The Long-Term Effects Of Catastrophic Auto Accident Injuries

It can take time for the full extent of your injuries to become clear. Injuries to your head and back can lead to a wide range of permanent, life-altering disabilities, such as:

  • Cognitive, concentration and memory problems from a traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Paralysis, including paraplegia and quadriplegia
  • Chronic and severe head, neck or back pain
  • Mood swings
  • Extreme sensitivity to light

Such disabling conditions could make it impossible for you to work or care for your children anymore. The person, business or other party that caused your accident should be the one to make up for your lost wages, medical bills and other costs, not you and your family.

What Types Of Damages Can I Get Compensation For?

For people in Texas with serious injuries from a car wreck that was not their fault, there are three types of damages: economic damages, noneconomic damages and exemplary damages.

Economic damages include every expense or financial loss directly connected to the accident, such as:

  • Replacement wages for people unable to return to work. This includes the wages you have already lost, and those you expect to lose in the future.
  • The cost of surgery, your hospital stay, rehabilitation and follow-up doctor appointments.
  • Repair bills for your car, or the cost or replacing it.

Noneconomic damages are no less real, but are more personal and more challenging to turn into financial compensation. These include:

  • The pain and suffering you have endured since the accident.
  • Your reduced enjoyment of life due to physical, neurological or emotional disabilities.
  • Your spouse’s loss of consortium, which refers to your reduced ability to provide affection, companionship, sexual relations and other things you provided them before the accident.

Finally, in cases of extreme negligence or deliberate misconduct from the defendant, you might receive exemplary damages. Also known as punitive damages, this is intended to punish the defendant and deter them from doing it again. Judges and juries rarely award exemplary damages, and Texas law caps exemplary damage awards to $200,000 or twice the compensatory damages award up to $750,000, whichever is greater.

If you were injured in a collision with a commercial truck, the truck driver’s employer could be partly liable for your injuries. We will help you identify who is to blame for your accident and pursue compensation from all possible channels.

Have You Been Injured Due To Another’s Negligence?

If you’ve been injured in a car, truck or motorcycle accident that was the result of another’s negligence, let us help you receive the compensation you deserve. This will help you cover potential medical bill costs and/or potential loss of income due to an inability to perform your job duties. We want to ensure that you receive an experienced representation from our team.

What You Can Do After An Accident

These cases can be extremely complex due to a wide variety of factors – like insurance coverages (or lack thereof), and state laws regarding damages for specific injuries. To help you earn the outcome you deserve, follow these five steps after an accident:

  1. Ensure that you’re okay and that anyone with you is okay. Check on any other drivers involved in the wreck as well and see if they need anything before doing something about your car situation.
  2. If you notice any emergency, please contact 911 emergency services immediately.
  3. If there is no direct emergency after the accident, contact the local police department to report the accident. Make sure to gather the officer’s full name and division, as this information may be important for documentation purposes.
  4. Get the other driver’s contact information.
  5. Contact your insurance company. They may ask for a recorded statement about the accident, but you are not required to provide this straight away. You can consult with the Parra Law Firm, PLLC, to guide you on the next steps.

Every type of accident has its own unique challenges and consequences. We can help you fight for a settlement that accurately reflects the needs of your unique case.
