Catastrophic Injuries

While many kinds of injuries in the world can be seen as catastrophic, there are several that are more closely associated with the category of catastrophic than any else. These injuries are:

  • Spinal cord injuries – Spinal cord injuries are considered as such when there is any injury to any part of the spinal cord. When serious, these injuries can often lead to permanent paralysis that is either partial or complete below the site of the injury.
  • Traumatic brain injuries – Traumatic brain injuries are bad as they are extremely unpredictable injuries that can not only cause awful mental and emotional disturbances, but also seriously impair the brain. Some victims describe it as losing themselves completely.
  • Serious burns
  • Organ damage
  • Broken bones
  • Fractured bones
  • Exposure to dangerous chemicals
  • Exposure to dangerous toxins
  • Amputations
