Catastrophic Injuries Attorneys Texas
Texas Top-Rated Catastrophic Injuries Attorneys
From a medical point of view, catastrophic injuries are the most debilitating personal injuries that somebody may suffer. They can leave you or your loved ones permanently disabled and facing a lifetime of rehabilitation. From a legal point of view, catastrophic injuries are different from other personal injuries too.
Any act of carelessness or neglect can result in a catastrophic injury. When this happens, a top personal injury attorney can help you file a lawsuit to receive compensation from the individual or entity responsible.
The team of personal injury attorneys at Manuel Diaz Law Firm has extensive experience in catastrophic injuries. They are renowned catastrophic injuries attorneys that can help you navigate the ins and outs of a catastrophic injury claim in Texas so that you can focus on recovering and/or being by the side of your loved one and receive the legal compensation you deserve.
When a personal injury case involves catastrophic injuries, victims require more compensation to cover the higher damages suffered. Those higher damages will, in turn, require more effort to win since insurance companies are less willing to pay higher amounts for ongoing expenses and suffering.
If you or a loved one have recently suffered from catastrophic injuries, call us or send us an email today, tell us briefly about your case, and let’s discuss it at large in a free initial consultation.
Are My Injuries Considered Catastrophic?
What sets catastrophic injuries apart from other personal injuries is their seriousness. They are very difficult to recover from and many a time a full recovery is not possible.
Per 42 USC § 3796b, the legal definition of a catastrophic injury is an injury with “direct and proximate consequences” that “permanently prevent an individual from performing any gainful work.” Catastrophic injuries are generally so serious that the victim is left with permanent damage; they tend to be the result of physical harm to the spinal cord or brain, which can have severe short and long-term impacts on a person’s functional capacities.
Generally, a catastrophic injury implies that the victim suffers long-term or permanent incapacity or disability. These injuries tend to require potential medical treatment for life, surgeries, and a very tough recovery process, thus affecting the possibility of the victim going back to work and earn money. This can be especially tough if the victim is the breadwinner for the family: catastrophic injuries can affect a whole family. In other cases, these serious injuries leave victims unable to function as before, and they need the assistance of a live-in nurse or something similar to cope with everyday-life tasks.

Personal Injury FAQ
- Report the accident so a police officer can make an official report and investigation.
- Take the other person’s information. This includes name, address, insurance policy information, vehicle information and phone number.
- Take pictures of the accident scene and injuries (if possible). This is important to help establish responsibility of the accident and injuries.
- Never sign any documents you don’t understand. Remember insurance policies are not on your side and they will try to settle your case with the least amount possible. If they ask you to sign any documents accepting any offer, this will waive your right of getting your medical bills paid and the compensation you deserve.

The Shared Fault Rule in Texas is a comparative negligence rule that determines proportionate responsibility. In short, each party may be responsible “in part” for the accident and subsequent damages and injuries. As such, liability for damages can be designated that are proportionate to the level of fault a party is responsible for.
This rule allows you to potentially collect compensation even if you were partially at fault for the accident. However, Texas adheres to a 51% bar rule, meaning that you are ineligible to collect damages for those injuries which you were 51% or more responsible for.
Our law firm knows what is needed to prove fault and get you maximum compensation. We gather the evidence needed to position your case and argument in the best possible light, ensuring the truth is presented in court.
