Types of Catastrophic Injuries
What exactly is a catastrophic injury? The term is used to describe injuries which leave the victim permanently disabled. It affects their quality of living and means that their life will never be the same. In many cases, the victim is left requiring long-term care and medical attention. Others are not able to return to their previous form of employment or cannot have a job at all. Some of the most common types of catastrophic injuries are burn injuries, spinal injuries, and brain injuries.
- Burn injuries are painful and serious because they can result in further complications. The severity of the case will differ depending on the extent of the body the burn covers as well as which degree of burn it is. Third degree burns are the most serious and can result in permanent scarring.
- Spinal cord injuries are often caused by auto accidents, medical malpractice, and workplace accidents. The spine is made up of nerves which carry messages from the brain to the rest of the body. This being said, when there is any damage done to the spinal cord, it can result in serious side effects. Speech, muscle coordination, breathing, and more could all be affected by a seemingly small injury to the spinal cord.
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can affect a myriad of bodily functions. From personality to behavior to muscle movement to organs, brain damage can cause a victim's life to permanently be changed. Not only that, but brain damage can be permanent as it causes cells in the brain to die.
