What is a Catastrophic Injury?

In personal injury, a catastrophic injury is different from a regular severe injury; a catastrophic injury results in permanent or long-term disability. This can greatly reduce a person’s ability to earn an income or provide for their family or take care of their basic needs. A person with a catastrophic injury may also need long-term⁠—or permanent⁠—extensive medical care. In short, a catastrophic injury typically results in disabilities that require expensive medical care and, in some cases, personal assistance.

Personal Injury Results Utah Residents Will Appreciate

Because catastrophic injuries are defined by the long term result of the injury, as opposed to the injury itself, this means that any injury can be a catastrophic injury. Some people involved in a rear-end collision will suffer severe pain from whiplash. With the more fortunate people, that pain will go away eventually. However, others in a rear-end collision will experience such severe whiplash, that they have complications resulting from the accident. If these complications are severe and long-lasting, or permanent, they may be considered a catastrophic injury. But automobile accidents are not the only sources of catastrophic injuries: people may also become catastrophically injured from sports accidents, defective products, or work premises liability.

The expenses following a catastrophic injury can be outrageous. Aside from long-term medical care, you may also have to pay for several other expenses. Aids such as wheelchairs or walkers may need to be paid for. You may also need to pay for short term treatments, prosthetics, therapy bills, or lost wages. There are also emotional damages that come with catastrophic injuries. Tragically, many people are divorced as a result of their catastrophic injury. This is called loss of consortium. You may also sue for emotional distress and pain and suffering.

If you became the victim of a catastrophic injury, will you know where to seek relief? Catastrophic injuries almost always involve massive changes to the victim’s lifestyle and many people and their loved ones struggle with adapting to a new normal. Since catastrophic injuries are almost always unanticipated, most people don’t have a plan in place to cope with the challenges the injuries bring.
