What is the Impact of a Catastrophic Injury?
All catastrophic injuries have the potential to devastate one's financial, emotional, and physical state. In many cases, they result in permanent disabilities, affecting quality of life. Furthermore, victims aren't the only ones who get hurt. Family members also usually have to make sacrifices in order to care for their loved one. This can cause the victim to feel depressed and experience emotional distress due to feelings of powerlessness and shame, even though they are blameless.
Building a Strong Injury Claim

5 Questions and Answers about Catastrophic injuries
1. What is a catastrophic injury?
A catastrophic injury is a personal injury that's so severe it could be considered life-threatening without proper emergency medical treatment. Victims of catastrophic injuries often require extensive medical treatment, long recovery periods, and sometimes the victim is even left with permanent disabilities. Injuries resulting in crushed or amputated limbs, paralysis, blindness, organ damage, and traumatic brain injuries are just some injuries that can be considered catastrophic.
2. The catastrophic injury was partly my fault. Does this mean I don't have a case?
Not necessarily. Even when you're partly at fault for the catastrophic injury, another party might be just as equally to blame, or even more responsible for the injury than you are. And many times, victims tend to place at least part of the blame on themselves when they had nothing to do with it. Only a qualified personal injury attorney, such as us here at The Law Office of WT Johnson, can tell you whether or not you have a case that will stand up in court. Don't try to assign blame on your own, or determine whether or not you have a case. Let us do that for you – call us today!
3. It's taken me a long time to get back on my feet after my catastrophic injury. Is it too late?
The statute of limitations, or the amount of time you have to file, a catastrophic injury claim in Texas is typically two years. However, there can be some exceptions to this. For instance, if you were in a car accident and afterwards only felt a headache, you might not feel as though you need to file a claim. Over time you find that you're losing focus, your vision is blurry, and you have a near-constant migraine. More time passes and you're diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury, and it's found that the car accident you got into just over two years ago is to blame. In this case, you may still be able to file a catastrophic injury claim because the full extent of the injuries took longer to appear. If you've sustained a catastrophic injury and you want to hold liable parties responsible, contact the experienced personal injury lawyers at The Law Office of WT Johnson. We will fully review your case to determine whether or not you have a case, and if it still falls under the statute of limitations.
4. What happens if the victim of a catastrophic injury dies after filing a lawsuit?
It used to be that if a victim of a personal injury passed away after filing a lawsuit, the lawsuit was considered closed and no longer existed. However, thanks to the Texas Survival Statute, that's no longer the case. This statute states that should a victim of a catastrophic injury die after filing a claim, their heir or estate can still file, or continue on the motion, for the case. Also, the Texas Wrongful Death Act states that if a surviving spouse, parent, or child of a catastrophic injury wants to file a lawsuit against the responsible party, they may do so due to the suffering caused by the loved one's passing.
5. Should I contact an insurance company after my catastrophic injury?
Typically the insurance companies for both parties will start to investigate the case right away. You will need to cooperate with these companies, as failing to do so may harm your case. However, insurance companies have many tricks they use to prevent paying the parties out so it's not recommended that you ever speak to an insurance company on your own. Instead, hire us at The Law Office of WT Johnson and we'll communicate with the insurance companies for you. We're familiar with all the tactics they use, and we're immune to their reasoning and rationale for not giving victims what they're due.
