Catastrophic/Severe Injury Attorney in Dallas, TX

The life of a victim of a catastrophic or severe injury has irrevocably changed. Not only will the victim never work again, but he or she generally needs extensive medical treatment, often for life. Permanent physical and/or mental impairment are just the most obvious factors for victims. These horrific injuries are often not the fault of the victim but result from issues over which they have no control.

Why Retain an Attorney

Pursuing catastrophic injury claims requires significant resources. A Dallas-Fort Worth catastrophic injury lawyer aggressively and thoroughly investigates all aspects of your case. That includes not only examining all relevant medical reports but hiring medical and psychological experts to examine the victim and review the case. These experts will then testify in court. Our aim is to get to the bottom of the situation and find out if negligence was involved.

We ensure all expenses and conditions related to the accident – not just medical or rehabilitation costs – are taken into account. These include lost income and pain and suffering. An attorney guides clients through the disability claim process as well as any other benefits for which the victim qualifies. Most cases are settled, but we will go to trial for our clients if necessary.
