How are Catastrophic Injuries Different than Other Personal Injuries?
By definition, catastrophic means disastrous, ruinous, or tragic.
Aptly named, catastrophic injuries are those that our clients will not recover from quickly — or sometimes at all.
Catastrophic injuries usually leave victims with long-term or permanent disabilities that affect their ability to work now and in the future. The injuries impact not just day-to-day earnings, but their overall livelihood and the long-term financial health of their families.
What are the Most Common Causes of Catastrophic Injuries in Texas?
Last year, the Texas Department of Transportation reported 12,220 “incapacitating injury” crashes on our state’s roadways, leaving 14,975 people with catastrophic injuries.
That means, of the nearly 251,000 people who were injured in traffic collisions throughout Texas last year, almost 15,000 will likely not return to their previous quality of life after sustaining life-changing injuries.
While traffic collisions are common causes of catastrophic injuries, they are not the only accidents that can change their victims’ lives.
Some of the more common causes of catastrophic injuries in Texas include, but are not limited to:
- 18-Wheeler Accidents
- Uber/Rideshare Accidents
- Company Vehicle Accidents
- Commercial Vehicle Accidents
- Delivery Vehicle Accidents
- Auto Accidents

Frequently Asked Questions for Our Catastrophic Injury Attorneys in Austin, Texas
Who Can Be Held Liable for the Damages Caused by a Catastrophic Injury in Texas?
The person or party responsible for a catastrophic injury can be held accountable for the victim’s losses.
That may include but is not limited to negligent drivers, property owners, employers, business owners, medical staff/administrators/facilities, pharmaceutical companies, and/or product manufacturers.
It is important to discuss your situation with an experienced catastrophic injury attorney, so the responsible party or parties are held liable for your full financial recovery and closure.
What Are the Long-Term Effects of Catastrophic Injuries?
Catastrophic injuries are often permanent, and the overall effects will continue to be realized over the injured person’s lifetime, as their movements and activities may become increasingly limited by the damages.
All catastrophic injuries are unique and affect each person differently, but some of the long-term effects may include permanent loss of function or disability, the inability to gain meaningful employment, the need for around-the-clock care, accommodations, and lifelong assistance.
What Happens if My Loved One’s Catastrophic Injuries Become Fatal?
Under Texas law, if a victim dies as the result of a catastrophic injury, his or her heirs or estate representative may continue to pursue a personal injury claim that has already been filed.
If a lawsuit has not been filed against the liable party, depending on your relationship with the victim, you may have a claim for damages that were the result of your loved one’s wrongful death.
