Catastrophic Injuries Attorney in Texas

El Paso Lawyer for Severe Injuries

In many personal injury cases, the injury is temporary or can be overcome. However, a catastrophic injury can alter the course of a person's life forever, as well as the lives of their family members. When a person has suffered a catastrophic injury, they are not likely to ever return to their business as usual. People with this type of injury often require extensive, lifelong care. It is a sad fact that many injuries of this nature are preventable. Often, when an accident leads to a catastrophic injury, there is a careless person who was responsible. By filing a personal injury lawsuit, an injury victim may be able to hold the negligent actor liable and secure financial compensation.

The Cal Mundell Law Firm, PLLC takes cases involving catastrophic injuries very seriously. We understand the impact a major injury can have on not only the life of the person injured, but the community around them. If you have suffered a catastrophic injury due to an accident that was another person's fault, you may be able to recover substantial compensation that can cover the costs associated with the injury. Our goal is to ensure that you will not be the one to face the financial consequences of an accident you did not cause.

Defining a Catastrophic Injury

A catastrophic injury is one that a person will never fully recover from and that will permanently interfere with their ability to function in daily life. People with catastrophic injuries may be unable to ever return to their careers or even to fulfill some household responsibilities. Examples of injuries that may be considered catastrophic include:

  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord or neck injury resulting in paralysis
  • Loss of limb
  • Injuries that lead to blindness
  • Severe and extensive burns

Other injuries may be considered catastrophic if they will affect a person's abilities, the work they perform, and their daily activities for the rest of their life.

Types of Personal Injury Cases Involving Catastrophic Injury

Motor vehicle accidents are one of the more common culprits in catastrophic injury cases. The forces involved in a car crash can lead to severe harm for those involved. These accidents tend to happen without warning. One moment, a person is driving along, and the next, they have suffered harm that cannot be undone.

Types of personal injury cases commonly involving catastrophic injury that Cal takes on include:

  • Car accidents - Drunk driving accidents are particularly likely to result in severe or fatal injuries.
  • Truck accidents - Crashes involving big rigs can be incredibly dangerous for occupants of smaller vehicles.
  • Premises liability accidents - Business owners and anyone who invites others onto their premises have a duty to keep the premises reasonably safe for others. Slip-and-fall accidents can be extremely serious, particularly if the person who falls is elderly or otherwise physically vulnerable. Crimes by third parties that should have been prevented by a business's proprietor, such as muggings, can also be incredibly dangerous to the victim.

If you have suffered a catastrophic injury due to the negligent conduct of another party, Cal may be able to recover substantial compensation for you.

Damages Available in Catastrophic Injury Cases

The goal of compensation is to leave you in something as close as possible to the position you would have been in had the accident never occurred. You may be entitled to compensation for:

  • Medical bills
  • Long-term care costs, including the costs of future care
  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages, including the income you will lose in the future due to being unable to return to work
  • Loss of enjoyment in life
  • Emotional trauma

If you are not the one who caused the accident, you should not be the one to suffer financially as a result. Filing a personal injury lawsuit can protect your financial security in the wake of a life-changing accident.
