A catastrophic injury can have a devastating impact not only on the accident victim, but also on his or her family. The consequences are most severe when the injury victim was the primary income earner in the family, or the primary caregiver for children. A catastrophic injury can also prove burdensome for those who are required to provide extra care to their injured family member.
Generally speaking, catastrophic injuries can include any of the following injury types:
- Brain Injury
- Spinal Cord Injury
- Quadriplegic and Paraplegic Injuries.
- Severe Burns and Scarring
- Amputation and Disfigurement.
- Severe Depression, Severe Anxiety and other Psychological or severe Behavioral Disorders.
- Wrongful Death and Fatal Accidents
