What is a Catastrophic Injury?
A catastrophic injury can be defined as any serious injury that results in a permanent disability, long-term medical problems or reduced life-expectancy. Catastrophic injuries can cause extreme pain and suffering and can have devastating consequences for you and your family. They may occur from a broad range of normal and medical accidents.
