  • Spinal cord injuries: Injuries to the spine can lead to paralysis, and can permanently render one incapable of being able to walk, speak, or move even a single muscle.
  • Amputation injuries: Injuries that require the removal of seriously injured limbs will forever change a person's way of life.
  • Burn injuries: Severe burns may require skin grafts and can permanently alter one's appearance.
  • Multiple bone fractures: Injuries consisting of multiple bone breaks / fractures that require an extended period of time to heal, and one may never fully recover, experiencing life-long impediments in regard to even walking comfortably.
  • Vision impairment: Loss of vision requires a dramatic shift in sensory perception, rendering one dependent on all other senses and drastically altering one's lifestyle.

Common causes of catastrophic injuries are traffic collisions, faulty product, dangerous conditions or workplace accidents. Catastrophic accidents are often at least partially the responsibility of one or more parties that have exhibited negligence to some degree.

Costs associated with a catastrophic accident are not only those associated with hospital bills and the like, but also those employment wages that have been and will be lost due to diminished capacity and such long recuperation times.
