Brownsville Catastrophic Injury Attorneys
Representing Victims of Catastrophic Accidents in Brownsville & Nationwide
The word catastrophe comes from a Greek word meaning “overturn,” referring to the disastrous finish of a drama—usually a tragedy. Perhaps that's why the American Medical Association uses the word "catastrophic" to refer to severe injuries. They don’t use this word to describe the amount of pain experienced, or where the damage took place, but to explain how injuries turn survivors' lives upside-down. Catastrophic injuries are categorized as severe because they completely shift the course of a person’s life. Most of these injuries require millions of dollars in medical expenses and life-long care.
If you or a loved one have sustained catastrophic injuries, you are entitled to seek compensation for your damages. Seeking compensation can help you cover your medical expenses, treatments, and overall care.

Common Types of Catastrophic Injuries
There are a variety of injuries that can be considered catastrophic. These injuries usually require life-long treatments that can be extremely costly. Victims who suffer a lost limb or paralysis may have to pay for prostheses and equipment to accommodate their injuries. Medical treatment expenses vary depending on the type of catastrophic injury sustained.
Different types of catastrophic injuries include:
Acoustic trauma can cause severe hearing disabilities that are permanent and life-changing. The sensory hearing is lost and damaged within the inner ear.
Blunt Force Trauma
This type of injury is the initial trauma that can develop into contusions, abrasions, lacerations, and bone fractures. This occurs when the body is struck by an object, commonly on the head.
Burns, Scars and Disfigurement
Burn injuries can lead to serious physical damage, loss of sensation, chronic pain, and scars.
Neck and Back Injuries
These types of injuries can cause paralysis and other forms of permanent damage. Neck and back injuries are prevalent amongst injured workers.
This type of injury affects the neurological system and a person’s ability to think and form memories.
Spinal Cord Injuries
This type of injury can damage any part of the spinal cord or nerves at the end of the spinal canal. It affects a person’s ability to control their limbs.
Vision Loss and Other Eye Injuries
Vision loss results in permanent disability and often results in the loss of a survivor's career. It is one of the most common injuries in the workplace.
