Common catastrophic injuries include serious spine injuries resulting in paraplegia or quadriplegia, amputation, loss of ambulation, traumatic brain injuries and brain impairment, permanent loss of a limb and blindness. These injuries are usually caused by serious accidents. With these types of injuries, victims are usually unable to provide for themselves or care for their families. When serious accidents occur the law must determine the extent of the damages in terms of significant life change to the injured person. The most severe disabling conditions are found under the legal definition of catastrophic impairment. Catastrophic impairment can be the result of fire, car accidents, faulty products, workplace accidents, truck accidents and many other accidents.
