CatastrophicInjuryPicIn the field of catastrophic injury law, we are often confronted with the question, “What makes an injury catastrophic?” This seems like a reasonable thing to ask, especially since the term “catastrophic injury” can occur in a variety of contexts, from truck and auto accidents, to work place injuries, to prime time television.

The reality is that I can only provide you with a working definition that is widely used by fellow lawyers and also in the medical community. There is no statute or case law that really buttons down what a catastrophic injury is simply because it can take so many shapes.

Catastrophic Injury Typically Means a Permanent Impairment

Stock-Accident-PhotoThe holiday package delivery time is in full swing for carriers like UPS and Fed EX. UPS expects this to be one of the busiest years ever for them, with an expected 750 million packages shipped over the Christmas holiday. That is a lot of boxes, people! All over the news we are hearing of the horrors of driving for these companies, with stories like this one where an Amazon delivery man actually pooped in someone’s driveway and drove off. Many other stories have come out about the carriers practices causing drivers to work long hours with no breaks and practically having to speed every where they go to make deliveries on time. As a result, we have seen a huge increase in the number of accidents involving drivers of UPS, Fed Ex, Amazon and the like over the last few years.

According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration website, in the 24-month period prior to December 3, 2017, UPS drivers were reported to have been involved in 2,003 crashes, 689 involving injuries, including 49 deaths. Since 2012, the number of crashes has increased by 38%; the number of injures has increased by 27%; and the number of fatalities has increased by 25.6%. Those may seem like crazy high statistics, but wait until we get to FedEx. Their numbers are astronomical.

Also according the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Admnistration, in the 24-month period prior to December 3, 2017, FedEx Express drivers were reported to have been involved in 1762 crashes, 575 involving injuries, including 41 deaths. Since 2012, the number of crashes has increased by 254.5%; the number of injuries has increased by 192%; and the number of fatalities has increased by 273%. 273%! That is awful.
