What is a Catastrophic Injury?
Defining Catastrophic Injury
When a person suffers a personal injury in an accident, there are different levels of severity involved. Minor accidents result in injuries that are not so severe, such as cuts, lacerations and bruises. Other accidents cause more serious harm, such as minor concussions, fractures, and burns. Catastrophic injuries are those that are considered the most severe or that cause lasting or permanent physical damage. Examples of such injury include the following:
Types of Accidents that Cause Permanent Damage

truck, bus and 18-wheeler accidents. Perhaps you have been injured in by a
drunk driver or a
texting driver. Vehicle crashes involve high speeds and harsh collisions that can result in most of the injuries listed above. Other vehicle accidents include
bicycle accidents and

A person could slip and fall, or a
