US legal code (Section 1365(h)(3) of Title 18) defines serious injury as an injury leading to one or more of the following:
- Significant disfigurement
- Permanent loss of an organ’s use
- Loss of a body function or system
- Loss of a fetus
- Temporary impairment from daily activities (for at least 90 of the 180 days after the injury)
There is no set in stone legal definition for a catastrophic injury as there is for a serious injury. However, a catastrophic injury is a subset of serious injuries- a catastrophic injury is one that results in long-term and/or permanent disability or disfigurement. Catastrophic injuries often lead to a huge loss in quality of life, have a long and difficult recovery process, and years of medical treatment.
Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Brain Injury Cases
Traumatic brain injuries are defined as an injury, trauma, or blow to the head that disrupts your brain’s normal functions. Traumatic brain injuries can cause you to lose cognitive or motor function, and either loss of function can be scary, life-changing, and emotionally and mentally traumatizing for both victims and their loved ones.
Spinal Cord Injury Cases
As many as 450,000 Americans live with spinal cord injuries, and an approximately 7,800 new spinal cord injuries are reported each year. Spinal cord accidents at the neck level can render someone without the use of their trunk, arms, and legs. An injured lower spine may lead to loss of the legs and lower body.
Burn and Scar Injury Cases
Accidents that lead to burn and scar injuries often leave victims with a daily reminder of the trauma they have experienced. Burn and scar injuries can happen in the workplace, in vehicular accidents, in slip-and-fall cases, and many other ways.
