What exactly is a catastrophic injury?

3. Organ Damage

In addition to directly affecting organ function, organ damage can impact other health areas, leading to lengthy recovery processes and potential incompleteness.

4. Burns

Burns not only alter one’s appearance, affecting self-esteem, but also bring could bring infections, pain, and other challenges.
