What is Considered a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury refers to a severe injury to the spinal cord, brain, or other parts of the body, resulting in long-term or permanent disabilities and significant impairment of a person's physical or cognitive functions. These injuries typically have life-altering consequences for the individuals affected, often requiring extensive medical treatment, long-term care, and rehabilitation. They can occur suddenly and have a profound impact on the individual's quality of life and their ability to work and engage in daily activities.

There are several types of injuries that are considered catastrophic, including:

  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI): This occurs when a sudden trauma causes damage to the brain. TBIs can result from a variety of incidents, including falls, car accidents, sports injuries, or violence. Symptoms can range from mild concussions to severe cognitive impairment and may include memory loss, impaired motor function, and changes in personality or behavior.
  • Spinal Cord Injury (SCI): An injury to the spinal cord can cause partial or complete paralysis below the site of the injury. SCI can result from traumatic events such as car accidents, falls, sports injuries, or acts of violence. Depending on the severity and location of the injury, individuals may experience loss of sensation, muscle weakness, or complete loss of movement and function.
  • Amputation: Losing a limb due to injury or surgical removal is a catastrophic event that can have profound physical and psychological effects on an individual. Amputations can occur as a result of accidents, medical conditions such as diabetes or vascular disease, or as a necessary surgical intervention following severe trauma.
  • Severe Burns: Burns that cover a large area of the body or penetrate deep layers of tissue can cause significant damage and complications. Severe burns may result from fires, explosions, chemical exposure, or electrical accidents. In addition to pain and disfigurement, individuals with severe burns may experience impaired mobility, loss of sensation, and increased risk of infection.
  • Severe Orthopedic Injuries: Fractures, dislocations, and other orthopedic injuries that involve multiple bones or joints can be considered catastrophic, particularly if they result in long-term impairment or disability. These injuries often require extensive surgical intervention, rehabilitation, and may lead to chronic pain and reduced mobility.
  • Organ Damage: Traumatic injuries to vital organs such as the heart, lungs, liver, or kidneys can have serious, life-threatening consequences. Damage to these organs can occur as a result of blunt force trauma, penetrating injuries, or medical complications following accidents or surgeries.
  • Vision or Hearing Loss: Catastrophic injuries affecting vision or hearing can significantly impact an individual's independence, communication, and overall quality of life. These injuries may result from traumatic events, exposure to loud noise, or medical conditions such as stroke or brain injury.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
