A serious injury, such as a broken bone, may require hospitalization, surgery, therapy and time to heal. Many people who suffer serious injuries recover almost completely, even if it takes a few months or a year. At some point, they are able to return to what seems like a normal life once again.
How does a catastrophic injury differ?
A catastrophic injury, on the other hand, dramatically and radically changes a person’s life permanently. With a spinal cord injury come paralysis and disability requiring accommodations and personal care assistance. A traumatic brain injury (TBI) may leave a person unable to speak, may damage body functions and typically leaves a person unable to work full time. An amputation or severe disfigurement will change a person’s life dramatically.
