What types of injuries are classified as catastrophic?

Catastrophic injury typically refers to one which requires full-time care and/or causes chronic pain, speech problems, comprehension problems, restricts you from being able to work, or move voluntarily. Some catastrophic injuries will heal after several years, but others will last a lifetime. When a catastrophic injury is caused by another person’s negligence – such as a truck driver speeding on a highway – he or she should be held fully responsible for all of the damages caused, which may include lifelong medical care.
