Conroe Catastrophic Injury Lawyer
Filing a Catastrophic Injury Claim in Texas
A catastrophic injury is any injury that has a significant and severe impact on the victim. In most cases, catastrophic injuries cause disability and other permanent effects that alter the victim’s ability to return to his or her ordinary, pre-injury life.
If you or someone you love sustained a life-altering injury due to another person or party’s negligent or wrongful conduct, we encourage you to give us at Scott Law Firm a call right away. You could be entitled to file a personal injury claim against the at-fault party, but you must put a powerful legal team on your side. Our firm has earned a reputation for providing aggressive client advocacy, and we have a proven record of success in even the most complex of injury claims.
Examples of Catastrophic Injuries
While any injury has the potential to be severely debilitating, some are more commonly catastrophic than others.
Examples of common catastrophic injuries include:
These and other catastrophic injuries often have a significant impact not only on victims but on their family members and loved ones, as well. Families may have to adjust to accommodate a loved one’s injury or resulting disability, from a single spouse now having to work full-time to support their family to a child having to hire live-in caregivers to support a parent with brain trauma to a parent needing to take considerable time off work to care for a catastrophically injured child.
How Do Catastrophic Injuries Occur?
A catastrophic injury can result from any type of traumatic accident or incident.
Some of the most common causes of catastrophic injuries include:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Defective products
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Slip and falls
- Oilfield accidents
- Boating and other recreational accidents
Scott Law Firm represents catastrophically injured victims and their families in all types of personal injury cases throughout Montgomery County and the entire state of Texas. We encourage you to reach out to us as soon as possible, as you only have two years from the date of the accident/injury (in most cases) to file your claim.
Special Considerations for Catastrophic Injury Cases
As previously mentioned, a catastrophic injury is one that has a serious impact on the victim’s life. A catastrophic injury might affect the victim’s ability to return to work—or work at all. It could lead to a series of new challenges, from learning how to navigate a new disability to accepting that life will never be the same.
As a result, catastrophic injury cases often have special considerations when it comes to recovering damages that other types of personal injury claims do not. For one thing, the cost of treating a catastrophic injury over the course of the victim’s lifetime could easily amount to hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars. Additionally, the physical pain and emotional distress associated with these types of injuries is often unimaginable, affecting nearly every aspect of the victim’s life and the lives of his or her loved ones.
At Scott Law Firm, we understand the unique situation you and your family are in. We also know that insurance companies are hesitant to pay out these high-value claims and will often go to great lengths to dispute your injuries, offer a low-ball settlement, or deny your claim outright.
