- Brain injuries — Whether mild, moderate or severe, a brain injury can have lifelong consequences such as memory problems, confusion, personality changes, mood disorders, headaches, dizziness, compromised motor skills and speech, and loss of vision. Severe brain injuries may result in coma, organ failure or wrongful death.
- Spinal cord injuries — The effects of these injuries vary according to the location on the spine and severity of the injury. Victims may suffer chronic pain or temporary or permanent paralysis of one or more parts of the body. Paraplegia and quadriplegia can lead to secondary conditions such as pressure sores and organ dysfunction. In the worst cases, death is a possibility.
- Amputations — Whether losing a finger or a limb, an amputation is one of the most debilitating injuries a person can suffer. Medical costs include surgery, months of rehabilitative therapy and occupational therapy, pain management, and prostheses.
- Burns — A severe burn injury causes pain, scarring, and nerve and tissue damage. Dangerous secondary conditions include infection, organ failure, cardiac and respiratory arrest, and lung and inhalation injuries. These conditions can lead to the death of the victim.
- Drowning — Lack of oxygen due to drowning can cause brain injuries or death if the person is not revived in time.
- Loss of vision, hearing or speech — Any of these losses, whether partial or complete, will cause disability. Victims will need rehabilitative therapy and occupational therapy.
