What is a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries are defined as severe injuries that usually occur to the brain, head, or spinal cord and require wide-ranging medical attention and long term care. Injuries to these body parts are normally considered catastrophic because these areas of the body are the motor control and cognitive function areas of the body.
When these areas of the body are damaged, an individual may have brain damage affecting his ability to function in society and requiring round the clock care. Or a spinal injury could leave someone a paraplegic or quadriplegic, with the inability to care for themselves without a caregiver.
