Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries can be devastating and life-altering. Often, victims can no longer perform all the ordinary functions of daily life. Many need constant care, frequently for the rest of their lives. If a loved one has suffered a serious or catastrophic personal injury, contact the experienced attorney at The Bates Firm, in San Antonio, Texas.

Catastrophic injuries frequently fall into four broad categories:

  • Brain Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Burns
  • Amputations

If someone you know has suffered a catastrophic injury, contact injury lawyer, Harry S Bates, for a free initial consultation and case evaluation. Our telephones are answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Brain Injuries

Brain injuries can occur as the result of many different types of accidents that involve head trauma. Brain injuries often result from:

  • Automobile Accidents and Car Crashes
  • Trucking Accidents and Semi Truck Crashes
  • Motorcycle Accidents
  • Birth Injuries
  • Industrial Accidents
  • Gun Shot Injuries

Unfortunately, many brain injuries are irreversible and will require significant medical intervention, rehabilitation and long term care. Contact brain injury attorney, Harry S. Bates, to file your head trauma lawsuit.

Spinal Cord Injuries

Spinal cord injuries result from many of the same types of personal injury accidents as those that cause brain injuries, including car and truck accidents, birth injuries, and industrial accidents. As with brain injuries, spinal cord injuries often involve significant medical intervention, rehabilitation and long-term care.

If someone you love has suffered a spinal cord injury, you need skilled back injury lawyer to make certain your loved one gets compensation to provide the care they need. You need The Bates Law Firm.

At The Bates Firm, we fight to ensure that injured persons receive compensation that allows them to benefit from all the medical care their conditions require. Contact us today for assistance with your spinal injury case.


While burns can be devastating, medical treatment and intervention can significantly improve the lives and prognosis of burn victims. However, such medical treatment and rehabilitation is usually costly and long term. Some burn related treatments involve multiple skin graft operations that occur over time.

If you or loved ones have suffered a burn injury, contact the experienced injury attorney Harry S. Bates.


With recent advances in the development of prosthetic devices, personal injury victims who have suffered an amputation can lead more productive lives than in times past.
