When catastrophic injuries occur, a victim’s life can be unexpectedly changed forever, affecting not only them but their family as well.

Catastrophic injuries produce long-term repercussions and are often permanently disabling physically or psychologically.
Some of the most common categories of catastrophic injuries include:
TBIs can vary in severity. Effects may include severe headaches, issues with memory, cognitive deficits, abnormal speech and language, personality changes, emotional problems, and other lifelong difficulties.
Can include partial or complete paralysis, which has a devastating impact on the life of the injured person. The ability to physically function, work and enjoy life and relationships will all be affected.
These types of injuries often happen in motor vehicle and workplace accidents.
Thermal, electrical, and chemical burns can all lead to infections, limb loss, and other permanent scarring and disfigurement.
Exposure to toxic substances can cause hypoxia (lack of oxygen to the brain) or permanent organ damage.
There are a variety of accidents that can lead to the loss of a limb or a required amputation. In addition to physical limitations, the loss of a limb can lead to emotional and psychological challenges for amputees, as well as the people in their lives.
Injuries such as burns or deep lacerations can produce visible and permanent scarring, which can negatively impact an injured person psychologically in addition to physically.
