- Spinal or neck injuries that lead to partial or complete paralysis.
- Injuries leading to amputations.
- Burns causing disfigurement.
- Other injuries causing severe or permanent functional disability.
- Injuries causing fatality.
Victims of catastrophic injuries almost always require emergency trauma care, extended hospital stays, surgeries and other treatments, extensive rehabilitative therapy, and more. Furthermore, if victims suffer permanent disabilities, they will likely require long-lasting assistance at home and with everyday activities, as well as costly medical equipment for the home.
As you can imagine, the cost of treating a catastrophic injury can be impressive and regularly surpasses medical insurance policy limits. In addition, victims of catastrophic injuries often can never work again, which means they may lose significant income and benefits for the rest of their lives. Finally, catastrophic injuries regularly cause physical pain and suffering, as well as emotional trauma and an overall diminished enjoyment of life.
