Amarillo Catastrophic Injury Attorneys

If a Serious Injury Changed Your Life, We’re Here to Fight for Your Future

Catastrophic injuries are so severe that they alter the course of a person’s life. They may occur in any type of accident, such as a fall from scaffolding at a construction site to a collision with an 18-wheeler. Any person may be at risk of suffering a catastrophic injury when an individual or a company fails to act with proper care.

Instead of losing hope, work with a team of Amarillo catastrophic injury lawyers who can fight for the treatment, ongoing care, and support that you’ll need for the rest of your life. Get the answers that bring peace of mind to you and your family. Recover the compensation that will help you rebuild and move on.

Linking Negligence to Catastrophic Injuries

Nearly every type of catastrophic injury can be linked to the actions (or failures to act) of a person or corporation. A chemical plant supervisor who ignores reports of a malfunctioning valve. A driver who chooses to get behind the wheel even though he’s had one too many drinks. A lifeguard who turns her back on swimmers while she’s supposed to be on duty. A manufacturing company that cuts corners and releases an unsafe product to unsuspecting consumers. These are all examples of negligence and wrongdoing that can have catastrophic consequences.

At Arnold & Itkin, we represent survivors of traumatic injuries, including:

  • Brain Injuries
    A direct blow to the head or the sudden impact of a fall or collision may cause a brain injury that leaves a person with diminished cognitive abilities, memory loss, a changed personality, speech problems, and a host of other problems that forever impact their ability to work, communicate, and handle normal activities.
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
    Spinal cord injuries include any type of damage to the spine or spinal cord, which can lead to partial or total paralysis. Loss of sensation and function may occur in part or all of the body, depending on the location of the spinal cord injury and its severity.
  • Severe Burns
    One of the most painful injuries to endure, a severe burn can cause scarring and disfigurement. Burns can damage nerves, muscle tissue, and even bone. They can also lead to loss of muscle control and function, and the road to recovery is typically long and challenging.
  • Broken Bones
    Fractures and crush injuries can lead to broken bones that cause permanent challenges for a survivor, affecting gait, balance, fine motor skills, and mobility.
  • Amputation/Loss of Limb
    An extremity or limb may be traumatically amputated in an accident or may require surgical amputation if it is so severely damaged that it cannot be salvaged. This will leave a survivor dealing with physical and emotional challenges of living and working without a finger, toe, hand, foot, or limb.
  • Hearing or Vision Loss
    Catastrophic injuries may also affect vision and hearing. Exposure to light or loud nose can leave a person with permanent damage, as there is no way to fully restore sight or hearing once lost. Exposure to chemicals or physical trauma can also lead to blindness or deafness.

Our Amarillo catastrophic injury law firm fights to help survivors and their families get the best care and the level of support that will improve their futures.

Holding At-Fault Parties Accountable in Amarillo, TX

Insurance companies and other corporations are in the business of making money. They have every right to do so, but not at the expense of consumers, their employees, and the public. Serving Amarillo and all of Texas and the U.S., our team at Arnold & Itkin fights to help people who have been catastrophically injured when companies put profits over safety.

Our team handles workers’ compensation claims, personal injury lawsuits, product liability actions, Jones Act claims, and all other types of civil suits involving negligence and wrongdoing. Catastrophic injuries require emergency treatment and ongoing care. Victims may need help with daily activities, may require assistive devices like wheelchairs or prosthetics, and may be unable to work and earn a living.

The companies responsible for these catastrophic injuries need to be held accountable so survivors and their families can recover the financial compensation they need for all of their treatment, ongoing care, and support—for life.

Catastrophic Injury FAQ

Is a broken arm or leg considered a catastrophic injury?

Depending on the severity of the break, an injury to the arm or leg may be considered catastrophic in nature. Broken and crushed bones can affect motor function and leave a person with limited abilities, on a temporary or permanent basis. With cases of this nature, our Amarillo serious injury attorneys seek the level of damages that will help our clients truly rebuild.

What causes catastrophic injuries?

Catastrophic injuries may be caused by accidents or intentional wrongdoing. Traffic collisions, construction site accidents, falls from heights, defective and dangerous products, assaults or attacks, workplace accidents, and many other incidents and situations can cause life-altering injuries. If you’ve been injured, it’s important to understand what caused you harm and how you can get the care, treatment, and support you need.
