What is catastrophic injury?

 

A catastrophic injury is a broad phase that includes a serious, harmful act to a person as a result of another's negligence. The attorneys at Foster & Houston are catastrophic injury lawyers. A few examples of catastrophic injuries include amputations, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, and quadriplegia.

 

It goes without saying that these injuries are life altering and such injuries require enormous resources, both monetary and emotional. Unfortunately, catastrophic injuries may be caused by another’s mistakes or recklessness. If negligence causes a catastrophic injury, the civil justice system is often the avenue for the injured to recover compensation, financial or otherwise, for their losses.


 
How do I know if I’m eligible for compensation?

 

The facts of your situation and the governing law will directly influence what compensation, if any, you are entitled to or eligible to seek. The lawyers at Foster & Houston focus on obtaining justice from wrongdoers, and offer free initial consultation. In most scenarios, compensation can be sought from those responsible for the losses related to your injuries.


 
When should I contact an attorney?

 

You should contact an attorney immediately regarding your rights. Each state has a time limit to file a claim, and these time limits are called statutes of limitations. Once a statute of limitations expires, the wrongdoer will have a complete defense to an injured person’s claims. If you are ready to speak to a lawyer, the Law Offices of Foster & Houston will consult you regarding your catastrophic injury and potential wrongful death case.


 
What types of cases are handled by Foster & Houston?

 

The attorneys at The Law Offices of Foster & Houston, PLLC, have extensive experience in representing individual’s cases where they have been harmed by dangerous drugs, medical devices, or toxic substances.

What if I’ve already signed a contract for another firm to represent my case?

 

If you have already signed a contract with another lawyer or law firm relating to the injuries before you contacted our firm then The Law Offices of Foster & Houston, PLLC will not be able to represent you. We would suggest that you contact your current law firm to discuss your legal matter.
