What is a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury is one that leaves a person with a long-term or permanent disability that would keep them from participating in work and/or day-to-day activities. Such an injury may result in impairment to extremities, skin, or internal organs. Specifically, the results of a catastrophic injury can include any or multiple of the following:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Burns
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Paralysis
  • Amputation
  • Loss of sight
  • Loss of hearing

Potential Sources of Catastrophic Injuries

While accidents happen every day, they tend to be exacerbated when they are caused by someone’s else actions. Even when people take precaution and exercise good judgment, another person’s negligent or reckless behavior can cause catastrophic and sometimes irreversible damage. Although there are many ways that such accidents occur, some of the most common include:

  • Unsafe premises
  • Falling accidents
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Intentional acts of violence
  • Accidents related to sports and/or recreational activities

If a person is involved in any of these types of accidents, an Allen catastrophic injury lawyer could evaluate their case to see how the law may be applied so that the injured party can receive a favorable outcome in an ensuing civil case.

Catastrophic Injury Law

In Texas, a catastrophic injury lawsuit falls under the jurisdiction of personal injury law. When a person suffers such an injury because of someone else’s negligence, they generally have two years to file a lawsuit against the offending party, or—with very few exceptions—they would be barred from recovering any compensation whatsoever for that particular injury. This is called the statute of limitations. There are some cases against certain parties that must be brought even sooner than two years, so do not delay.

In addition, Texas is a modified comparative negligence state. Under this law, if a person had any fault in their own injury, they can still file a lawsuit. However, if they are awarded damages, their final damage award would be reduced by their own percentage of fault. For instance, if a person is awarded $300,000 in damages, but is found to be 30 percent at fault, their final award would be limited to $210,000 plus prejudgment interest and recovery of court costs. The same law prevents any recovery whatsoever if the injured person is found to be more than 50 percent at fault for their own injury.

I seeked the McCraw law group after a bad experience. As lawyers would do they lied to get the case. After my car was... totaled with my kids car sat in the pound for a month and a half until I took matters into my own hands. I also was told by Vanessa she had too much work to focus on my case. After we waited to move on the adjusters beat I took matters in my own hands. I was told a certain amount by her supervisor but received less but they received the 10k as in the contact plus’s 300.Also in the process we lost our pip after the settlement was received and they declined to commit to pursue my out of state insurance. I would say run !!!!!! Don’t think twice! They’re horrible! I was asked to handle the hospital bills with care! They’re very nice! You need lawyers to handle your case like you wouldn’t. In my case I handled them. I didn’t receive my complete compensation after my children and I suffered so much hardship and pain. They didn’t care. Horrible beside manors but was extremely nice to the adjusters. RUN!!!!read more

I was in an accident in March and had injuries resulting from the crash. Obviously my first call was to a doctor to get... checked out but was told I was going to need physical therapy. My second call was to the McCraw Law Group. They took care of all of the grunt work so that all I had to focus on was getting better. They were very communicative about the process, and better yet, they were incredibly responsive to any emails, calls, and questions. I was very appreciative and thankful for all of their hard work. They are a great group of people to work with when you’re needing the more
