Catastrophic injuries are unlike any other personal injuries. They often result in lasting or permanent impairment, disfigurement, or disability. Whether the victim is suffering from paralysis or severe burns, the consequences can alter the course of their life. If you or a loved one is currently a victim of such serious injuries, you know how challenging it can be to ever feel normal again.
Athletes who play contact sports such as football, rugby, and hockey do so with the knowledge that they are likely to suffer some sort of injuries. In fact, more than 3.5 million children receive medical treatment for sports injuries each year. While the sporting industry has made a big push in recent years to promote helmet-wearing and the seriousness of brain injuries, it doesn't change the fact that they are still one of the most common injuries occurring in athletes today.
