Any injury caused by the wrongdoing or negligence of another is a difficult situation for an individual to deal with. Those injuries may range from scrapes and bruises, all the way to death. Oftentimes, catastrophic or serious injuries that lawyers assist clients with are:
- Burn injuries
- Brain injuries
- Spinal injuries

At Kerby & Wade, we are experienced in representing burn injury clients and have sought recovery on their behalf. We understand the care, the providers and the long-term consequences for these clients.
It is oftentimes said that there is no injury that is more painful to an individual than a burn injury. Because of this, burn injury cases are different. A lawyer with experience in both defending and prosecuting burn cases gives you an added advantage.
Our lawyers have participated in depositions of some of the leading experts in the field of burn injuries and understand things such as first, second and third degree burns, as well as the pain, medical care and prognosis that will likely be necessary when a client is undergoing treatment.
Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBIs) are serious in nature and a frightening, frustrating situation for any person to experience, especially when caused by the careless actions of another. We have a strong background in representing individuals and loved ones who are faced with the uncertainty of a brain injury case.
There are many types of traumatic brain injuries, with the results and affected areas differing greatly. TBI cases may lead to years of recovery, rehabilitation, lack of income and limitations, which are all factors that we hold experience in.
Like all catastrophic injury cases, TBI cases require serious lawyers with serious experience, which is why our firm is the only choice when considering an attorney.
Like brain injuries, spinal cord injury cases are often life-changing events. Kerby & Wade has represented clients all the way from quadriplegia to partial paralysis. We will never claim to know exactly what you are going through in any catastrophic injury situation, but we will have the understanding and compassion in knowing what others have been through.
We see to it that a client obtains the best medical care and rehabilitation possible. Families faced with long-term rehabilitation need a lawyer that comprehends not only the law and how best to recover, but what they are going through in such a trying time. Spouses are often left with attempting to figure out how their everyday life will forever be changed and how best to care for their loved one after a spinal cord injury.
With any life-changing injury that affects a person’s ability to work or function, it is necessary for a lawyer to understand the evidence needed to ultimately present a case to a jury for maximum recovery. Neurologists, life-care planners, rehabilitation experts and economists are just a few of the types of experts considered when determining how best to present a case to a jury on an injury that will hinder a person for years in the future.
Our lawyers have apt experience representing clients across West Texas who have suffered an amputation because of the negligence of another. An amputation may be the result of an automobile accident, trucking accident, oil field accident or on-the-job injury. We understand the need to develop a case to highlight the limitations that an amputation will create for years in the future, the rehabilitation necessary and the medical care that will likely result.
We have experience where a person has suffered an amputation but was only hospitalized for a short period of time. Cases such as these are not standard in which a lawyer focuses only on the medical care. Instead, a case must highlight a person’s daily limitations and ongoing struggles.
Because amputation injuries are often suffered on the job, we are trained in recovering from a third party when a claim against an employer would be barred if the employer maintained Worker’s Compensation Insurance.
