Common types of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis

How Catastrophic Injuries Happen

A catastrophic injury is defined as a permanent injury or illness that a victim must live with for the rest of his/her life. While personal injuries can be serious in nature, they are often temporary.

The following are the most common causes of catastrophic injuries:

  • Car and motorcycle accidents – Since motorcyclists are only protected by a helmet and padded clothing, a collision with a passenger vehicle can result in riders suffering catastrophic injuries.
  • Car and truck accidents – Due to the massive size and weight of commercial semi-trucks, big rigs, and tractor-trailers in comparison with a passenger vehicle, occupants in a car can suffer catastrophic injuries when a truck crashes into them.
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents – Pedestrians and cyclists don’t have adequate protection when they are struck by a vehicle.
  • Dangerous products – From inherently dangerous toys to faulty tools, these products can cause catastrophic injuries.
  • Dangerous property conditions – Whether it’s a tripping hazard to falling objects, dangerous conditions on public or private premises can also lead to catastrophic injuries.
