What is the Definition of “Catastrophic Injury”?
The term “catastrophic injury” includes any condition that permanently alters the life of the victim. “Catastrophic injury” includes injuries that completely disrupt the function of a body part or organ system, or significantly limit the victim’s abilities. A person who sustains a catastrophic injury may require a lifetime of medical care and assistance with daily tasks.
Sometimes, catastrophic injury is defined by the accident’s effect on the victim’s ability to work. If a person’s injury prevents them from being able to engage in any type of employment, that injury would be considered catastrophic.
Examples of Catastrophic Injuries
A catastrophic injury can affect any part of the body, and may result in physical and/or mental disabilities. Defining what is considered as a catastrophic injury depends less on the type of injury, and more on the injury’s impact on the victim’s life.

The victim and their family will also incur intangible emotional costs including but not limited to pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, loss of purpose, fractured relationships, depression, anxiety, and stress.
