Catastrophic Injuries

Free Case Review

Catastrophic Injury Lawyers in Corpus Christi, Texas

Catastrophic injuries are those that result in life-changing damages, injuries, or illnesses. They usually occur when the victim has no warning at all, but they will suffer for many years or even the rest of their life. If you or a family member has been a victim of a catastrophic injury, you may have a case for legal action against someone who was responsible for your injury. You will need legal representation to determine whether or not this is true, though.

The Bandas Law Firm is experienced in handling catastrophic injury cases of all types. So, if you are a victim, contact us so that we can determine what type of action you will need to take.

What Determines a Catastrophic Injury?

They can vary immensely from one situation to the next. However, some of the most common catastrophic injuries include the following:

  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Severe Head Trauma
  • Amputation
  • Dismemberment
  • Eye Injuries
  • Foot Injuries
  • Bone Fractures
  • Severe Burns
  • Brain Injuries

Essentially, anything that changes the victim’s life for the foreseeable future would be considered a catastrophic injury, and if the accident occurred because someone else was negligent, then they could be held liable.

The most common reason why catastrophic injuries occur would be from motor vehicle accidents. These wrecks cause a variety of different injuries on a regular basis, and whoever was responsible for the collision would also be liable for the injuries.

Other common catastrophic injuries come from construction accidents, trips and falls, acts of violence, sporting event accidents, diving, flying objects, and military situations. Additionally, certain types of medical malpractice cases that cause amputation, brain trauma, and other injuries could be listed as catastrophic as well.

Finding Fault

If you are the victim of a catastrophic accident, or a family member has been, then locating fault will be important to pursuing a case. Sometimes, in these incidents, this is easy to ascertain, such as in vehicle accidents. At other times, the process can be much more difficult, meaning an experienced attorney will need to spend more time determining who is liable.

If you contact the Bandas Law Firm, you will be able to get the legal representation you require. We will be able to track down the proper parties so that they can be held liable and so that you can receive the compensation you deserve.

Types of Compensation

Depending on your case, you may be able to pursue financial assistance, not just for your medical conditions now, but for treatments in the future. Compensation could also cover lost wages now and in the future and pain and suffering. Because catastrophic injuries are long-lasting, this compensation should be enough to care for the victim for many years into the future. If you don’t have experienced attorneys protecting your best interest, then you may not get the compensation you need, and if the injuries last throughout your life, then you may not continue to have the money required for medical care and living experiences.

Should you or your loved one become injured because of a catastrophic accident, then you need to act quickly in order to seek a claim. That means contacting the Bandas Law Firm right away. While you may be dealing with the stress and emotional conflict of such an injury, you still need to keep your legal rights in mind.
