Houston Personal Injury Lawyer
Advocating for the Seriously Injured
When an accident is so severe that it causes lasting or lifelong injuries, a victim may be dealing with hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical bills, lost earnings, and other financial losses. On top of that, a victim may experience considerable psychological trauma, leading to feelings of self-doubt, introversion, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder. These catastrophic injuries require serious and aggressive legal representation if a victim is to have the best opportunity at seeking a fair settlement or award.

What Is a “Catastrophic” Injury?
Although there is no universal legal or medical definition that specifically categorizes what physical trauma may be classified as “catastrophic” injury, the American Medical Association and the National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research offer two helpful descriptions. The AMA considers a catastrophic injury to be a severe injury to the spine, spinal cord, brain, or skull. The National Center for Catastrophic Sport Injury Research classifies injuries as catastrophic if they result in death, permanent severe functional disability or severe head or neck trauma.
The following may be considered catastrophic injuries:
- Spinal cord injury, including spinal fractures
- Paralysis, including paraplegia or quadriplegia
- Serious head trauma, including concussions and skull fractures
- Brain injuries caused by blunt force trauma or a lack of oxygen or blood to the brain
- Amputation or loss of limb
- Multiple bone fractures
- Eye injuries
- Severe burns
Any of the above injuries may cause permanent physical and emotional damage. If you or a someone you love has suffered a catastrophic injury due to a car accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident, or other preventable incident, please call Omar Saman, P.C. in Houston, TX.
