Conroe Catastrophic Injury Lawyers Pursue Maximum Compensation
Accomplished Texas trial attorneys tackle complex cases of severe and permanent harm
A catastrophic injury can change your life in the blink of an eye. One moment you’re perfectly healthy, enjoying life to the fullest, and the next you’re under intense pain and may be permanently disabled. Catastrophic injuries can come as the result of automobile, truck or motorcycle accidents, construction mishaps, medical malpractice, slip and fall accidents and other incidents caused by negligence.
At Hope & Causey, P.C. in Conroe, Texas, we have represented many clients whose injuries have permanently altered their lives. We draw on decades of experience to thoroughly investigate the incident, identify the causes and hold the responsible parties accountable. We understand that our severely injured clients depend heavily on obtaining fair and adequate compensation, so we aggressively pursue the maximum recovery possible under the facts of the case.
Types of catastrophic injuries
The most complex and critical personal injury cases are those that involve permanent, debilitating and disabling injuries, such as the following:
- Amputation injuries and loss of limb
- Back, neck and spinal cord injuries
- Compound bone fractures and crush injuries
- Disfigurement and scarring
- Head injuries, concussions and traumatic brain injuries
- Loss of hearing and blindness
- Severe burns, explosion injuries and electrical shock injuries
All of these injuries involve an impairment that greatly alters the victim’s ability to carry on life activities. Often, these injuries rob the victim of autonomy, independence, career and quality of life. The most severe injuries can be fatal, in which case the family of the victim may be entitled to recover damages for wrongful death.
How we handle catastrophic injury cases differently
Our personal injury attorneys provide comprehensive and compassionate legal services for every case we undertake. However, there is a difference between an injury case where the victim is expected to eventually recover and one in which the injuries are permanent. In the latter case, we must contemplate future costs due to the injury, which include:
- Ongoing medical care
- Ongoing personal care
- Modifications to a home and/or vehicle to accommodate a disability
- Rehabilitation and therapy
- Lost earnings over the course of a lifetime
Before we can make a demand for sufficient compensation, we must offer proof of the extent of the injuries and of the prognosis for the victim’s future health condition. To gather this evidence, we work with independent medical, rehabilitative and life-care specialists as well as financial experts who can estimate future losses. These consultations also help us quantify noneconomic losses, which include:
- Physical pain
- Mental suffering
- Loss of quality of life
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of consortium
This level of investigation and case preparation takes time and money. However, we accept catastrophic injury cases on a contingency basis. Our firm finances the litigation, so you don’t pay anything to cover our expenses until you agree to a settlement or win a jury award.
