What Classifies as a Catastrophic Injury?
Any injury is bound to have repercussions. However, some are more serious than others. An injury can be categorized as ‘catastrophic’ when it prevents you from being able to work or provide for your family’s needs.
Catastrophic injuries can take a variety of different forms, such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Neck injuries
- Hearing or vision loss
- Multiple broken bones
- Amputations/limb loss
- Severe burns
- Nerve damage
- Organ damage
- Wrongful death

- Fires or explosions
- Medical malpractice

How to Identify a Catastrophic Injury
One would think serious injuries would be immediately obvious, and in most cases, they are. However, after you’ve been in an accident, adrenaline can prevent your body from feeling the full severity of pain for days or even weeks. That is why it is important to see a doctor as soon as possible, especially if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Partial or complete paralysis
- Neck or back pain
- Loss of movement or weakness in a limb
- Loss of bladder control
- Reflexive muscle spasms
- Difficulty breathing or walking normally
- Difficulty balancing
- The inability to feel sensations such as heat, cold, or touch
Not only will a medical exam be able to identify any injuries, but it can also contribute to your insurance claim. If your injury is not documented by a medical professional immediately following the accident, a gap will appear in your medical file. Your insurance provider will therefore have no reason to connect your injury with the accident, and you may not receive compensation.
