What is a Catastrophic Injury by Definition?

When you have been seriously injured, it is understandable to think that you have been catastrophically injured. However, injuries are usually only considered “catastrophic” if they meet certain medical and legal definitions of the word.

The two definitions of a catastrophic injury are usually:

  • Medical: In medical contexts, an injury is catastrophic if it will likely cause the victim to suffer a permanent loss of body part or bodily function, or if it is chronic or life-threatening.
  • Legal: In legal contexts, an injury is catastrophic if it will likely cause the victim to struggle to hold gainful employment for the rest of their life.

Defining your injury as catastrophic is important in your injury claim. If your injury cannot meet either definition, then it will become more difficult to justify a higher claim value.

Common Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

Four of the most common types of catastrophic injuries are:

  • Traumatic brain injuries: A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is practically guaranteed to be catastrophic because brain damage is usually impossible to fully heal. Even a small amount of damage to the brain, such as what can be caused by a car accident, can result in life-changing difficulties like memory loss or speech impediments.
  • Spinal cord injuries: As with TBIs, most spinal cord injuries are catastrophic because the spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that is incapable of healing itself. If the spinal cord is severed, even partially, it can cause permanent paralysis in multiple affected body parts.
  • Severely broken bones: Broken bones can be considered catastrophic if the healing process is expected to be complicated and grueling. When a broken bone is set, there is no guarantee that it will heal perfectly, and the victim may live with chronic pain or worsened mobility or dexterity from then on.
  • Third-degree burns: Severe burns can cause significant scarring that never fades. When scarring is located on a highly visible body part like the face, neck, and hands, the injury can be considered catastrophic because it has permanently altered the victim’s appearance.
