#1: Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

Traumatic brain injuries are catastrophic because it can permanently change a person’s life. In many cases, those with TBI often suffer from severe depression and need medical care around the clock.

#2: Burn Injuries

While first degree burns can be relatively minor (ex: sunburns), second- and third-degree burns can be excruciating. These types of injuries can result in life-long scarring and disfigurement.

#3: Loss of Vision

Loss of vision is another common type of catastrophic injury. Vision can be lost when a person is hit by a flying object (blunt force trauma), or if exposed to chemicals or lasers.

#4: Spinal Cord Injuries

When the spinal cord suffers severe damage, it can lead to catastrophic results. Depending on where the injury was sustained, a spinal cord injury can result in paralysis.

#5: Amputations

The loss of a limb is another common type of catastrophic injury. A loss limb can leave a victim unable to continue their line of work, or it can require extensive rehabilitation and treatment.
