Potential catastrophic injury damages include:
Your Necessary Medical Care
Medical treatment for a catastrophic injury can be expensive, invasive, and ongoing. We can recover the value of your current medical bills and also work with your doctors to understand your future medical needs.
We can seek financial recovery for emergency transportation services, doctors’ and hospital bills, medications, medical equipment and devices, rehabilitation, therapy, and long-term nursing services.
Your injury may prevent you from returning to your previous line of work. You may have to leave the workforce entirely. We can recover your lost tips, wages, bonuses, and benefits.
Pain and Suffering
By definition, catastrophic injuries alter your life–and you deserve financial recovery for those changes. Pain and suffering reflects the hardships your injuries caused.
Other Non-Economic Damages
Non-economic damages reflect your physical, emotional, and mental suffering. You may recover awards for depression, anxiety, stress, chronic pain, physical disabilities, and loss of enjoyment of life.

You may have other injury-related losses, including:
- Vehicle repair or replacement costs
- Medical travel expenses
- Assistance with household services (such as cooking, laundry, lawn care, etc.)
- Home and vehicle modifications

Surviving family members may also recover awards for their mental pain and suffering.
Our Lawyers Are Ready to Manage Everything Your Case Requires
We’re ready to pursue the funds you need by:
Identifying the At-Fault and Liable Parties
To secure a successful settlement or verdict, our attorneys must show that your injury resulted from another party’s negligence. Depending on the type of accident that caused your injury, liable parties may include:
- A passenger or commercial vehicle driver
- A business or residential property owner
- A doctor, nurse, or medical facility
- A product manufacturer
- A government entity
- An employer
Gathering Evidence to Support Your Case
Our team of lawyers, investigators, and paralegals will gather evidence to establish negligence. As with liability, evidence will vary based on the type of accident that caused your injury. Examples of supporting information may include:
- Photographs of your injuries
- Photographs of your damaged vehicle or personal property
- Medical records
- Eyewitness statements
- Surveillance footage
- Police reports
- Data from the scene of your accident
- Testimony from health care professionals, accident reconstruction specialists, and other relevant experts
Once we build your case, we can move forward with an insurance claim or lawsuit. According to Texas law, you generally have two years to file a personal injury or wrongful death action. The clock starts when your injury occurred or at the time of your loved one’s passing.
Protecting You from Bad Faith Insurance Practices
Not all insurance companies negotiate in good faith. Some representatives see valid claims and think: “How can we pay as little money as possible?”
We protect you from insurance companies that don’t have your best interests at heart. We’ll stand between you and any insurer that:
- Offers less than you’re owed
- Blames you for the accident and your injuries
- Doesn’t respond to your messages
- Pressures you into accepting a lowball offer
- Delays the claims process
Since 2002, we’ve protected our clients from bad faith insurance practices. Now, we’re ready to protect you.
Catastrophic Injuries Suddenly and Significantly Alter Your Life
The American Medical Association (AMA) defines a catastrophic injury as an injury to the skull, spine, spinal cord, or neck. However, the legal definition of a catastrophic injury is broader and considers not just the injury but its impact on a victim’s life.
Examples of catastrophic injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs)
- Amputation or permanent impairment of a limb
- Loss of speech, hearing, or vision
- Loss of mobility or paralysis
- Back, neck, and spinal injuries
- Severe burns
- Facial injuries
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Organ damage
- Loss of sexual function
If you suffered a life-altering injury because of another party’s actions, we’re ready to advocate for you.
