What is Considered a Catastrophic Injury?

According to the Cambridge Dictionary, the term "catastrophic" is defined as an action or event that causes sudden and very great harm.

It is important to know what is considered a catastrophic injury after an accident because these types of claims are handled differently from the average personal injury claims. An injury that is catastrophic can present unique challenges when compared to soft tissue injuries. The compensation and damage caps for these injuries may differ from other personal injury claims.
