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 $10 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. No matter what.
Rebuilding Your Life After Serious Injury
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 to the core. The companies that are responsible for inflicting catastrophic injuries must be held accountable. Arnold & Itkin is the foremost advocate for people whose lives are destroyed by negligence.
Our serious injury law firm has secured $10 billion for clients suffering injuries such as:
- Loss of limb
- Paralysis and spinal cord damage
- Burns, scarring, and disfigurement
- Brain damage
- Blunt force trauma
- Vision loss and eye injuries
- Acoustic trauma
People who suffer from catastrophic injuries or have a family member with catastrophic injuries are going through the worst struggle of their life. Figuring out what to do next is stressful, with a lot of uncertainty and unanswered questions. The stakes couldn’t be higher, which is why we take our responsibility to these clients seriously. That’s why we do everything within our power to get our clients the best medical care and the largest recoveries possible. That’s our duty: providing security, guidance, and a light in a dark time. No matter what.

"Always bet on justice. It takes a lot of time and resources to win a case against big defendants, and some cases are easier to win than others. But this doesn’t matter at Arnold & Itkin.

No matter what.

What Classifies 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, psychological trauma, loss of hearing or vision, or even a debilitating illness.
What Should I Expect from My 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 they have in the bank. Our firm takes cases on a contingency fee basis, so we handle all the costs of every case upfront, and we get a portion of the resulting verdict or settlement, but 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.

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.

Two years is a fairly short time in legal terms, so if you’ve been injured or made ill, then speak with our firm as soon as possible.
