Catastrophic Injury Accidents
Catastrophic injuries are those injuries that typically permanently prevent someone from performing any gainful work. These injuries can be devastating because they can leave you with a permanent disability and/or pain and suffering for the rest of your life. Catastrophic injuries and illnesses can occur suddenly and can either be caused by accident or by the negligent or intentional actions of another. Oftentimes, a catastrophic injury can wreak havoc on the central nervous system as may occur when someone sustains severe burns or a spinal cord injury. Some examples of other catastrophic injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injuries;
- Multiple fractures;
- Neck and back injuries;
- Accidental amputations;
- Severe eye injuries such as those that cause blindness or the loss of an eye;
- Foot and hand injuries;
- Shoulder injuries;
- Neurological disorders; and,
- Organ damage.
If you or a loved one sustained one of these injuries or any other catastrophic injury, it is imperative that you consult with an experienced Texas Personal Injury Lawyer, particularly if the injuries are due to the negligent or intentional actions of another. When you’re facing mounting medical expenses, and you’re wondering how you might continue to support your family, hiring a knowledgeable and dedicated attorney to handle your personal injury claim can really make a difference when it comes to successfully settling or litigating your claim. But consider that under Texas law, you have only two years from the date of your accident or injury to file a lawsuit against those responsible. While this may seem like more than enough time to decide whether to file a claim, since catastrophic injury cases can be quite complex and oftentimes involve a number of different defendants, you should consult with an experienced Texas Personal Injury Lawyer as soon as possible after your accident to ensure that your legal rights are preserved. When you hire an attorney at the law firm of Hermes E. Flores, you can expect dedicated and determined representation by someone who will help you obtain the compensation you need and deserve, whether it covers medical expenses, lost wages, or pain and suffering.
