Any injury that significantly and negatively alters your life.
Accidents can happen anywhere and at any time. Activities as simple as driving your car to work or walking in the grocery store can turn into a nightmare when an accident happens that causes a catastrophic injury. These injuries can include everything from burns, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and more. Some are life-threatening, but even those that aren't can still change people's lives forever. Catastrophic injuries are those that significantly alter a person's life. They usually involve the loss of motor functions, a limb or a major disruption in the central nervous system. When people suffer injuries of this type, it often means that their bodies will never be the same again. It could affect their ability to hold jobs in the future, or care for their families.
