About Catastrophic Injury
When you are involved in a serious accident, the toll on your body can be traumatic and severe. While some will be able to recover from their injuries, other accident victims will be dealing with physical and emotional impairments for the rest of their lives.
A catastrophic injury is an injury that causes significant and life-changing harm to a person, and also affects their quality of life. This can be temporary or permanent. Often, the victims of catastrophic injuries need help with day-to-day activities, such as eating or bathing, and are unable to travel, or work certain jobs.
