How do catastrophic injuries occur?

Catastrophic injury defines serious personal injuries sustained on the spinal cord or brain that may result in a shortened life expectancy, long-lasting medical problems, and physical and emotional changes.

Catastrophic injuries can occur in many different ways:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Defective products
  • Worksite accidents (falls, construction site hazards)
  • Acts of violence, for example, assaults, attacks, fighting
  • Trucking accidents
