There are several degrees of physical injuries. They go from mild, to moderate, to serious, to catastrophic.
Catastrophic injuries are those that permanently alter the way the victim lives their lives. Victims may be unable to work again at the same job, or at any job. They may require medical intervention for the rest of their lives. They may lose or distort critical functions, including cognition and personality. They may require personal assistance on a permanent, ongoing basis.

We File Catastrophic Injury Claims
Because of the severity of these conditions, victims need to add up every dollar they will need in the years to come. The lawyers at The Zimmerman Law Firm are skilled in this kind of detailed analysis and can help the people of Waco, Austin and Central Texas. We cannot undo the injuries that have disabled a person, but we can do our best to see that they have the financial security to get them through the rest of their life.
Most personal injury cases are resolved without filing a lawsuit, through negotiations. However, catastrophic injuries go to court more often — in part because of the significant amount of money involved, but also because jurors can be sympathetic to individuals whose lives have been destroyed because another party was careless or indifferent to their safety.
