A catastrophic injury is one that leaves the victim suffering painful, permanent damage.
This can refer to third-degree burns, injuries affecting the head, neck or spine, and amputations. A catastrophic injury is termed so because it has a devastating impact on every aspect of the victim’s life, and can have an impact on the lives of their loved ones as well. All too often, those that suffer catastrophic injuries do so in serious workplace accidents.
