What is a Catastrophic Injury?

When an injury causes life-changing circumstances or is life-threatening, it is considered catastrophic in many medical and legal contexts. Not all catastrophic injuries are viewed as such immediately, either. Instead, it can be a while until enough medical evidence is gathered to understand that an injury has forever changed the victim’s life.

Examples of catastrophic injuries often seen in injury cases are:

  • Brain injuries: A “mild” brain injury can be life-changing, depending on what part of the brain is injured. As such, all brain injuries are considered catastrophic.
  • Spinal cord injuries: Damage to the spinal cord can cause immediate and permanent paralysis that affects multiple body parts or bodily regions.
  • Amputations: Losing a limb in an accident is tragic. Modern medical technologies can replace the limb with a prosthetic, which can be costly. Suing the liable party is all but necessary.
  • Permanent scars: A permanent and visible scar can be considered a catastrophic injury, even if it only causes lasting emotional harm, not physical pain.

Why does it matter if your injury is catastrophic or not? In New York, personal injury protection (PIP) insurance sold under various circumstances, including motor vehicle accidents, requires the injured claimant to seek compensation and coverage from their insurer, not the party that hurt them. Only if the claimant has been catastrophically injured can they file a claim against the other party’s insurance policy.

Maximum Compensation for Severe Injuries

You should be fully compensated after being in an accident that someone else caused yet left you with catastrophic, life-changing injuries. The cost of medical care to best treat your injuries could be enormous. The amount of money you lose due to missing work or ending your career could be staggering.
