The term “catastrophic injury” can be used to describe an injury that prevents an accident victim from holding gainful employment and maintaining their prior standard of living. In other words, the injury is so severe that the victim is no longer able to work or provide for their family.

Catastrophic injuries can stem from a variety of incidents, including traffic collisions, defective consumer products, intentional acts of violence, construction site accidents, and even drowning events. Sadly, the survivors of these incidents often require lifelong medical treatments and rehabilitative services just to mitigate the painful side-effects associated with their injuries.

Catastrophic injuries include, but are not limited to:

  • Traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Burn injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Multiple bone fractures
  • Organ damage
  • Disfigurement
  • Severe neck injuries
  • Amputations

Texas courts are well-aware of the many physical, legal, and financial hardships associated with catastrophic injuries. For this reason, they tend to award plaintiffs significant damages that account for their respective medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, and more. That said, the court needs to consider a multitude of factors before deciding how to award damages. For example, the court may examine how an injury affects the plaintiff’s career, social opportunities, and physical capabilities.
