What is a “Catastrophic” Injury
A catastrophic injury is an injury that fundamentally alters a person’s life. The way the person’s life is altered is usually permanent. In many cases, catastrophic injuries lead to weeks in the hospital followed by extensive physical therapy, and often home renovations in order to accommodate a new disability. This type of injury generates long-term medical costs most families are not prepared for.
Common Catastrophic Injuries:
- Brain Injuries – Loss of speech, memory, or cognitive ability are common symptoms of brain damage. Paralysis of some or all of the body is also common. The time it takes to treat a brain injury is extremely difficult to determine, making a prognosis for recovery equally difficult.
- Spinal Cord Injuries How a patient will react to a spinal cord injury is difficult to predict. Some patients have recovered quickly, while others remain paralyzed for life because of the damage to their spinal cords. Auto accidents commonly cause spinal cord injuries.
- Paralysis – There are two types of paralysis, and either can be considered full or partial paralysis. Paralysis in the lower extremities solely is called paraplegia, while paralysis from the neck down is known as quadriplegia. Brain and spinal cord injuries can result in paralysis, and if either is damaged severely recovery may be impossible.
- Fractures and Broken Bones – A badly broken bone could result in months of healing and therapy to recover use of the limb or body part. An injury to the neck or back could require the use of a wheelchair, walking frame, or crutches for a time and require months in the hospital.
- Soft Tissue Damage – Soft tissue damage may seem less severe than brain, spinal cord, or bone injuries, but soft tissue damage that does not heal properly can result in a permanent issue such as a limp or inability to use an extremity.
