A casualty was a person who suffered an accident, injury, or other trauma. It often referred to fatalities, but non-fatal injuries were also considered casualties.

Military use indicated those combatants rendered combat-ineffective, whether by death, injury, or capture. Civilian casualties was a military term that described civilian or non-combatant persons killed or injured by military action. (TOS: "A Taste of Armageddon"; VOY: "Memorial")

During wars, such as the Dominion War, the numbers of casualties would increase significantly, especially among military personnel. (DS9: "In the Pale Moonlight", etc.)

During Earth's World War III nuclear weapons accounted for six hundred million casualties. (VOY: "In the Flesh")

When Trip Tucker suggested using stun grenades to free Malcolm Reed from the Novans, Captain Jonathan Archer dismissed this suggestion as he didn't want to risk any more casualties. (ENT: "Terra Nova")

Because of the high tensions between Andoria and Vulcan would any casualty make the situation even more worse, according to Sub-commander T'Pol in 2151. (ENT: "The Andorian Incident")

To justify his actions taking a Nausicaan prisoner and hunting down a Nausicaan ship, Matthew Ryan told Shaw that they've taken enough casualties and it was time they started inflicting some of their own. (ENT: "Fortunate Son")
