When You Have Suffered A Catastrophic Injury
The devastation of a catastrophic injury cannot be overstated. The complex nature of severe accidents makes it crucial to have an experienced legal team to help to resolve difficult cases successfully. Without knowledgeable personal injury counsel, you are unlikely to receive the compensation you deserve to cover your full damages.
At Humphrey Law PLLC, we represent people who have experienced catastrophic injuries. For more than a decade, we have helped clients hold negligent individuals and entities accountable for their actions by recovering fair and just compensation for medical bills and other damages.
What Types Of Cases Do We Take?
We handle personal injury cases involving severe, catastrophic, life-altering accidents. Some of these include:
- Serious falls and falls on construction sites
- Maritime and offshore injuries
- 18-wheeler crashes
- Other commercial vehicle crashes
- Drunk driving accidents
- Workplace injuries
- Fires and explosions
- Chemical and pipeline accidents
- Other industrial accidents
- Plane and helicopter crashes
- Medical malpractice
The insurance and legal processes for these types of accidents involve numerous complex parts. There may be multiple responsible parties and their insurers. Their interests may be aligned or in conflict. But remember, they are all professionals, they engage in these types of cases every day and none of them are working for you. This is why it is critical for you to work with an experienced attorney who has worked on serious cases at this level. You need an advocate working for you at every step of this process, protecting your interests.
Complex Notice Requirements
Personal injury cases often have short filing deadlines. Given the complexity of catastrophic injury cases, it is essential to work with an attorney as soon as possible. There may be a narrow window with the statute of limitations for the filing; if you miss this deadline, you are barred from filing any lawsuit on this matter, no matter how valid.
For some negligent parties, there may be notice requirements, often as short as a few months. You must notify the party of your intention to file or your opportunity is forever lost. Our attorneys understand all of these challenges and have the real-world experience of managing the complexity from filing deadlines to finding and working with the necessary medical, engineering, financial and other experts necessary to bring these cases to a successful conclusion.

Our trial background has taught us to prepare every case for litigation and, if necessary, appeal. We have achieved numerous favorable verdicts in state and federal courts throughout Texas.
