the settlement or verdict tends to be.
A victim may be eligible for compensation for:
- Emotional distress
- Loss of income
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Permanent disability
