East Texas Brain Injury Attorney Serving the Greater Houston Area

Of all personal injuries, traumatic brain injury (TBI) is among the most serious. Making claims in cases involving such injuries can be complicated because symptoms, though wide-ranging, may not be immediately apparent. In dealing with lawsuits involving possible brain injuries, it is essential to have an able and knowledgeable attorney at your side, one who will help to evaluate the precise extent of financial damage you and your loved ones have already suffered and will suffer in the future.

How Brain Injuries Occur and Who Is Liable for Them

Any event in which the head area is injured may affect the brain and cause damage. The brain may also be injured through a deliberate attack, a medical mistake or neglect. The reasons for brain injury include:

  • Vehicular accidents-- car, truck, motorcycle, boat
  • Railroad crossing accidents
  • Slip and fall accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Product liability
  • Physical attack with or without a weapon

There are a variety of ways in which another person, company or institution may be liable for a brain injury. The blame for your injury may be attributable to: a driver who was reckless or impaired, defective or inadequately maintained equipment or surfaces, or incompetent, careless or neglectful medical or other care.

Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injury is a complex term covering a wide range of symptoms and disabilities. Depending on the particular part of the brain affected and the severity of the damage, brain injury may result in one or many of the following symptoms:

  • Confusion, dizziness, loss of consciousness
  • Headache, nausea or vomiting
  • Slurred speech
  • Seizures
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Problems with vision, hearing, taste or smell
  • Difficulty concentrating or remembering
  • Depression, anxiety, combativeness, mood swings
  • Weakness or numbness in fingers or toes

In extreme cases, traumatic brain injuries result in altered states of consciousness, such as coma, locked-in syndrome, or vegetative states that may or may not be permanent.
