The term “catastrophic injury” refers to severe injury to the spine, spinal cord, or brain. The National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research classifies catastrophic injuries based on the following three outcomes associated with them:

  • Fatal catastrophic injuries or catastrophic injuries that result in death.

  • Catastrophic injuries that cause severe permanent functional disability.

  • Catastrophic injuries causing immediate severe head or neck trauma without permanent disability.
     

Spinal Cord Injuries

There are two categories that identify the types of spinal cord injuries: Incomplete and Complete. Both categories are broad, though each encompasses more specific types of spinal injuries that define the degree of function the victim may lose.

With an incomplete spinal cord injury, the cord is partially severed. Having only a partial detachment means that it is possible for the victim to regain function, either to some degree or completely. The amount of function the victim retains depends on the severity of the injury to the spinal cord as well as other injuries.

More than 60% of all spinal cord injuries are incomplete, meaning the spinal cord is not completely severed. This is a large decrease of complete spinal cord injuries because of advances in medicine which allows doctors as well as first responders to have increased knowledge about what to do with a suspected spinal cord injury.

Knowing the location of the spinal injury and whether or not the spinal cord is completely severed of if the injury is incomplete allows the victim to achieve the best prognosis. While there are many types of incomplete or partial spinal cord injuries, the most common ones are: Anterior Cord Syndrome, Brown-Sequard Syndrome, Central Cord Syndrome, Tetraplegia, Paraplegia, Triplegia, and Injuries below the lumbar area.

Traumatic Brain Injuries

A Traumatic Brain Injury is a complex injury that results from either a violent blow or jolt to the victim’s head or body, or from an object, including a shattered piece of skull, that penetrates the victim’s brain tissue.

A mild traumatic brain injury might only affect the victim’s brain cells for a short time. But a serious traumatic brain injury can result in long-term complications or even death.

Traumatic brain injuries may cause symptoms to appear immediately following the traumatic event, though sometimes, symptoms do not appear until days or weeks after the trauma.

If you or a family member was injured (or if your loved one was killed) due to a catastrophic injury, you can’t go up against the negligent party alone, but an experienced attorney can.
