What is a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury is an injury that has a serious and long-lasting impact on a person’s life. It can be physical, resulting in severe injuries such as loss of mobility or sensory function, or cognitive, causing severe mental health problems. Catastrophic injuries can occur as a result of car accidents, medical malpractice, slips and falls, industrial accidents, or incidents involving dangerous products.

Catastrophic injuries often require long-term medical care costs which can lead to significant financial hardships for those affected. As such, most states, including New South Wales, have laws in place allowing people who have sustained such an injury due to another’s negligence to seek financial compensation through a personal injury compensation claim.

Not only does a catastrophic injury affect the primary victim, but it can also have a profound impact on their loved ones, which may be required to provide financial, physical and emotional support. Catastrophic injuries involve substantial medical treatment; therefore, it is important that victims are offered the best opportunity to seek compensation.

Examples of Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries include, but are not limited to:

  1. Spinal cord injury and neurological disorders that result in paralysis, quadriplegia, paraplegia and tetraplegia
  2. Serious head trauma
  3. Traumatic brain injury
  4. Loss of limbs
  5. Severe burns
  6. Multiple bone fractures
  7. Loss of sight or hearing
