Catastrophic Injuries Can Change Life in an Instant

By Freedman & Freedman  Nov. 18, 2010 3:30p

A catastrophic injury can be defined as an injury which results in a permanent disability that could shorten one's life span and/or requires long term medical treatment. A few examples of catastrophic injuries would be:

  • Paralysis
  • Loss of hearing
  • Loss of eyesight
  • Severe burn injury
  • Loss of a limb
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Brain injury
  • Severe internal injuries

Injuries to Children

When a child has a catastrophic injury, it not only affects him or her, but the entire family as well. Severe injuries can change a child's personality and abilities temporarily or for a lifetime and this can have a significant effect on the family as well. As the child is still growing, the full effect of the injury may not be apparent for years causing continued disruption and negative consequences.


Having an amputation can be extremely traumatic as a result of a motorcycle or auto accident or a work related accident. This often triggers serious emotional reactions afterwards which may last a lifetime.
