How We Can Help

An insurance company will try various tactics to deny, delay, or underpay a claim. If they offer you a settlement, do not accept it without speaking with a lawyer first.

Acceptance of a settlement closes your case. It leaves you with no further options for additional compensation. This is particularly dangerous should your medical condition worsen.

Your personal injury claim and lawsuit are about what you need and deserve, not what an insurance company wants to pay. Your post-accident journey of medical procedures and financial stress demands accountability. Crain Brogdon, LLP can help you by:

  • Visiting the accident scene
  • Reviewing accident scene photographs
  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Reading police reports.

You can help your lawyer by providing as much information about the accident as you can as soon as possible. Your lawyer will also need medical reports relating to your injury and copies of your medical bills.

The process may appear overwhelming and confusing. However, a catastrophic injury lawyer can help you along this crucial legal journey. Call us today at (214) 522-9404.

What Is A Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury involves bodily harm affecting a victim’s quality of life. This severe injury typically results in massive medical costs and other damages. In addition, an inability to work makes your situation stressful and frustrating.

Accident victims who experience a catastrophic injury risk death and prolonged or permanent damage. Impaired mobility, brain function, and disfigurement are just a few examples of how such an injury can affect an accident victim.

Examples of catastrophic injuries include:

  • Burns: may require painful skin grafts and plastic surgery
  • Spinal cord damage: can result in permanent paralysis
  • Traumatic brain injury: disrupts normal brain function
  • Internal injuries: can involve organ damage
  • Bone fractures: may result in amputation.

Catastrophic injuries require extensive medical care that can last a victim’s lifetime. For example, the lifetime cost of a spinal cord injury can reach millions. Likewise, a skilled nursing facility for a traumatic brain injury can cost thousands monthly.

Ongoing medical treatment can cost more than you can afford. In addition, access to therapy, medications, and more is necessary for your health and recovery.

No accident victim should go without the services they need. While compensation is never promised and is impossible to predict, fighting for what you deserve is better than settling for less.

There is no fast recovery from a catastrophic injury. For some, such an injury is permanent. Do not give in to pressure from insurance adjusters to accept less than you deserve. Instead, schedule a free case consultation with a Dallas catastrophic injury law firm today.

Common Causes of Dallas Catastrophic Injury Accidents

A catastrophic injury is a devastating experience for accident victims. However, victims can fight for compensation when the accident results from someone else’s negligent actions.

One of the most common causes of Dallas catastrophic injury accidents is car accidents. The violent collision of a car with one of the following can cause a devastating injury:

  • Another car
  • A truck
  • A motorcycle
  • A bicycle
  • A pedestrian.

Motorcyclists, bicyclists, and pedestrians all face the possibility of catastrophic injury due to their lack of protection. The hard impact of striking the pavement or a sidewalk can result in multiple catastrophic injuries.

A dangerous driver high on drugs, distracted by a smartphone, or angrily speeding through a light can forever change your life. If this happens to you or your loved one, a catastrophic injury lawyer in Dallas can help you.

Economic Damages Following a Catastrophic Injury

Economic damages are those that are easy to calculate the monetary value of. They include things like:

  • Medical bills: These include ambulance rides, emergency room visits, diagnostic tests, X-rays, procedures, surgeries, amputations, intensive care unit stays, hospital stays and more.
  • Loss of wages: When an accident happens, sometimes you miss work, and sometimes you cannot return at all. The bills keep coming, even when the income does not. Your insurance claim should request reimbursement for the time at work that you have had to miss.
  • Loss of future wages: If you or your loved one is no longer able to retain your career or to pursue gainful employment due to catastrophic injuries, this is another monetary damage you should seek from the liable party.
  • Accommodations and alterations to your home: Sometimes it is necessary to make your home more easily maneuverable following a catastrophic injury. This could mean the addition of ramps, wider doorways, roll-in showers, handrails and grab bars.
  • Medical devices and equipment: These might include canes, crutches, wheelchairs, hospital beds, prosthetic limbs, and other necessary supplies.
  • Travel costs: The expense of traveling between doctor’s appointments and hospital visits, and therapy can become an expense that should be considered economic damage.

Non-Economic Damages Experienced Due to a Catastrophic Injury

Non-economic damages are tougher to accurately calculate since they do not have an exact monetary amount attached to them. There are a number of non-economic damages that your attorney may advise you to ask for. Some of them are listed here:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Loss of consortium
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Loss of society
  • Loss of reputation
  • Permanent impairments
  • Emotional anguish
  • Depression
  • Anxiety disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Your catastrophic injury attorney in Dallas can advise you of what you may be entitled to and then will put together a robust strategy that helps you to receive the best possible outcome.

Punitive Damages May Also Be Available

Punitive damages are sometimes awarded if a particular catastrophic injury occurred because of extreme misconduct or negligence by the liable party. In these cases, the court occasionally orders the defendant to pay punitive damages to the claimant. The punitive damages act as a way to punish the defendant and to discourage them from behaving badly again. It also stands as an example to those tempted to push the boundaries of acceptable behavior.

Compensation cannot return your life to how it was before the accident. It can, however, serve as a form of justice and ease your financial stress.

Dallas accident victims should never settle for less than they deserve. Pursuing compensation for your accident damages is your right under Texas law. Dallas accident victims should never settle for less than they deserve. Crain Brogdon, LLP stands ready to help you fight for fair compensation.

Statute Of Limitations

Texas’ statute of limitations allows two years for filing a civil lawsuit. The two-year time period applies to both personal injury and wrongful death cases. Witnesses may move or forget important details. Accident reports or photographs can become lost. Civil cases must occur within the required time limit for these and other reasons.

The statute of limitations clock begins to tick the moment you suffer a catastrophic injury or experience a loss. If you miss the deadline for filing your civil lawsuit, the court may not allow you to ever file it.

Take action immediately if your or your loved one’s catastrophic injuries are due to negligence. Crain Brogdon, LLP understands court requirements and can ensure the statute of limitations for your case does not expire.
