What Constitutes a Catastrophic Injury?
It is important to note that there is no legal definition of a “catastrophic injury;” instead, it is typically up to your attorney to prove that your injury is catastrophic. Any disabling and long-lasting condition that causes severe pain or affects your ability normally to live your life may be considered a catastrophic injury. This includes injuries that affect your ability to work, care for yourself, care for your children or other loved ones, drive a car, or carry out any other tasks you were previously able to do.
Some examples of common catastrophic injuries include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Head injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Serious burn injuries
- Loss of hearing
- Loss of vision
- Organ damage
Please note that this list is not exhaustive; there are many other injuries that may be considered catastrophic. Our trusted North Carolina catastrophic injury lawyers are equipped to handle all types of cases, from the simplest claims of negligence to the most complex situations involving multiple parties and victims. We never back down from a challenge and are prepared to fight for you and your recovery every step of the way.
Causes of Catastrophic Injuries
Many people fail to realize that a simple careless mistake can cause devastating bodily injury or the death of another person. For example, a property owner who fails to remedy a slick surface may wind up causing a visitor to suffer brain and head injuries, spinal cord damage, or another type of catastrophic injury.
Some examples of accidents that can lead to serious injuries include:
- Car accidents
- Drunk driving accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Slip and falls
- Unsafe premises
- Defective products
- Dog bites
- Medical malpractice
- Elder abuse
- Truck accidents
- Work-related accidents
- Construction site accidents
- Railroad accidents
Suffering a catastrophic injury can cause unbearable pain and suffering, not only for victims but for their loved ones as well. Often, these injuries require extensive medical treatment. Sometimes, this treatment may even be lifelong. This can place an immense financial burden on families who are already struggling with the other consequences of the accident.

Our attorneys understand the unique challenges these types of personal injury cases present, and we know how to help you navigate the legal process in pursuit of the full, fair compensation you are owed.
