Catastrophic injuries are often the result of serious accidents and, all too often, these accidents are entirely preventable. When a person or party’s careless, reckless, negligent, or wrongful actions or inactions causes someone else’s catastrophic injuries and damages, the at-fault party can be held liable.
A catastrophic injury may be the result of negligence when it is caused by:
- A car accident
- A truck, motorcycle, bus, or similar vehicle accident
- A workplace accident
- Unsafe property conditions
- A defective product
- Defective or recalled auto parts, including tires
- A defective or dangerous roadway
- A maritime accident
This list is not exhaustive. In short, any time catastrophic injuries result from an accident caused by negligence, victims and/or their loved ones may be entitled to financial compensation. Additionally, if you or someone you love was catastrophically injured by a defective product, you may not need to prove that the manufacturer or other liable party was negligent under strict liability laws.
Serious injuries result in serious consequences. Victims and their loved ones face mounting medical bills, lost income and wages, lost future income, and immense pain and suffering. They may need to make modifications to their home or vehicles to accommodate the victim’s new disabilities, and they may even need to hire a full or part-time at-home caretaker to provide the necessary care and treatment.
At The Ammons Law Firm LLP, we believe you shouldn’t be responsible for shouldering these unexpected burdens on your own. Our Houston catastrophic injury lawyers can help you seek fair and full compensation from the at-fault party/parties. This compensation, while it cannot undo what you have been through, can ease the financial burdens associated with your injuries so that you can focus on healing and moving forward.
We have the resources, skill, and experience to handle these types of complex cases. With over a century of combined legal experience and a reputation for aggressive victim advocacy, our legal team is a formidable force you want in your corner.

What is a “catastrophic injury?”
There is no specific definition of a “catastrophic injury,” however, most medical professionals and attorneys agree that any injury that significantly alters the victim’s life is considered catastrophic. Serious, catastrophic injuries include things like spinal cord injuries and paralysis, traumatic brain injuries, amputation, severe burns, and loss of vision/hearing. Such injuries can affect everything from a person’s mobility to their ability to work to their expected lifespan.
What are lifetime care costs?
Many doctors and attorneys use the phrase “lifetime care costs” to refer to the total expected future costs associated with a victim’s catastrophic injuries. Unlike many others who suffer relatively minor injuries, catastrophic injury victims may never make a full recovery. They will likely require extensive, ongoing treatment and care for the remainder of their lives. Lifetime care costs can include things like physical rehabilitation, long-term in-home care, medical equipment, pain management programs, alterations to homes and vehicles, and more. The catastrophic injury lawyers at The Ammons Law Firm LLP take into account the full lifetime care costs of our clients and seek maximum compensation to cover all projected future expenses.
Can family members of catastrophic injury victims get compensation?
When a person suffers catastrophic injuries, they aren’t always the only one affected. Often, their family members and loved ones will also need to alter their lives in order to accommodate the victim’s new disabilities and needs. These costs—such as expenses associated with in-home medical care, handicap-accessible transportation, and alterations to homes—are often included in the lifetime care costs of the victim. However, when catastrophic injuries ultimately prove fatal, the surviving family members may be able to seek compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.
