Common Examples of Serious or Catastrophic Injuries

USC Title 42, section 3796b defines a catastrophic injury as "an injury that permanently prevents an individual from performing any gainful work." In other words, if your injury leaves you permanently damaged and has a serious impact on the victim's life and/or family.

Severe injuries which cause some type of disability or require long-term treatment are often considered serious or catastrophic. Catastrophic injuries take a significant amount of time to recover from and cause considerable pain and suffering. Although they may not always be permanent, serious injuries often never fully heal.

  • Brain damage
  • Permanent scarring
  • Loss of limb
  • Burn injuries
  • Nerve damage
  • Paralysis

What is typically covered in a catastrophic injury settlement? While each case differs depending on the specifics of the accident and the injuries, a typical catastrophic injury settlement seeks to obtain compensation for the following damages:

  • Long-term disabilities or therapy

  • Lost wages or income (both past and future)
  • Pain and suffering

Seeking Justice for Your Injury in Rapid City

In many catastrophic injury cases, victims of serious injuries of this nature may sustain a disability that requires life-altering changes. These consequences all add up and can weigh heavily on you. Fortunately, you do not have to deal with these consequences alone.
