Do I really need a catastrophic injury lawyer to handle my case?

We get this question at our offices on a daily basis, “Do I really need a catastrophic injury lawyer to handle my case?” The short answer is “Yes, you really do.” The longer answer is a bit more complex.


The number one reason why you need a catastrophic injury lawyer to handle your case is because your catastrophic injury is devastating and will be for years to come. You do not want someone who is inexperienced with this type of law because you only get “one shot” to get justice and to receive an appropriate settlement. If you choose to work with a lawyer who is not well versed in catastrophic law, you may walk away with a pittance compared to what you deserve, but you will not get a second chance. You will have to live with your injuries for the rest of your life (or for a significant period of time) and will have no other recourse for additional monetary compensation.


A catastrophic injury lawyer understands the level of care needed in these types of cases and scenarios. They also understand how to look at every possible need in the short-term and long-term as well as factoring in possible future complications that may require treatment. When choosing to go with a lawyer who is not well versed in this type of significant injury, the level of compensation is often far below the necessary care for the injured person’s lifetime. It is important to remember that you need to be compensated not just for your short-term injury needs, but also for your long-term care.


Catastrophic injuries are injuries or illnesses that have severe implications and in most cases, long-lasting, implications for the injured individual. This means that there is significant damage to the person’s life including their quality of life. Most often these types of catastrophic injuries show up via head injuries and brain stem injuries, body amputations or body paralysis, brain defects such as memory problems, and spinal cord injuries.

A well-informed Corpus Christi personal injury lawyer needs to understand the principles of personal injury law if they’re going to represent you effectively. Knowing what to expect during your case can help you be sure you’ve found the best representation possible.
When you’re seeking a judgment in a personal injury case, the first thing you and your attorney will need to do is prove liability on the part of the defendant. The court will expect negligence or other willful involvement in order for your case to continue.
Once liability has been established, damages will need to be proven. Your lawyer will present the case for whatever compensation you may be owed, whether it’s to cover your hospital bills, replace wages you lost while you were unable to work, or reimburse you for your suffering.
Your Corpus Christi personal injury lawyer will need to exercise deep knowledge of the field, strong ethics, a willingness to track down every bit of evidence, and an eye for detail in order to effectively represent you. Using the fundamental principle of res ipsa loquitur (or “the thing speaks for itself”) and the collected evidence, they will be able to demonstrate that you were wronged and help you to reach a satisfactory settlement with the plaintiff.

How to prevent a car accident?

Some good ways to prepare include planning your route, and that means you aren’t looking at your maps app while you’re backing out of your driveway. While you’re still inside the house, or before you engage the vehicle, take time to plan your route and see if there’s any construction or accidents on the way.
When you’re out to dinner or at happy hour, you make have a couple of drinks. This greatly increases the likelihood of having an accident, and also increases the penalties if you get into an accident. Make sure you have a safe plan to get home before you drink more than one drink.
While you’re in the car, it’s easy to become distracted by what’s on the radio, by passengers, or something on the side of the road. It’s fine to interact with things. It’s normal, but make sure your main attention is kept on the road. This will prevent many accidents. In urban areas, many accidents involve fender benders on crowded roads, and these are often caused by someone looking down at something in their car (likely their cell phone).
Unfortunately, no matter how much we do to prepare, we can’t keep other people from making mistakes. This means that car accidents are sometimes unavoidable, and you may need a Corpus Christi Car Accident Lawyer. Also, we are all capable of making mistakes, so you may need a Corpus Christi car Accident Lawyer for an accident you caused. No matter why you need a car accident attorney, Reyna Injury Lawyers is here for you.

I was run over without a helmet on my motorcycle, do I lose my case?

You might think that if you’re run over on your motorcycle, you can only recover for your damages if you wore a helmet at the time of the crash. This isn’t necessarily the case. A Corpus Christi motorcycle accident lawyer can explain to you how Texas law still allows you to recover in some cases.
In Texas, motorcycle helmet laws are a bit confusing. There are some circumstances where a motorcyclist doesn’t have to wear a helmet. Even if you didn’t wear a helmet, you may have been within your legal rights. In most cases, you have to have proof of health insurance that covers motorcycle injuries in order to lawfully drive without a helmet. It’s important to review the circumstances of your accident with an attorney before you make assumptions about your case.
Even if you’re partially to blame for the accident, you might still be able to recover for your losses. In accident cases, Texas uses what’s called comparative negligence. That means that in order to recover for losses from a motorcycle crash, you can’t be more at fault than the person you’re hoping to recover from. That means that if you’re forty-nine percent at fault and the other driver is fifty-one percent at fault, you can still recovery for your injuries.
It’s up to the jury to assign fault. You shouldn’t assume that you’re at fault before you speak with a Corpus Christi motorcycle accident lawyer. Your team of attorneys can help evaluate your case to help you determine if you’re likely to recover.
If you’re looking for a motorcycle accident lawyer in Corpus Christi, Texas, call the J. Reyna Law Firm. The team of attorneys at J. Rena Law Firm can offer you a complementary evaluation of your case. The J. Reyna Law Firm is committed to offering each client aggressive legal representation that represents their interests to the fullest extent of the law.
