Nix Patterson, LLP

Catastrophic Personal Injury


In addition to our other areas of practice, NP has always handled a wide range of catastrophic injury and wrongful death cases. We have represented those seriously injured and the families of those killed by the wrongful acts of others. We have handled these cases in courts across the country.

A catastrophic injury can result in temporary or permanent disabilities, disfigurement, brain injury, or loss of cognition. Examples include spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, permanent disfigurement, nerve damage, and multiple severe fractures. The cost of treatment and long-term care can be devastating. For example, NP recently represented a client who was paralyzed because a hotel carelessly failed to install a handrail on a staircase.

During the last fifteen years alone, we have helped our clients and their families make significant and meaningful recoveries through verdicts and settlements in individual personal injury cases, in cases ranging from 18-wheeler truck wrecks to severe injuries caused by falling objects at a Wal-Mart store. We are currently prosecuting numerous cases involving heavy truck and 18-wheeler wrecks. To protect the privacy of our clients, the identities of our clients and their specific recoveries must be kept confidential.

If someone else’s carelessness has caused you or a family member to suffer a catastrophic injury, or if you have lost a loved one due to the fault of someone else, NP wants to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
