What is the difference between a brain injury and a catastrophic injury?
A brain injury is one type of catastrophic injury. Car accidents in California are a major source of traumatic brain injury.
But there are other severe injuries that can also have a huge impact on a person’s life.
The Cambridge English Dictionary defines ‘catastrophic’ as a ‘single, sudden event that causes great suffering or destruction’.
Catastrophic injuries can include:
- Severe burns
Burn injuries can be caused by open flames, chemicals, radiation, and electricity.
- Loss of a limb
This can happen in the workplace. We have extensive knowledge of the system en we can help you get the greatest possible reimbursement from all available sources. It can be from workers’ compensation, Social Security disability or through a lawsuit.
A catastrophic incident can cause paralysis of the spinal cord and leave the victim paraplegic or quadriplegic. Nerve damage is permanent and the victim has to face a lifetime of physical-, emotional – and financial challenges.
- Injuries from a car crash
Auto accident injuries can be horrific. Cars can roll over, roofs can collapse and the occupants crushed. This can cause a traumatic brain injury, a spinal cord injury, or even death (that can be wrongful in certain circumstances.)
