Houston Catastrophic Injuries Lawyers

Injuries can vary dramatically in terms of severity and repercussions, but some incidents clearly exceed others in their scope of impact on victims’ lives. Catastrophic injuries are typically defined as ones that will forever change the life of the victim as well as create a serious financial burden in the immediate aftermath of treatment and recovery.  Common sources of catastrophic injuries include 18-Wheeler wrecks, Big Rig wrecks, Oilfield injuries, Fracking and natural gas extraction injuries. Fortunately, however, an aggressive legal team can help you seek the full, generous compensation you need from the person or party at fault for this devastating event.

Types of Catastrophic Injury

Broken bones, cuts, and contusions can all have serious short-term repercussions for injury victims, but certain injuries are classified as “catastrophic” due to the lasting damages they can have on every aspect of a person’s life. The following are a few examples of injuries that can dramatically change the course of a victim’s life, as well as result in enormous physical pain, emotional trauma, and financial burdens:

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Blindness
  • Organ Injury due to Pharmaceuticals or Prescription Medication
  • Neck and Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Organ Damage
  • Severe Burns
  • Amputations

When these injuries are caused by the negligence of another party, they can be held accountable for their actions and may be obligated to cover the cost of resulting damages including loss of income, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
