Catastrophic injuries: What you should expect

When you hear that you have suffered a catastrophic injury, you may not be sure what that means exactly. Does it mean you are terminally injured and likely to die? Does it mean your recovery will never go beyond a certain point? A catastrophic injury is defined as an injury that leads to permanent disability, a fractured neck or serious head injury. Other catastrophic injuries include sudden cardiac arrest or cardiac disruptions. Some kinds of catastrophic injuries do resolve over time. For example, if you suffer a head injury, it may be severe at the time of injury, but with hard work, recovery could be possible.

That doesn't mean you can't take some drivers to court, though.
