What is Considered a Catastrophic Injury?

Comments Off

A catastrophic injury can include injuries that are devastating in scope while being permanent in nature. These types of injuries can occur in a number of ways and take a tremendous toll on the injured person but also on their loved ones.

According to the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research, injuries considered catastrophic are based on three outcomes associated with them: fatality, those causing permanent severe functional disability and those causing severe head or neck trauma with no permanent disability. It can also involve severe burns, paralysis, and loss of sight, speech, hearing and more.
