Houston Catastrophic Injury Lawyers
Recover fair compensation for your claim
Some injuries suffered in an accident are quite serious. We refer to these as catastrophic injuries. The personal injury attorneys at Tracey Fox & Walters have a wide range of experience dealing with these types of cases and can help you recover the compensation you need.
Our lawyers understand the devastating impact that a catastrophic injury can have on victims and their families. Recovering compensation can be a complicated process. Insurance companies will fight these claims because they know there’s a lot of money at stake. We know how to build strong cases that get results.
The key to our success is our dedicated and detailed approach. We never take anything for granted when dealing with catastrophic injuries. We take the time to carefully investigate each case – whether it’s reviewing inspection reports or medical records. We also frequently consult with experts.
We present the facts to the at-fault party’s insurance company and demand the full compensation you deserve. Many insurance companies agree to negotiate a fair settlement offer with us. If not, we will not hesitate to file a lawsuit on your behalf to pursue the money you deserve.
What is a catastrophic injury?
One way to define it is an injury that affects your daily life. It affects your ability to go to work and take care of your family. The cost for treating the injury is usually quite high. For example:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can result in permanent brain damage.
- A spinal cord injury can severely limit mobility.
- Amputation may be needed, leaving someone without a limb.
- A person can be left with partial or complete paralysis.
All these injuries leave people unable to function as they had before. Serious injuries to the back, neck or shoulder can also be catastrophic. They can severely limit movement and your ability to perform simple tasks. A person who does manual labor for a living may no longer be able to work. Another example of a serious, catastrophic injury is severe burns that leave a person in pain and in need of long-term medical care.
Why do these accidents happen?
Catastrophic injuries happen for many different reasons, often due to the reckless or negligent behavior of other people. Some common causes of catastrophic injury include:
- Motor vehicle accidents such as head-on collisions and T-bone crashes.
- Construction accidents such as falls from heights and explosions.
- Workplace accidents such as slip and falls and machinery accidents.
Whatever the circumstances of your accident, make sure you get the medical care you need. Then talk to an attorney familiar with these cases who can help you understand the legal options available to you.
How much can I receive for my injury?
Each injury is different. As a result, the amount of money you receive will vary depending on many different factors, including the severity of your injury, the length of your recovery, your ability to work following the injury and whether any property was damaged.
Your attorney can help provide an accurate estimate for the total value of your injury claim. The final amount can cover a wide range – from several thousand to millions of dollars. Your lawyer can then present this information to the person or company responsible for compensating you for your injury. In most cases, this is the at-fault party’s insurance company.
Whatever the circumstances of your case, it’s critical that you take strong legal action right away. Otherwise, you could end up having to pay for your injury-related expenses yourself instead of receiving the compensation you may be entitled to for your injury.
