Catastrophic Injuries Have Long-Term Implications
Catastrophic injuries have severe repercussions and often result in permanent damage. Such an injury affects the entire family. Catastrophic injuries can last weeks, months, or years and may require the constant personal attention and assistance of another person or several people.
Common injuries include the following:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) - Falls and motor vehicle accidents may cause a traumatic injury to the brain, which could lead to death, permanent disability and loss of memory and body functions.
- Spinal cord injuries and paralysis - Affecting the central nervous system, injury to the spinal cord and nerve roots can be devastating. A form of paralysis may result, either paraplegia, in which a person loses function of the lower extremities, or quadriplegia, loss of function in all four limbs. Long-term care would most likely be required.
- Severe burns - Many types of accidents, including construction accidents, motor vehicle accidents and product-related accidents, can result in severe burns that could lead to disability and disfigurement.
- Loss of limbs - A construction, motor vehicle or product-related accident could cause a limb to separate from the body. Or a limb may require surgical removal after the accident. Amputation is physically and emotionally traumatic, and the victim may require long-term care.
- Internal organ damage - Body crushing caused by a truck accident or construction accident can cause severe damage to internal organs, including the lungs, kidney and heart.
- Broken bones - Not all bone fractures heal appropriately. They may result in permanent loss of mobility.
- Loss of hearing or vision - Loss of hearing or vision can lead to job loss, lost ability to earn a living and trauma.
- Permanent nerve damage - Permanent nerve damage may limit a person's physical ability to perform everyday activities and cause certain sensitivities.
