WHAT IS A CATASTROPHIC INJURY?
When it comes to law, a catastrophic injury means an extreme or serious injury such that it has a considerable impact on the victim of the injury.
When this happens, there necessitates a considerable amount of medical treatment to assist the patient in recovery and healing if possible.
In law, when a person sustains a permanent and serious injury in an accident caused by the negligent actions of another,
the injured person may have a claim in law against the party who caused the injury due to their wrongdoing.
A few examples of catastrophic injuries are:
- Broken bones/fractures.
- Traumatic Brain injuries.
- Internal organ damage.
- Spinal cord injuries.
