What Types Of Injuries Are Considered Catastrophic?
A catastrophic injury is characterized as an injury that results in permanent disfigurement, carries a significant chance of being fatal, or results in the loss or long-term damage to internal organs or other body parts. Catastrophic injuries associated with car accidents include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Injuries resulting in blindness or loss of hearing
- Injuries that impair organ function
- Pressure sores
- Severe burns
People who suffer catastrophic injuries are often unable to return to the activities they enjoyed before being injured. In some cases, they need assistance performing daily activities such as getting dressed, cooking or other household activities. One of our goals is to secure compensation to ensure that debilitated injury victims get the help they need so they don’t need to rely exclusively on family members.
Celebrate Our Client’s Successes
DeQuan Minor’s Story
At the age of 16, I was involved in a single auto accident that left me paralyzed from the waist down. Even though this was a traumatic injury, I did not let my injury stop me from pursuing success in life. After my injury, I won two national championships in wheelchair basketball, graduated from high school, attended the University of Houston, and graduated from the University of Houston. I’m currently pursuing a doctorate degree in occupational therapy, so I can be an asset to individuals with spinal cord injuries in the future. A month after my injury, I was at TIRR Memorial Hermann, an inpatient rehabilitation hospital, where I received a visit from Toby Cole, who informed me about the obstacles I would be faced with as an individual with a spinal cord injury. Little did I know that he would play a huge role in my life going forward. I am writing this heartfelt testimony to express my profound gratitude and admiration for my mentor of the past ten years, Toby. Over the course of this decade-long journey, Toby has not only been a guiding light in my professional life but has also become an invaluable source of inspiration and wisdom.
From the very beginning, Toby exhibited an unparalleled commitment to fostering growth and development in life. Toby’s unwavering support and encouragement have been instrumental in shaping my perspective after my injury. Through the highs and lows, Toby stood by me, offering guidance that was not just career-oriented but also profoundly personal.
What sets Toby apart is not just his expertise in the field of law, but his genuine investment in the success and well-being of individuals he encounters. Toby took the time to understand my strengths, weaknesses, and aspirations, tailoring his mentorship to suit my individual needs. Toby didn’t just impart knowledge; he empowered me to discover my own potential and encouraged me to push beyond my perceived limits.
Beyond the professional realm, Toby has been a beacon of integrity and compassion. His leadership style is characterized by humility, empathy, and a genuine concern for the welfare of others. As a mentor, Toby not only provided life advice but also instilled in me a sense of ethical responsibility and a deep appreciation for the human side of every endeavor.
Reflecting on the past ten years, I can confidently say that Toby has played a pivotal role in my personal and professional development. The lessons I have learned under his guidance extend far beyond friendship, influencing my approach to challenges, my interactions with others, and my overall outlook on life.
