FAQs About Catastrophic Injuries

Below are some frequently asked questions about Catastrophic Injuries:

What Injuries Are Catastrophic?

The phrase “catastrophic injury” is an umbrella term for severe, life-changing injuries. What sets them apart from “regular” personal injuries is that full recovery is longer, more complicated, and sometimes impossible. The victim may also require multiple surgeries, extensive rehabilitation, and live-in care.

A catastrophic injuries attorney from our team at McLaurin Law can examine your medical evidence and advise whether your injuries could qualify as catastrophic.

Potentially catastrophic injuries include:

  • Severe burns
  • Paralysis
  • Loss of limbs
  • Disfigurement
  • Organ damage
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Loss of sight or hearing
  • Traumatic brain injury

What’s The Difference Between Catastrophic And Personal Injury Claims?

Catastrophic injury claims result in greater pain, suffering, and expenses than “regular” or personal injury claims. Catastrophic injury claims, therefore, seek greater compensation and require more effort to prove and win, as insurers are less willing to make higher payouts.

Our Houston catastrophic injury lawyer can gather the necessary evidence and fight for your rights by negotiating with the insurance adjusters. If they refuse to settle or make an adequate offer, we are not afraid to go to trial.

Do Catastrophic Injury Claims Always Result In Higher Compensation?

Unfortunately, just because your injuries are more severe and costly doesn’t mean your claim will result in higher compensation.

If the party at fault is an individual, rather than a corporation, compensation will likely come from their insurance. However, if they have no or insufficient coverage, you may need to file a lawsuit against their assets. If they have no valuable assets, total compensation may be impossible.

A Houston catastrophic injury attorney from our team at McLaurin Law can explore all potential avenues for recovery to maximize your compensation.

Should I Hire A Houston Catastrophic Injury Lawyer?

A lawyer is not required, but a catastrophic injuries attorney can help your case. Seeking compensation for catastrophic injuries is more complicated than standard personal injury claims. Our Houston personal injury lawyer can support you at every step so that you can focus on your recovery.
