Houston Catastrophic Injury Lawyers

Personal injury is the area of the law that focuses on injuries to the body, mind, or emotions. Personal injury law is based on a very simple idea:

People have a right to be safe and not physically or emotionally hurt by others, and those that are negligent and harm others are responsible for the damage caused.

If you or a loved one became seriously injured due to the negligence of another party in Texas, the law allows you to seek monetary damages. Protect your rights and contact a Houston catastrophic injury lawyer as soon as you are able.

Catastrophic injury cases we handle include:

The physical manifestations of these injuries run the gamut from brain damage, concussions, paralysis, broken bones, deep lacerations, facial disfigurement, amputations, and innumerable other types of injuries to the body.

Injuries to the mind and to the emotions include mental anguish, suffering, loss of companionship, severe depression, and a host of other harms to the way people feel. Injury to emotions and the mind can often be just as severe, or even more severe, than physical damage to the body.

Sources of Catastrophic Injury

Personal injuries can be caused by many different types of persons or things, including other people, companies, dangerous products, dangerous drugs, dangerous or malfunctioning equipment, and a host of other causes.

In a personal injury lawsuit, the injured person or a family member sues the party responsible for their injuries, and asks the Court to order that person to pay them money damages. The person responsible could be an individual. Or, it could be the company the injured person works for. Or, it could be the manufacturer of a dangerous product or drug. Although no amount of money can turn back the clock or reverse the damage that occurs when a person is injured or killed, the law generally requires responsible parties to pay an amount that fairly compensates those they have hurt.

Damages in Personal Injury Cases

The typical types of damages that can be recovered in a personal injury lawsuit include medical damages, lost earnings, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, and emotional distress. If the wrongful conduct that caused the injury was done intentionally or maliciously, the responsible party may be liable for punitive damages. Punitive damages are designed to punish the guilty parties, in part to ensure that they do not commit such conduct again.

Insurance companies are often involved in personal injury lawsuits. Frequently, the person responsible for harming someone else maintains insurance to protect them if they negligently harm someone else. The most common example of this is car insurance. All states require licensed drivers to have insurance in case they negligently cause a car accident.

If an accident occurs, the insurance company has a responsibility to pay the damages. Most companies also carry insurance policies, often worth millions of dollars. This is particularly true for companies that engage in risky business, such as the transport of hazardous materials. If a company truck is involved in an accident and harms people, the company’s insurance company has a responsibility to cover the damages.

I worked with Nick Morrow, John Sheppard, Daniel Sheppard, Patrick McGinnis, and Chris West on my maritime injury case. These guys were incredible. I... was injured badly working on a tugboat, and was forced to leave my career. These lawyers assured me I had a right to recover damages under the Jones Act, even when several other lawyers turned down my case. Morrow & Sheppard went above and beyond. They took on costs like hiring expensive experts and taking depositions so that I could be in the best position to prove my case. I watched them handle every excuse the defense lawyers threw at me, and ultimately forced the defendant’s hand in to paying me what I deserved. Morrow & Sheppard always kept me informed and up to date on my case, and developed a personal relationship with me. I would give them the highest recommendation. I still keep in touch with them, and look forward to seeing them whenever I pass through Houston.read more

Nick Morrow and John Sheppard are the best. I was paralyzed in a work injury. Several other lawyers turned down my case. Morrow & Sheppard hired... expensive experts, took dozens of depositions, and proved my case. I saw them in court against a team of defense lawyers, and the defense lawyers didn’t stand a chance. Morrow & Sheppard took my case all the way when nobody else would. Now my family is set up for life. Throughout the process, they kept me updated and made me feel like I was more than a number. I still talk to Nick to this day. Morrow & Sheppard exceeded my expectations in every way, and I cannot recommend them enough. If you are injured at work, call Morrow & Sheppard.read more

They are both winners. If you need a Houston lawyer who will stand up for your rights and get you the justice you deserve, I wholeheartedly recommend Morrow & Sheppard. read more

My experience with John, at Morrow and Sheppard, during my company’s litigation was better than I could have imagined (considering the circumstances... of being involved in litigation). What stood out to me the most, was John’s tenacity in preparation. I later realized this came from two places, one he didn’t want to lose and two (and most importantly) he CARED so much about me getting justice. I cannot stress this enough, when you are dealing with a lawyer that truly cares, then all of the other stresses I had around the case seemed to go away. I was always kept up to date with what was going on in our case, and he always made it very clear he was just an email or call away! In addition to these attributes, he also knows the law and is willing to fight for what is right! It would be tough to find another lawyer that is as highly effective, skilled, knowledgeable, ethical and has such an impeccable reputation (which is well deserved). I would recommend Morrow and Sheppard to anyone seeking out a law firm, in the event they needed counsel.read more
