When an injury is so debilitating it leaves the victim unable to return to work or to his or her normal, pre-injury life, it is considered catastrophic. These types of injuries can be temporary or permanent and, in nearly every personal injury case, they affect both the victim and his/her loved ones immensely. The cost of treating a catastrophic injury can easily exceed millions of dollars over the course of a lifetime.
