Serious Bodily Harm and Injuries

Distinguished from other types of harm such as emotional, mental or psychological, serious bodily harm or injury is a phrase devoted to grievous harm, and it may stem from intentional or unintentional actions. While the actual definition varies slightly from state to state, the general consensus is that this level of harm interferes with an individual’s health or comfort. It might result in long-lasting pain, disability or death. Without question, these types of injuries are catastrophic and may include:

  • Paralysis
  • Amputation
  • Loss of function in a limb
  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Serious lacerations
  • Burn injury
  • Disfigurement

While there are a number of ways that these injuries can be inflicted, most cases involve recklessness and intentional crimes.
