Catastrophic Injury FAQ
I am partially to blame for my injuries. Do I still have a case?
If you were seriously injured, you may still have grounds for a claim or lawsuit—even if you believe you were to blame. There are some situations, such as workplace accidents, where you are entitled to benefits even if you were at fault. The only exceptions may be if you were under the influence of alcohol or intentionally caused yourself harm.
There are other situations where you are entitled to compensation if another party was more than 50% to blame. In Texas, the rule of proportionate responsibility applies to personal injury lawsuits. If you experienced catastrophic injuries and were partially at fault, your compensation would be reduced by that percentage. For example, if your award would have been $100,000 and you were found to be 10% to blame for the accident that caused your injuries, you would receive 90% or that award, or $90,000. Our McAllen personal injury attorneys can talk to you more about proportionate responsibility and how it may affect your catastrophic injury case.
What compensation is available in a catastrophic injury case?
Serious burns, spinal cord injuries, head trauma, and other catastrophic injuries will affect every part of a victim’s life. That’s why it is so important to recover compensation that addresses every expense and impact: financially, emotionally, and physically.
A catastrophic injury settlement or verdict may include compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Ongoing treatment and therapy
- Medical devices, supplies, and medication
- Modifications to your home to support your injury
- Lost income, including bonuses and benefits
- Loss of future earnings or potential earnings
- Emotional trauma, including pain and suffering
- Punitive damages, meant to punish the at-fault party
No amount of money can erase the pain and suffering you’ve experienced as a result of a catastrophic injury, but it can ease the burden you’re experiencing. It can help you work toward a more stable future.
When should I involve an attorney after experiencing a catastrophic injury?
When seriously injured, talking to an attorney may be the last thing on your mind. But you should know that your employer, the at-fault party, and/or the insurance company are already working to investigate your case and determine how they can avoid paying out a high settlement. They have teams of lawyers and investigators who will try to limit their liability, or legal responsibility, for what you’ve experienced.
It’s never too early to talk to an attorney about your rights and options. You deserve to have someone in your corner who can protect you, and that’s what our team at Arnold & Itkin does for the injured. We fight every single day to make sure people like you are given the support and care they need to move on with their lives.
