A serious or catastrophic injury is one that causes long-term disability, significant loss of a body function or system, loss of limb, multiple bone fractures, brain injury, or paralysis. Catastrophic injuries are life-changing and can be fatal. When someone negligently causes another person a serious injury, he or she may be responsible for paying damages.

Why Do You Need a Lawyer?
A catastrophic injury is too damaging to risk representing yourself during a personal injury claim. Going into insurance settlement negotiations without a lawyer puts you at high risk of the insurance company trying to take advantage of you. Hiring a lawyer, however, shows the insurer you will not let anyone ignore your rights.
A lawyer can fight for higher compensation on your behalf, using proven negotiation tactics. A lawyer can also take your case to court in Texas if that is necessary for the best possible results. Instead of dealing with a catastrophic injury and a civil claim, hire an attorney so you can focus on healing.
How Does a Catastrophic Injury Change a Claim?
The Texas civil courts treat catastrophic injury claims differently from typical cases. Catastrophic injuries impact future medical needs, capabilities, and quality of life. The victim and his/her family could be facing a lifetime of costs and losses. A jury during an injury trial will take the non-economic losses connected to a catastrophic injury into account when determining the final award amount. Serious injury claims are typically worth more in compensation than minor injuries.
A person or entity could be liable, or legally responsible, for another person’s catastrophic injury if he or she contributed to the accident. An act of negligence, recklessness, wanton disregard for the safety of others, breach of warranty, or intentional misconduct that causes a catastrophic injury could be grounds for a personal injury lawsuit.
The victim – or his/her attorney – must determine the identity of the liable party, however, before the filing of a claim. The victim’s lawyer must then prove to a judge or jury that the defendant owed the victim a duty of care, failed to meet this duty, and caused the victim’s serious injury. Proving liability may take a full investigation into the case.
