What is a Catastrophic Injury?

Generally, a catastrophic injury is major trauma that was inflicted upon a person. Such trauma could be targeted to the head, neck, chest, or limbs, or over multiple areas of the body. They are usually sudden and unexpected, especially in terms of vehicle or workplace accidents. Public transportation can also be a potential cause of a catastrophic injury, such as train or bus accidents. Catastrophic injuries can even have a negative effect on the central nervous system, making someone more susceptible to illnesses like pneumonia, or pulmonary issues, to name a couple.
