How a catastrophic injury lawyer in Houston can help your case

When you’re living in the aftermath of a catastrophic injury, the last thing you want to focus on is fighting with people who don’t have your best interests at heart. But as tempting as it may be to accept a settlement, the needs associated with a permanent disability or premature death can run deeper than many victims and their families initially realize.

As former insurance defense attorneys, we have seen firsthand the tactics negligent parties and their insurers use to undermine legitimate claims. We can anticipate, mitigate, and fight those strategies using our decades of combined experience and knowledge of insurance company practices.

When you choose the Houston catastrophic injury lawyers at Grimes & Fertitta, you’re getting a focused, trial-proven team with a track record of success in cases involving serious injuries or death. We put our combined expertise to work to build an effective case and ensure the responsible parties are held financially accountable.

What counts as a catastrophic injury in Texas

According to section 42 USCS § 3796b of the U.S. Code, a catastrophic injury has “direct and proximate consequences” that “permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work.” While this can refer to a variety of life-altering injuries, injuries to the brain or spinal cord that drastically reduce executive function are the most common.

Because a serious or catastrophic injury ruins your ability to earn and provide for yourself and your family, you may be entitled to compensation from the group or individual responsible for your injury or the conditions that led to it.

Common types of catastrophic injuries

Serious or fatal injuries come in a variety of forms, most often affecting the vital functions we rely on to live and work independently. Typically, these injuries are complex both in their causes and in the effects they have on victims and their families.
