How Can a Wichita Falls Catastrophic Injury Attorney Help?

While victims are free to take legal action on their own to seek compensation, some victims choose to retain the services of our catastrophic injury lawyer in these cases.

After all you have had to endure, our attorneys at Loncar Lyon Jenkins want you to focus on your recovery. Some of the ways our firm could help you recover the compensation you deserve include:

Investigating Your Accident

Getting to the bottom of how your injuries occurred is an important first step in the personal injury process. Before you can negotiate a settlement or file a lawsuit, your lawyer must have a firm understanding of how your injury occurred. This investigation could involve reviewing police reports, speaking with witnesses, or reviewing medical records.

Negotiating a Settlement

Catastrophic injuries rarely result in jury trials. In most cases, they are resolved through a negotiated settlement long before a trial becomes necessary. Even though a settlement is not an uncommon outcome, there is no guarantee that you will receive a reasonable offer from the other side. Our firm can help you evaluate the offers you receive and push for a fair deal from the insurance company.

Presentar una demanda

When a settlement does not pan out right away, a lawsuit may become necessary. Filing a lawsuit is not a sign that the case will ultimately go to trial, however. In many cases, a resolution is reached during the course of a lawsuit. Our firm can handle every aspect of your case from start to finish.

Trying Your Case

Settlements can happen up until the trial commences. In the few cases where a trial becomes necessary, our firm will ensure you are fully prepared. While we develop a winning trial strategy, you can focus on your health and well-being.

Types Of Catastrophic Injuries

If your catastrophic injury was caused by another party’s wrongdoing—either through negligence, incompetence, or malice—you may be entitled to compensation for everything you have been subjected to.

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs)

Commonly known as TBIs, traumatic brain injuries come in different forms. The most common type of brain injury is a concussion, which results from an impact that shakes the brain hard enough to damage it. Brain injuries can have symptoms ranging from headaches to unexplained personality changes. Symptoms could take weeks or months to appear.

Quemaduras

Severe burns are traumatic in a number of ways. They can lead to scarring and disfigurement in addition to life-long nerve pain. The severity of burns are measured in degrees. While a first-degree burn is minor, a fourth-degree burn is often life-threatening.

Spinal Cord Injuries (Partial Or Total Paralysis)

The loss of motor control or sensation in parts of the body is known as paralysis. This condition usually results from trauma to the head, neck, or spine. Paralysis in the limbs can also occur when nerves are pinched or damaged.

Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries

Some of the most common causes of catastrophic injuries can include but are not limited to:

  • Construction accidents or other accidents in the workplace
  • Motor vehicle accidents, including motorcycles, cars, trucks, scooters, and more
  • Aircraft crashes
  • Accidentes de bicicleta
  • Accidentes de peatones
  • Defective products
  • Slip and fall cases
  • Negligent security
  • Negligencia médica

In some cases, it might be the property owner themselves who is held liable, as they might not have provided their duty of care, which involves giving you a reasonable expectation of safety. In other cases, an employer might be held accountable for failing to meet safety standards. In automobile accidents, the driver who was not following road rules may be held accountable.

Economic and Non-Economic Damages for Catastrophic Injuries

When someone else is responsible for causing your catastrophic injuries, you have the right to be made whole. This means you should be compensated for every way your life has been affected by your injuries.

Some of the more common types of economic and non-economic damages awarded to catastrophic injury victims include:

  • Diminished quality of life
  • Past and future medical care expenses
  • Lost wages and earning capacity
  • Dolor y sufrimiento
  • Emotional distress
  • Property damages
  • Pérdida del disfrute de la vida
  • Cicatrices y desfiguración
  • Incapacidad permanente

Your catastrophic injury attorney will carefully assess your damages to ensure you pursue every penny of compensation you deserve.

How Long do I Have to File a Lawsuit in Texas?

If you are considering a lawsuit related to a catastrophic injury, it is important to take into account the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is the rule that determines how much time you have to file your lawsuit. Typically, the statute expires two years from the date of your injury. If you file your lawsuit after that deadline expires, the consequences are significant.

Filing a lawsuit after the expiration of the statute of limitations will typically result in a dismissal with prejudice. In other words, you will be forever barred from filing your case again. This is true even when the evidence of negligence is overwhelming.
