El Paso Catastrophic Injury Lawyers
When Accidents Change Lives, Our Team Fights for Answers
The word catastrophe was first used in ancient Greece. It described the sudden and tragic demise of a character in a play. Today, we use the word catastrophic to describe life-altering injuries. When accidents happen, survivors are often left alone to pick up the pieces of their life. If they’ve sustained serious injuries, this task can feel impossible.
At Arnold & Itkin LLP, the mission of our El Paso catastrophic injury lawyers is to fight for the compensation a client needs to live with the devastating results of accidents.
Simply defined, a catastrophic injury is anything that changed a person’s ability to function—cognitively or physically—for the rest of their lives. These injuries often impact the brain, nervous system, and other vital parts of the body. When a negligent party changes the rest of a person’s life by causing them to sustain a serious injury, we’re the team that will demand answers. While nothing can change what happened, we fight for the compensation that makes sure clients can live as comfortably as possible.

Common Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Catastrophic injuries are serious and change the rest of a person’s life. As a result, there’s many types of injuries that can be considered catastrophic.
Common types of catastrophic injuries caused by accidents include the following:
- Burn injuries are excruciating, these injuries require extensive medical treatment. Once healed, burn survivors might have significant disfigurement and scaring. Often, tightened skin around old burn wounds can inhibit a person’s motor functions.
- Blunt force trauma occurs when part of the body is hit with significant force. When blunt force trauma occurs to a person’s head, they can suffer from cognitive issues for the rest of their life.
- Vision loss from an accident changes a person’s life by inhibiting their ability to interact with the world around them. Often, a person with vision loss finds themselves unable to do the same job they had before an accident.
- Spinal cord injuries are serious because the spinal column houses the most important nerves in the body. Injuries to the spinal cord can cause full- or partial-paralysis among other serious effects.
- Acoustic trauma changes a person’s ability to interact with the rest of the world similarly to vision injuries. Besides forcing a person to adapt to a completely different way of living, acoustic injuries can inhibit a person’s ability to earn a living as they once did.
- Neck and back injuries can cause a person to live with permanent pain. In many instances, they can also impact a person’s ability to move.
While we refer to the injuries above as “common," we want to be clear: there is nothing acceptable about these injuries. No one should have their life changed by a preventable accident.
