A catastrophic injury is a serious injury that has the potential to leave permanent damage to its victim. Typically, a catastrophic accident is caused by physical trauma to the brain or the spinal cord, neck, back, face, and limbs. The repercussions of a catastrophic injury can have both short-term and long-term after-effects to a person because they are so severe. An injury to the brain or the spinal cord can leave a person physically handicapped. A burn victim may be disfigured for life. Recovery from a catastrophic accident can be difficult.
