What Is a Catastrophic Injury?
The term catastrophic injury refers to an injury that is serious enough to affect the victim’s life drastically or permanently. It encompasses traumatic injuries that leave the victim with a major – and possibly permanent – loss of a bodily function. Some of the most common catastrophic injury cases that we see include:
- Bone fractures
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Nerve damage
- Amputations/loss of limb
- Severe burns
- Permanent scarring or disfigurement
- Serious birth injuries
- The loss of a fetus
- Wrongful death
A catastrophic injury can impact a victim not only physically, but mentally and emotionally, as well. A severe long-term injury can impact independence, quality of life, enjoyment of daily activities, self-esteem and self-confidence. It can also interfere with the ability to work and make a living.

How Long Do I Have to File a Catastrophic Injuries Claim in Connecticut?
There is a deadline on the ability to file a personal injury claim in Connecticut known as the statute of limitations. This deadline gives you no more than two years from the date of your injury or the date that you discover an injury to file. You will only have one year, however, to file a catastrophic workplace injury claim under Connecticut law. It is essential to speak to an attorney as soon as possible after an accident to discuss your legal rights so that you do not risk missing your time limit.
