There is a difference between an injury that takes someone out for a certain amount of time and an injury that takes a person out permanently. Some injuries like bruises and lacerations can take a specific time to heal, even though they are painful. Some injuries like spinal cord injuries and burn injuries are permanently life-changing, and victims may never recover from the trauma these injuries cause. Even worse, the injuries can cause additional pain to victims in the future. Victims of these catastrophic injuries are entitled to compensation if a negligent party causes their injuries.

For an injury to be considered catastrophic, it has to reduce a person’s ability to work significantly. Although many states have different definitions for catastrophic injuries, the consensus is that a person’s ability to work must be affected for an injury to be considered catastrophic. A person’s career must be substantially disrupted from the injury to be considered catastrophic.
