Differences Between Catastrophic Injuries and Other Injuries  

Catastrophic injuries are not just any injuries. They are severe and life-altering. Catastrophic injuries require extensive medical intervention and profoundly impact a person’s life and livelihood, causing immense financial strain. The impact of a catastrophic injury lasts months, years, or even the rest of the patient’s life.  

In addition to medical care, catastrophic injuries often require ongoing physical therapy and occupational therapy, in-home assistance, and modifications to the home and vehicles. They can make it harder or impossible to earn a living, participate in recreation, and perform the tasks of daily living, such as cooking, cleaning, bathing, and dressing.
