What is a Serious Injury?
Serious injuries are injuries that have a significant and severe impact on a person’s life. They are injuries which cause catastrophic damage to the injured person, requiring extensive or life-long care and treatment. Some examples of serious injuries include:
Spinal injuries such as paraplegia, quadriplegia and tetraplegia
Brain injuries causing issues with your cognitive, physical or social functioning
Psychiatric injuries causing severe mental issues
Disfigurement from multiple injuries, severe burns, scarring and amputations
Birth defects or injuries caused during birth that have a serious impact on the child’s life
Multiple injuries i.e. fractures to limbs, internal injuries
How are serious injuries suffered?
Serious injuries can occur in many ways such as in motor vehicle accidents, at work, as a result of medical negligence, and in public places. Serious injuries occur in any place or circumstance that any other injury would occur, but differ from other injuries due to the severity of the impact the injuries have on your life.
