Incurring a catastrophic injury (a severe trauma or injury to the body) can be devastating, and oftentimes life threatening or life altering. This kind of major or permanent damage, which can come in various forms, can be difficult to overcome and can happen to anyone, at any time. It can severely impact someone’s ability to see, hear, speak, walk and even think. In addition to physical ailments, an injury can also cause a brain injury, which comes with the burden of expensive medical needs and lost wages, as well as a lifetime of physical, emotional and financial struggles. Years of therapy, medication and ongoing surgeries may be required in order to help the victim fully recover. The result of a catastrophic injury makes it difficult to sustain the quality of life the individual had prior to the accident, and can greatly impact the victim’s family and friends.
Many things can cause a catastrophic injury, including automobile accidents, work-related accidents, sporting accidents, product liability accidents, birth accidents, aviation accidents and countless other unfortunate events.
What are Some Catastrophic Injury Symptoms?
Catastrophic injuries can have wide-ranging physical and psychological effects. While some symptoms may appear immediately after an injury, others may take days or weeks to appear, or may not appear at all.
The most common catastrophic injury symptoms include:
- Extreme pain in back, neck or other areas of the body
- Persistent headaches
- Speech problems
- Loss of balance
- Blurred vision
- Concentration problems
Always see a doctor if you, your child or a loved one has been involved in an incident that might lead to a catastrophic injury and result in any of the symptoms above. Immediate and emergency medical care is of the utmost importance to determine any damage that may have been done.
