Catastrophic Injury Lawyers in Corpus Christi
Recovering Complete Compensation for Lifelong Care
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 the individual or company that was responsible for your injury. You will need legal representation to determine whether this is true.

What Makes an Injury “Catastrophic”?
The basic definition of a catastrophic injury is one that is life-altering and/or life-threatening. Such injuries can vary immensely from one situation to the next.
Some of the most common catastrophic injuries include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Severe head trauma
- 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.
What Causes Catastrophic Injuries?
Motor vehicle accidents are the most common cause of catastrophic injuries. 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.
Catastrophic injuries are also caused by:
- Construction accidents
- Trips and falls
- Acts of violence
- Sporting event accidents
- Diving accidents
- Flying objects
- Military situations
- Medical malpractice
- Defective and dangerous products
If you or a family member have been the victim of a catastrophic accident, determining 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 can get more information on fault, liability, and the worth of your claim. We have the resources and ability to track down the proper parties so that they can be held liable and so you can receive the compensation you deserve.
Types of Compensation in a Catastrophic Injury Claim
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 interests, you may not get the compensation you need, and if the injuries last throughout your life, you may not have the money required for medical care and living experiences.
