Dallas Catastrophic Injury Lawyers

Tough With Insurance Companies ∙ Compassionate with Clients

A catastrophic injury turns your world upside down. If your accident resulted from someone else’s negligence, you deserve fair compensation for your damages. A Dallas catastrophic injury lawyer can lead your fight for what you deserve from reluctant and often unresponsive insurance companies.

Accident victims are vulnerable to aggressive insurance adjusters who want to settle quickly. The urgency they demonstrate is to protect their best interests. It is not a generous offer designed to help you, but rather a low sum to save the company money.

How you proceed following a catastrophic injury caused by negligence can determine your future. A catastrophic injury is more than life-changing; it is a devastating and expensive event. A Dallas catastrophic injury lawyer can help you by applying their skills, knowledge, and experience to your civil case.

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 face a risk of death and prolonged or permanent damage. Impaired mobility and brain function, along with 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 catastrophic 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 Dallas catastrophic injury lawyer can help you.

A catastrophic injury can also occur in the following situations:

  • Slip and fall accident
  • Workplace accident
  • Medical mistake
  • Defective product.

The negligent actions of another person can result in considerable damages for accident victims and their families. In addition, a tragic accident’s physical, financial, and emotional toll impacts a victim’s overall quality of life.

Fighting for compensation is your right. However, the fight is more manageable with help from a licensed, professional attorney.

A catastrophic injury forever changes your life. Get help fighting for the compensation you deserve from a Dallas catastrophic injury attorney.

Dallas Catastrophic Injury Accident: Your Damages

The damages that result from a catastrophic injury accident are significant and stressful. A sudden and traumatic event can leave you unable to work and with painful injuries.

Medical care is costly. Regardless of whether you have health insurance, no one should pay for expenses that result from someone else’s negligence. The responsible party should face accountability and pay your damages.

A Dallas catastrophic injury accident lawyer can help you fight for your medical costs and more, such as:

  • Lost wages due to your recovery time
  • Potential wages, if you are unable to return to your job
  • Pain and suffering, such as nightmares, disfigurement, and mental anguish.

Compensation cannot return your life to the way 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. The pursuit of compensation for your accident damages is your right under Texas law. Crain Brogdon, LLP stands ready to help you fight for fair compensation.

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 Dallas catastrophic injury lawyer can help you along this crucial legal journey.

Catastrophic Injury Accidents: FAQs

It is not uncommon to have questions regarding the civil process. The following frequently asked questions serve as a starting point; you may ask additional questions during your free case consultation.

If the party responsible for your catastrophic injury faces criminal charges, you can still pursue a civil claim and lawsuit against them.

Most catastrophic injury cases settle outside of court. However, if a trial is necessary, your lawyer will inform you of what to expect.

Posting information about your case on social media is a bad idea. An insurance company may use a post about your accident against you and hurt your case.

The length of your case depends upon the specifics of your accident and whether your case goes to trial.

The death of a close loved one may qualify you for a wrongful death lawsuit. A Dallas wrongful death attorney can help you learn more about your legal options.

These are just a few questions accident victims ask when pursuing compensation. Our lawyers understand that not everyone comprehends Texas civil law.

Questions are something we always welcome. One of our goals for your case is to make you feel as comfortable as possible with your lawyer and the process.

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 Brogden, LLP understands court requirements and can ensure the statute of limitations for your case does not expire.
