    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 was injured and my business closed down due to an accident in 2016. Daniel Sheppard became my greatest asset. He hired professional experts for their views and opinions as well as conducting numerous depositions. Daniel is hard working and no nonsense when handling your case. Daniel keeps you informed on what's going on and what to expect. I'm from Louisiana and my case was in Texas. Daniel Sheppard worked alone side my other attorney Yuri Beck, and the both of them did a fantastic job representing me and settling my case. Daniel Sheppard of Morrow & Sheppard in Texas and Yuri Beck of Hunter & Beck in Louisiana are my lawyers for LIFE.

      Nick Morrow and John Sheppard were the lead attorneys on my case to hold an apartment complex with inadequate security responsible for the death of my son. The two of them were focused and determined to represent me and my son's children with tenacity. As the case continued over time, it became apparent that we were not merely clients that were a means to a financial end to them but people who had experienced a life changing and devastating loss. They realized that as a result of our loss, there needed to be accountability that could only be obtained through legal actions. Throughout the legal process, Nick Morrow and John Sheppard were not only professional and transparent but also compassionate and empathetic as they lead us through the difficult and sometimes confusing legal maze. Every person in their office that was involved with our case exemplified an extension of the genuine concern that began with attorneys Morrow and Sheppard. I have and will continue to recommend this firm to individuals who find themselves in need of legal representation.

      The legal team at Morrow and Shepherd worked hard to help me win my case where a motorist who caused the accident changed her story and lied about the accident. A previous attorney kept telling me that I would probably have to pay some of the medical costs out of my own pocket.Daniel, my attorney, assured me that he would it is best to make sure this did not happen and that he would fight to get me the best compensation possible. He was true to his word.I'm happy with their work, happy with the compensation and would definitely use them again.The Legal Assistant, Chris, was always professional, friendly and polite and a pleasure to work with.A big thanks to the team!Don

      I was referred to Daniel Sheppard because of a car accident I had been in. I was very impressed with how he told me about the process of how things worked and the things to expect. He was very forth coming and always supportive. The experience was a positive one and ended on a great note! I highly recommend him.Elizabeth Varon

      Before I engaged John Sheppard, I was concerned that I might lose my case. However, John came onboard, turned things around, and set me on a good course to win. He got up to speed quickly on the facts and determined exactly what we needed to do. He is great at strategy, filing discovery and other motions, and arguing before the court. I was extremely pleased with the outcome of my case. If you need legal help in a personal injury action, commercial law or whatever, hire him immediately! He is a pleasure to work with, will thoroughly explain all to you in a manner you can understand, and will get you the best possible outcome. A+++
