Five Reasons Texans Should Hire a Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) can impact the lives of not just the victim of an accident, but also your loved ones. More than 1.4 million Americans suffer from these types of injuries every year, and roughly 80,000-90,000 people experience long-term disabilities. 

At The Stewart Law Firm, we’ve seen just about every type of brain injury case their is, and we are dedicated to fighting tooth and nail to get our clients the compensation they need to get the care they deserve. In this blog, we’ll take a look at how TBIs are categorized in Texas, how negligence and wrongful death are defined, and outline five reasons you may want to work with a dedicated personal injury team like ours to prove your case.

  • They Can Help Clarify What Type of TBI You May Have Suffered

Any accident that involves blunt force trauma to the head can potentially result in a TBI. There are various degrees assigned to these types of injuries, ranging from mild to severe. TBIs are extremely damaging to the brain and in some cases, can lead to a coma or worse.  In Texas, a mild TBI is defined as experiencing changes in brain function for a few minutes after trauma. Although it may be the least severe case of a TBI, without immediate attention, even mild TBIs may worsen.

If you have a severe TBI, unfortunately, you may not realize it as these injuries manifest later in some cases, or people think they’re experiencing something else. No matter the medical severity of your traumatic brain injury, it will directly affect your personal and work lives; therefore it demands attention. 

  • An Attorney Will Be Well-Versed in These Legal Matters

All TBI victims, from mild to severe cases, may experience debilitating symptoms for a long time. Based on the nature and extent of you or your loved one’s injuries, you may be entitled to compensation. 

In some cases, the damages awarded by the courts can be in the neighborhood of a million dollars, though it’s important to remember the results of previous cases are not a promise of your expected results. A Texas attorney experienced in TBI cases can help you determine what damages you may receive, and fight by your side to help you get them.

  • Your Lawyer Can Help Gather All the Relevant Information

There are many moving pieces to a TBI case, starting with the medical diagnosis from your doctor. 

Given that a brain injury may be misdiagnosed or missed at the beginning, you may decide to work with a TBI attorney in Texas who will do everything in their power to make sure you are treated fairly by the doctors. 

Your lawyer can also assist you in dealing with insurance carriers, how to collect evidence after incidents, and quantifying damages as a result of the TBI in question. 

  • They Will Thoroughly Investigate Your Case

Police and insurance company investigations are not always 100% accurate, which is why it’s so helpful to have your attorney conduct their own investigation. 

Some common causes of TBIs in Texas include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents (affecting both passengers and pedestrians) 
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Sports injuries
  • Violent assaults
  • And more

Your attorney may even leverage professional investigators to help. Your personal injury case will depend on many things, and your legal team will re-interview witnesses to bolster your claim.

Your lawyer may also reconstruct the events leading to your accident by hiring technical experts to run computer-based simulations. This can go a long way towards confirming your testimony of the events. 

  • They Will Help You Get Your Life Back On Track

Nothing can undo an accident that should never have taken place. TBIs can have a debilitating effect on both your body, your emotions, and your finances. An experienced TBI attorney will have the resources and the passion to help you attain compensation. Getting assistance to seek justice against the negligent party will help relieve the emotional and mental load from your shoulders so you and your family can begin to move forward.
