Catastrophic injuries aren't defined by pain or where the injury took place. They're defined by how much they change our lives. From specialized equipment to changing our relationship with our bodies, catastrophic injuries are life-altering.

No Matter How Tough the Fight

When people suffer life-altering injuries, they need every resource to provide for themselves. Other law firms sometimes turn away tough cases: cases that require months of preparation, elbow grease, and serious resources. Not us. 

In fact, the tougher the fight, the better. 

Our refusal to be intimidated has helped us win more than $20 billion for our clients, including record-breaking verdicts in catastrophic injury cases. If we take your case, you can bet we’ll fight for you with everything we’ve got until we win. 

Our firm has represented clients in some of the worst disasters that could happen to anyone: apartment fires, plant explosions, crane collapses, toxic exposure, offshore disasters, and more. Every one of these cases had seemingly unbeatable opponents and impossibly complex investigations. We still won big for our clients. We have the experience, resources, and skill to handle any kind of accident case. No matter what.

Common Questions

  • What’s a Houston Serious Injury Lawyer?

    A Houston serious injury lawyer helps those with catastrophic injuries recover as much as possible from their accident. Since serious accidents are often life-altering and require extensive care, hiring a Houston catastrophic injury lawyer can help you receive the full amount of compensation that you deserve rather than part of it. With a serious injury law firm, you can secure the finances required to live the rest of your life as comfortably as possible after your accident.
  • What's Classified as a Catastrophic Injury?

    Medically and legally, a catastrophic injury is any injury that impairs a person’s cognitive function, mobility, or quality of life permanently or long-term. Aside from that definition, a catastrophic injury can be almost anything: a lost limb, paralysis, brain damage, burns, psychological trauma, loss of hearing or vision, or even a debilitating illness.
  • What Should I Expect from My Catastrophic Injury Attorney?

    You need an attorney who will answer your questions and return your calls quickly. Truly great lawyers will do more than that—they’ll make you feel welcome, calm your fears, help you set accurate expectations, and help you with more than just the legal paperwork. We often help our clients find excellent medical specialists, check in on their progress, and handle negotiations for medical bills as well as insurance claims. And, of course, we’ll aggressively litigate your case against whomever you’re facing.
  • How Much Will It Cost to Take My Case?

    Our clients never get a bill or an invoice for our services. People who’ve been in catastrophic accidents deserve justice, regardless of how much money they have saved up in the bank. Our firm takes cases on a contingency fee basis, so we handle all the costs of every case upfront. We get a portion of the resulting verdict or settlement, only if we win.
  • Can I Hire a Texas Lawyer If I Live in Another State?

    Absolutely. When you’ve got a case with lifelong implications, you need the freedom to choose the best lawyer for the job, no matter where they are. Our firm has represented clients from all 50 states, providing people nationwide with the support they needed to rebuild their lives after a catastrophic injury. Speak with us today to discuss your options.
  • How Much Time Do I Have to File a Claim?

    In Texas, the statute of limitations for a personal injury case is two years from the date of injury. Other states have different deadlines. Your time to act may be short, so if you or a loved one has been injured or made ill, then speak with our firm as soon as possible.
