What is a 'catastrophic' injury?

Injuries are often called "catastrophic" when the physical injuries to a person are especially severe, and require extensive medical treatment. Often, the injuries may cause damage to a person's central nervous system, which may affect other bodily systems or functions. Examples of catastrophic injuries include:


  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Brain injuries
  • Amputations
  • Burns over a large portion of the body
  • Loss of an eye
  • Injuries to the nerves in the chest, shoulder, and arm (brachial plexus)
  • Multiple fractures

In addition, many people who suffer catastrophic injuries also suffer depression or other emotional problems because of the limitations put on them by their injuries.
