A catastrophic injury is one that causes lasting emotional and physical harm. If an injury negatively impacts your life, such as paralysis or amputation, this is considered catastrophic. Other injuries that can be classified as catastrophic can include brain injury, spinal cord injury, or any injury that requires multiple surgeries or a lengthy stay in the hospital. If your injury impacts your ability to work, this can also be considered catastrophic.
