When you suffer an injury because of the negligence of another person, you want an experienced attorney to protect your rights, help you get the compensation you need, and get your life back together. And when your injury is catastrophic, it’s even more important to work with a proven lawyer, someone who understands the challenges and complications of getting you full and fair compensation for your losses.
Hello, my name is Kern Lewis I handle a wide range of personal injury claims at the law offices of Bailey & Galyen. For more than 30 years, we’ve helped people across Texas and throughout the country get the financial relief they need after a catastrophic loss.
Any serious injury will have an impact on your life, making it difficult or impossible to work, limiting your ability to do many of the simple tasks of daily life, or leaving you with a pile of unpaid medical bills. With many injuries, you can expect a full recovery and a return to the life you had before the accident. But with a catastrophic injury, it’s likely that you’ll have permanent impairment that will forever alter your life. If you suffer a traumatic brain injury or spinal cord trauma; If you have serious fractures, lose a limb, sustain burns on your body, or have permanent scarring or disfigurement, the short-term and long-term impact on your life can be devastating:
- You may not be able to work again
- You may have to give up activities that have brought enjoyment to your life, such as sports or hobbies
- Your injury can make it difficult or impossible to enjoy the companionship of others
- You need an attorney who understands catastrophic injury claims, who has successfully handled these types of claims before.
You’re entitled to compensation to cover all losses you experience, and a significant part of your recovery will be for your future needs. You want a lawyer who understands what those losses will be and who knows how to effectively communicate your future losses to a jury.
Catastrophic injury claims typically involve complex issues related to proof, often requiring the involvement of expert witnesses. You want an attorney who understands medical, financial and other specialized evidentiary issues, who has worked with experts to present compelling and effective evidence in similar claims.
Catastrophic injuries affect more than the injured person. An experienced lawyer will understand the impact on family members and other caregivers, and work to ensure that the compensation you receive helps lighten their load.
