Although there is no specific definition for what constitutes a catastrophic injury, in general, it is defined as injuries that are severe enough that they either lead to permanent or long-term conditions that may or may not cause disability or disfigurement. For example, in McAllen, if you lose one or more limbs or are severely burned, you will face a long recovery process and many years of medical treatment. This may also prevent you from going back to work in your previous job which can leave a victim and their family in dire shape.
Catastrophic Injury Cases are Much More Complicated
Attorneys who take on catastrophic injury cases understand the unique challenges that come with trying to assist victims. Because the stakes are higher, there is more pressure to perform and earn settlements that can run into millions of dollars. An attorney must tap into several sources above and beyond those in a firm, making strategic use of accident reconstruction witnesses, medical experts, and others who can provide important testimony to not only prove a case but also to set the stage for an appropriate amount of damages to be awarded. These types of cases can take a long time to settle, one of the key qualities an attorney must have is stamina and focus to go the required distance.
