Austin Catastrophic Injury Attorney
A catastrophic injury, also known as a serious injury, is one that renders an individual incapable of moving, speaking, interacting, or otherwise living as he or she did prior to the accident. When catastrophic injuries are the result of the wrongful actions of another, the victim may be entitled to compensation.
Serious injury victims who suffer because of negligence may be entitled to compensation for any expenses that they must deal with related to the accident. At our firm, our Austin catastrophic injury lawyers are here to help clients get the help that they need to put their life back on track once more.
Types of Cases We Handle
A fractured or broken bone is not only painful, but can be uncomfortable and stressful for the victim. Depending on which bone was located, the victim may need to have the area immobilized. In cases where the spine was targeted, it may result in life-long consequences.
Exposure to extreme heat, electricity and chemicals can result in severe burns. These are painful and may require that the patient receive surgical intervention, physical rehabilitation and even counseling to help deal with the emotional trauma sustained from scarring and disfigurement.
All too often, children are victimized by accidents from a product or toy that is either mislabeled, defective in nature or given without proper supervision. For example, some toys are cheaply made and have parts that can disconnect and become lodged in the child’s throat – posting a serious choking hazard.
Neck / Back Injury
The neck and back are fundamental to the normal functioning of the human body. If they are injured by a fall or blunt blow, it can mess up the alignment of the spine and cause damage to the tissues, ligaments and muscles that make up the area – causing pain, trouble with moving and the like.
Traumatic Brain Injury
Some of the most devastating of all injuries are those that target the brain. As one of the most vital organs, should it suffer damage, it can result in difficulty with all types of functioning – from communication to cognition and sensory processing. A traumatic brain injury can even leave a victim in a vegetative state.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Often dubbed as the “information highway,” the spinal cord allows for information from the brain to travel to all areas of the body. When vertebrae are fractured or otherwise suffer damage, it can result in difficulty with all levels of motor function; sometimes, it will result in partial or complete paralysis. A spinal cord injury can be life-changing.
