Fighting for People with Catastrophic Injuries in Beaumont, TX

Catastrophic injuries aren't defined by a part of the body or how the accident occurred. Instead, they are defined by their effect on your body and mind. Legally, an injury is catastrophic if it impedes your cognition or mobility in the long term.

Catastrophic injuries include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
  • Paralysis
  • Amputated limbs
  • Neck and back injuries
  • Severe burn injuries
  • Broken and fractured bones

Many clients come to us because their catastrophic injury rendered them or a spouse unable to work—while requiring vast spending on doctors, check-ups, and specialists. For them, our job was figuring out exactly how much their injury would cost them for the rest of their lives and then holding the at-fault party accountable. Our results not only changed our client's lives but also the lives of their spouses and children. By providing for their medical needs in the present and future, we were able to help families rebuild their lives and face the future with hope. That's why people call our firm.

Types of Compensation for Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Claims

Families facing these times are entitled to seek compensation for their losses. While monetary compensation cannot undo the harm that has been done, it can provide the financial stability necessary to move forward. Understanding the types of damages you can recover is crucial for ensuring you receive the total compensation you deserve.

Economic Damages

Economic damages cover tangible financial losses. They are intended to restore the financial position of the victim or their family as closely as possible to what it was before the incident. 

  • Medical Bills: Compensation for the costs of hospital stays, surgeries, medication, and more.
  • Lost Wages: Compensation for income lost due to the inability to work while recovering.
  • Loss of Earning Capacity: Compensation for the future loss of income if the injury results in an inability to work.
  • Funeral & Burial Expenses: Costs associated with the funeral and burial of a loved one in wrongful death cases.

Non-Economic Damages

Non-economic damages address intangible losses that do not have a specific monetary value. 

  • Pain & Suffering: Compensation for experienced physical pain and emotional distress.
  • Emotional Distress: Compensation for psychological effects such as anxiety and depression.
  • Loss of Consortium: Compensation for the loss of companionship, affection, and support.
  • Loss of Enjoyment of Life: Compensation for the diminished ability to enjoy daily activities.

Punitive Damages

Punitive damages are awarded in cases where the defendant's actions were particularly egregious or exhibited gross negligence. These damages are intended to punish the defendant and deter similar behavior in the future. Punitive damages are awarded at the court’s discretion when the defendant's conduct is found to be especially harmful.

Below are some examples of what can qualify for a wrongful death claim:

  • Crane accidents from unsafe construction operations

Requirements to File a Wrongful Death Claim in Beaumont

Eligibility to file a wrongful death claim varies; however, most states give the victim's children and spouse the primary right. The parents or other relatives will not be able to claim a wrongful death if the child or spouse is already pursuing one. You can contact a Beaumont wrongful death attorney for a free case review to determine if you are eligible to file.

In Texas, the right to file a wrongful death claim is typically reserved for family members, including:

  • Spouses: The surviving husband or wife of the deceased.
  • Children: Both biological and legally adopted children of the deceased.
  • Parents: The mother and father of the deceased.

In some cases, the personal representative or executor of the estate can file a claim on behalf of the beneficiaries.

About Beaumont, TX

Beaumont, nestled along the Neches River, serves as the seat of Jefferson County and boasts a population of 115,282 residents as of 2020. Its origins date back to 1824 when Noah Tevis established the settlement of Tevis Bluff, later selling land to Henry Millard in 1834 to found the town of Beaumont. Initially centered around farming and cattle, Beaumont's economic landscape flourished in the late 1800s, driven by industries like lumber, rice, and shipping. However, it was the 1901 discovery of the Lucas Gusher on Spindletop Hill that catapulted Beaumont into a boomtown.
