Catastrophic injuries are defined as severe, life-changing injuries that usually occur suddenly and without warning. The victims of this serious type of personal injury are left to suffer the long-term implications of a catastrophic injury. Many times, these means permanent disabilities or disfigurement.
Minor injuries, such as scrapes or bruises, are a part of everyday life as a human being. We feel pain for a period of time, but our bodies heal and we are able to carry on as normal. This is not the case when a catastrophic injury occurs.
