Examples of catastrophic injuries can include:

- Traumatic brain injuries that lead to permanent brain damage
- The traumatic loss of a limb or appendage, such as an arm, leg, hand, or foot
- Second and third-degree burns over large portions of the body
- Harm to major organs like the heart, lungs, liver, or kidneys
- Extensive fractures in arms, legs, hips, skull, vertebrae, or ribs
- Total or near total loss of sight or hearing that is irreversible
- Scarring, loss of facial features, deformities, or other extreme physical changes to appearance
The common thread is catastrophic injuries have permanent, life-altering impacts on the victim and involve long-term rehabilitation and disability. They typically have much higher financial costs as well. You can discuss your specific injuries with a catastrophic injury lawyer.
