What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
In legal terms, a “catastrophic” injury is one that is so severe, it prevents the victim from returning to his/her normal, pre-accident life. Catastrophically injured victims are often unable to return to work or to obtain any form of gainful employment whatsoever. At Banker Law Group, P.C., our catastrophic injury lawyer understands just how devastating these types of injuries are, both for victims and their loved ones.

Examples of Catastrophic Injuries
While all injuries have the potential to be life-changing, certain injuries are nearly always classified as “catastrophic.”
Some of the most common examples of catastrophic injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Spinal cord injuries
- Paralysis (partial or complete)
- Loss of vision
- Loss of hearing
- Severe burns/disfigurement

Impact of a Catastrophic Injury
When victims suffer any of these or other catastrophic injuries, nearly every aspect of their lives is affected. Victims will typically require extensive, ongoing medical treatment and may even need lifelong care. Because they are often unable to work, they will be unable to earn a living wage to support themselves or their families. And, of course, this is on top of the immense physical pain and emotional distress that accompanies such severe injuries.
Additionally, the family members of catastrophically injured victims will often need to alter their lives in order to care for their loved one. They may need to secure employment or find a second job to make up for the lost income and/or pay for medical bills and ongoing care. In most cases, family members will experience significant emotional trauma in the wake of the accident.
