How are Catastrophic Injuries Different from Other Houston Accident Injuries?

At Charles J. Argento, our experienced personal injury attorneys in Houston focus on providing the legal representation our residents need to pursue the financial recovery they are entitled to after suffering injuries caused by negligence. 

These injuries can occur during car crashes, commercial truck collisions, medical malpractice, at work, on public, private, or government property, or when using defective products, and can disrupt our clients’ livelihoods without notice. 

Unfortunately, some of these injuries can be catastrophic, which by definition typically refers to injuries that disrupt the function of the body’s major organs or causes permanent disabilities. 

While our Texas personal injury lawyers provide aggressive and precise legal guidance for injuries of all types, we understand that when our residents suffer catastrophic injuries, they are going to require our experienced representation to outline each of their medical expenses — starting from the moment the injury occurred, and potentially for a lifetime — lost wages and diminished working capacity, and all additional costs that affect our clients’ day-to-day activities and present long-term challenges to both the injured and their family. 

What is Considered a Catastrophic Injury in Houston, Texas?

A catastrophic injury is often associated with permanent harm to any part of the body. 

Some of the most common types of catastrophic injuries may include, but are not limited to:

  • Amputations
  • Birth Injuries
  • Damage to Internal Organs
  • Loss of Senses, including Blindness or Deafness
  • Neck Injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Severe Burns
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Traumatic Orthopedic Injuries

If you have suffered a catastrophic injury, you must seek medical care immediately to obtain any life-saving measures necessary to assess your overall damages and learn how you can move forward with a customized treatment plan that allows you to focus on your future.

How Can Charles J. Argento Help Me Pursue Financial Recovery for My Catastrophic Injury?

If you have suffered a catastrophic injury, you and your family are probably already making changes to your home to help make your transition a little easier. 

We understand that this is just the beginning of the modifications you will have to make because of your injuries and that you have a long road to recovery ahead. 

At Charles J. Argento, our personal injury lawyers in Houston will outline the medical treatment you will need now, and going forward, as your care is going to be the priority. 

You may require multiple surgeries, medical devices, medication, physical therapy, and possibly even in-home, around the clock care to help manage your injuries — especially at the beginning of your recovery process. 

Extensive medical treatment for a catastrophic injury can be incredibly expensive and is often coupled with the financial stress of lost income and additional expenses that result from being unable to work.

You have suffered enough because of your personal injury. You do not deserve to be financially devastated by your accident too. 

If you or someone you know has been severely injured because of another person’s negligence, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your complete damages, which we will outline while leaving no detail to chance, so your current and projected costs are covered in our claim.
