Committed Catastrophic Injury Attorney Serving Texarkana Victims & Their Families
In the legal sense, a catastrophic injury is defined as an injury so severe that it prevents the injured person from ever returning to the job they held when the injury occurred. Even if you or your injured loved one can perform some other job, you may be entitled to compensation.
Types of Catastrophic Injuries
Though your specific circumstance may differ, there are a few types of injuries that are almost always considered catastrophic. They include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Loss of limbs or damage necessitating amputation
- Severe burns
- Loss of sight or hearing
- Brain injury or mental impairment
- Injuries occurring because of electrocution or an explosion
- Catastrophic illness, such as cancer, coma, heart attack or stroke
This is certainly not an exhaustive list, and if your injury does not appear here that does not mean you can’t qualify for a catastrophic injury claim.
Catastrophic Injury Compensation
If your injury or that of an immediate family member means that your family will face lifelong hardships, you deserve to be compensated for your decreased quality of life. Hardships can include loss of wages, astronomical costs of medical care, or pain and suffering due to trauma. It’s simply not right for a person and their family to suffer for years to come because of unsafe working conditions or recklessness on the part of someone else. Let us help your family build a new normal through ensuring you receive the financial support you deserve.
