What is the Difference Between Personal Injuries and Catastrophic Injuries?

At the Hollingsworth Law Firm, our Houston personal injury attorneys know when our clients are hurt in an accident in Texas, the fallout may seem catastrophic on many levels. While they struggle with physical, emotional, and financial damages, their recovery may feel insurmountable.

We understand. When negligence impacts your life, your world is turned upside down.

In some cases, our clients suffer injuries that take weeks or months to reach maximum medical improvement. Others may never return to their original wellness. When this is true, your injuries may be considered catastrophic.

Our Houston catastrophic injury attorneys want to help you pursue the liable party for your full financial recovery, so you can begin rebuilding your quality of life.

What Types of Injuries are Considered Catastrophic Injuries?

The medical definition of a catastrophic injury is a severe injury to the spine, spinal cord, or spinal fractures, or to the skull or brain, according to the American Medical Association.

However, our Houston personal injury attorneys know that the law, and our clients, define catastrophic injuries as those that impact their livelihoods and overall quality of life. That may include amputations, paralysis, burns, scarring and disfigurement, and other permanent harm that changes their lives.

We can help ensure no detail is left to chance when pursuing the negligent party that caused your catastrophic injuries, so you can rebuild your life with confidence.
