What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
Catastrophic injuries entail devastating physical, emotional, and financial consequences for victims and their families. While catastrophic injuries can involve any bodily organ or part, such injuries typically involve life-altering damage to the spine, brain, or other vital organs.
Although catastrophic injuries can seem like a never-ending list, common catastrophic injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Permanent disability
- Burn injuries
- Blunt force trauma
- Spinal cord injuries
- Hearing and/or vision loss
- Severe broken or fractured bones
- Severe disfigurement or scarring
While the vast majority of people assume catastrophic events will never happen to them, the unfortunate reality is that catastrophic injuries are more common than we think. Every year, Georgia residents are injured as a result of car crashes, acts of medical malpractice,
Sadly, catastrophic injury cases aren’t as uncommon as one may think. Every year, thousands of catastrophic injuries occur in Georgia as a result of motor vehicle crashes, medical malpractice, and other accidents. As you can imagine, this can make it overwhelming for injured parties to consider their future, as such tragedies can instantly rob a person of their agency, mobility, bodily autonomy, and dignity.

In catastrophic injury cases, victims have the right to recover damages to help cover various damages, including (but not limited to):
- Loss of wages
- Medical expenses
- Emotional distress
- Permanent impairment
- Loss of companionship
- Future economic losses
As you can likely predict, medical bills can be astronomical for catastrophic injuries, especially those that require extensive inpatient/outpatient care and lasting or lifelong treatment.
Lost wages due to missed work may also be recovered if the catastrophic injury prevents someone from working. In addition, victims may be eligible to receive compensation for any long-term economic losses they face as a direct result of their catastrophic injury. For example, if someone was permanently disabled due to a catastrophic car accident, they may be able to recover damages for loss of earning capacity and vocational rehabilitation services.
