This level of injury goes beyond the common neck and back sprains people may incur do to a minor fender bender or slip and fall on a wet floor. Catastrophic injuries often require long-term medical treatment, repeated surgeries and even ongoing rehabilitation and in-home care. They are life-altering events. These horrendous injuries have a profound impact on your quality of life. The things you may take for granted such as biking, swimming and interacting with friends and loved ones can all be diminished in some fashion. Catastrophic injuries can also permanently impede your ability to hold gainful employment.
