How to Classify a Catastrophic Injury

Most injuries can leave physical damage. However, some repercussions are more serious than others. An injury can be deemed ‘catastrophic’ if it prevents you from being able to work or provide for yourself or your family. 

Common Types

Catastrophic injuries can affect various parts of the body and take many different forms, such as:

  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Back injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Neck injuries
  • Hearing or vision loss
  • Multiple broken bones
  • Amputations/limb loss
  • Severe burns
  • Nerve damage
  • Organ damage
  • Paralysis
  • Wrongful death

If you’ve recently suffered any of the above injuries in the Coeur d’Alene area, reach out to me. I’ll be here to listen to your story and explain your options going forward.

Common Causes

Catastrophic injuries can take place anywhere, but they tend to happen in situations involving:

  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Construction site accidents
  • Defective products
  • Fires or explosions
  • Sports

The legal processes surrounding personal injuries can be extremely overwhelming, but they are necessary to receive fair compensation. Allow an experienced attorney to help you navigate the road to recovery.

How Do I Know If My Injury is Catastrophic?

One would think a catastrophic injury would be obvious, and it typically is. However, after you’ve been in an accident, your body’s adrenaline can prevent you from feeling the full severity of pain for days or even weeks. It is imperative that you see a doctor immediately following an accident, especially if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Partial or complete paralysis
  • Neck or back pain
  • Numbness
  • Loss of movement or weakness in a limb
  • Loss of bladder control
  • Reflexive muscle spasms
  • Difficulty balancing or walking normally
  • Difficulty breathing
  • The inability to feel sensations such as heat, cold, or touch

A medical exam will likely identify any injuries, and it can also contribute to your insurance claim. If you fail to have your injury documented by a medical professional after an accident, a gap will appear in your medical file. Your insurance provider will therefore have no reason to attribute your injury to the accident, and you may not receive proper compensation.
