What does it mean to have a catastrophic injury?

When you think of personal injuries, you probably think of something that a person will recover from. However, a catastrophic injury is different. The injuries we want to talk about today are those that are life-altering for victims and their families.

  • Long-term care if necessary
  • Any necessary medical devices
  • Home or vehicle accommodations for mobility
  • Emotional and psychological care
  • Lost wages and benefits if a person can no longer work

  • There are over 2 million new traumatic brain injury cases each year in this country.
