Catastrophic Injury

Suffering any type of injury because someone else was acting in a negligent manner is always terrifying. Injuries can disrupt your schedule for weeks or months, and when someone suffers a catastrophic injury, their entire life could be turned upside down.

When someone causes an injury that disrupts your entire life, they can and should be held accountable. At Rodney Jones Law Group P.C., we are determined to help every client get the compensation they may be entitled to for the injuries they have suffered.

What Qualifies as a Catastrophic Injury?

A catastrophic injury is best defined as an injury that could result in multiple surgeries, long and extensive recovery, and long-term medical treatment. In general, injuries to the head, neck, or spine are often catastrophic injuries.

Injuries that result in serious burns, multiple broken bones, or damage to internal organs can also be considered catastrophic injuries. Since every case is different, any victim who has suffered a serious injury should contact a catastrophic injury lawyer at Rodney Jones Law Group P.C. for an evaluation of their case.

What are Common Causes of Catastrophic Injury?

There are several types of accidents which can result in a catastrophic injury. Some of these include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents — high-speed accidents, those involving a large truck, or head-on accidents can result in catastrophic injury.
  • Slip and fall accidents — head, back, and neck injuries are a common result of a slip and fall accident. When someone falls at a property due to the owner’s negligence, it can be life-altering.
  • Accidents involving burns — car accidents, workplace accidents, and defective products can often result in serious burns. Unfortunately, not only can these injuries cause disfigurement, but victims may also lose a limb or suffer a permanent disability because of burns.

These are only a few of the types of accidents which result in catastrophic injury. If you are a victim or a member of your family has suffered an injury that has left them unable to care for their basic needs, you should seek immediate guidance from a catastrophic injury lawyer.

Victims and their families seldom know their rights when someone has suffered an injury due to the negligence of another party. However, at Rodney Jones Law Group P.C., we take the time to listen to every client, and we will work tirelessly to ensure the responsible party is held financially accountable for the losses you and your family have suffered.

How a Catastrophic Injury Lawyer Can Help with Damages

Victims of catastrophic injuries often feel that they can file their own insurance claims and get the compensation they deserve. However, one of the many lessons we have learned is this is seldom the case. Hiring a catastrophic injury lawyer can help in some of the following ways:

  • Insurance company negotiations — insurers do not like to pay claims. Any claim an insurer pays impacts their bottom line negatively. At Rodney Jones Law Group, we understand the long-term care of a person suffering a catastrophic injury is going to be costly. We will work tirelessly to negotiate a fair settlement.
  • Investigating the accident — one of the most common tactics that will be used is to attempt to place some of the blame for the injury on the victim. A catastrophic injury lawyer can work with skilled investigators who have the skills to thoroughly investigate the cause of an accident.
  • Determining damages — the immediate medical bills after an accident can have a devastating impact on a family’s financial future. However, when someone suffers a catastrophic injury, the damages are compounded. A catastrophic injury lawyer can work with experts who can help determine the damages that will be necessary to provide care for the victim, as well as the immediate loss of wages.

Hiring a catastrophic injury lawyer in Houston, TX, is the best way to ensure that any settlement is right for the victim and their family. Additionally, if insurers fail to negotiate in good faith at Rodney Jones Law Group P.C., we will be prepared to take the case to court to secure damages.
