What Constitutes A Catastrophic Injury?
Not all injuries are classified as catastrophic; they must be so severe that they lead to a diminished quality of life or permanent disability. Traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury and paralysis are some examples. Individuals with such injuries can incur costs involving medical bills, loss of wages, pain and suffering, long-term recovery and rehabilitation.
