Corpus Christi Catastrophic Injury Attorneys

We Refuse to Back Down Until Our Clients Get the Answers They Deserve

Catastrophic injuries are extremely severe, affecting an individual’s mobility and/or cognitive abilities. This is a legal term that is used to classify the type and severity of a person’s injuries. Catastrophic injuries are categorized as severe because they can completely shift the course of a person’s life. Most of these injuries require millions of dollars in medical expenses and lifelong care. For these reasons, the time after an accident can be devastating.

Our Corpus Christi catastrophic injury attorneys have helped hundreds of injured victims recover the compensation they rightfully deserve. We understand how difficult it can be to deal with an overwhelming amount of medical expenses, and although monetary compensation may not relieve the grievances, it can help support your treatment and overall recovery.

Common Types of Catastrophic Injuries

In most cases, victims of catastrophic injuries require life-long treatments that can be extremely costly. For example, victims who suffered an amputation or paralysis may have to pay for a prosthesis and other equipment to accommodate their injuries. An individual’s expenses for medical treatment will vary depending on their type of injury, but catastrophic injury often comes with a six-figure-sized amount of medical care.

Different types of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Acoustic trauma: This can cause serious hearing disabilities that are permanent and life-changing.
  • Brain injuries: Injuries to the head can cause traumatic brain injuries that can alter a person's physical and mental functions for life.
  • Blunt force trauma: This is usually cases when a specific region of the body is struck by an object—it commonly occurs on the head.
  • Burns, scarring and disfigurement injuries: Burn injuries can lead to serious physical hardship, emotional suffering, and severe long-term medical costs. Other injuries, like amputations, can change a person's ability to interact with the world around them.
  • Neck and back injuries: About one million workers suffer neck and back injuries annually. These types of injuries can cause paralysis or other forms of permanent damage.
  • Neurological injuries: This can often affect the neurological system, most commonly your cognitive abilities.
  • Spinal cord injuries: This can result in limb dysfunction as well as complete paralysis.
  • Vision loss and other eye injuries: This can result in permanent vision disabilities and is one of the most common injuries in the workplace.

Catastrophic Injury FAQ

Who will pay for my treatment after a serious injury?

The answer to this question will depend on how you were injured. If you were injured while working at a construction site or chemical plant, for example, you should be covered by workers' compensation. If you were injured at sea working on an offshore rig, your case may be covered by the Jones Act. Car accidents and truck accidents that cause catastrophic injuries are typically covered by personal injury lawsuits.

If we take on your case, our team will work closely with you to determine who should pay, and how.

What will it cost to hire your Corpus Christi catastrophic injury attorneys?

We handle all injury cases on a contingent fee basis, which means we only get paid if we recover a settlement or win a jury award for our clients. We also cover all upfront costs, so you don't have to worry about paying for anything out of pocket. We will only accept payment if and when we recover compensation on your behalf.

What is the lifelong cost of a catastrophic injury?

The lifelong cost of medical treatment, supplies, and continued care for a catastrophic injury can easily reach into the millions. A 25-year-old suffering from paraplegia, for example, may face $2.3 million in medical care, physical therapy, assistive devices, in-home care, and other treatment over the course of their life (according to a report by the National Spinal Cord Injury Statistical Center). This does not take into account the person's inability to work and earn a living, which would add to the financial losses to consider.

The cost of a catastrophic injury is considerable, and not just financially. It takes a profound physical and emotional toll.
