Our Dallas TBI Law Firm Finds Answers After Serious Brain Injuries

A brain injury most often occurs when the head experiences significant pressure or force. When this force is strong enough, a person can suffer what is known as a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Whether a TBI is minor or severe, it may have lasting repercussions on a person’s life.

The types of brain and head injuries include:

  • Skull fractures
  • Intracranial hemorrhage
  • Cerebral contusions
  • Concussions

Over 1.7 million people suffer from traumatic brain injuries each year in the United States. Since many TBIs are unseen, some refer to them as the “Silent Epidemic.”

Often, brain injuries happen because of the negligent behavior of a person or company. When this happens, the injured and their families deserve answers, justice, and financial compensation. Brain injuries require extensive medical care and rehab, they can change a person’s ability to work, and they’re often expensive. Our Dallas brain injury lawyers step in to demand answers from those who could’ve prevented a serious injury, yet didn’t. We know what the families who turn to us are facing, and we refuse to accept anything less than what they deserve.

Frequent Causes of Brain Injury in Dallas

Just about any type of accident can lead to a traumatic brain injury, but certain sites and accidents carry higher risks of severe trauma than others.

While this list is by no means exhaustive, many cases with TBI involve:

As varied as the types of brain injury cases can be, what they tend to have in common is the severity of symptoms, and the high costs of recovery. For many people with TBI, they will need compensation to cover their immediate medical costs as well as future expenses such as physical therapy, rehabilitation, medication, in-home care, and so forth. They also deserve to be compensated for the pain and suffering they've gone through, as well as other damages that are harder to quantify, like memory loss, concentration and learning difficulties, disrupted sleep patterns, and personality changes.

Closed Head Injury Claims in Dallas

One of the most common sources of TBIs after an accident are closed head injuries. These injuries occur when the skull and the dura mater (the membrane that protects the brain and spinal cord) remain intact. Because they have no significant physical manifestations, closed head injuries might go unnoticed until complications emerge later on. Closed head injuries are often caused by the force the body is subjected to during falls, car accidents, or being close to an explosion.

Examples of closed head injuries include:

  • Concussion: A temporary disruption of brain function.
  • Intracranial Hematoma: Bleeding between the brain and skull.
  • Cerebral contusion: Bruised brain tissue.
  • Diffuse axonal injury: When the nerve fibers of a brain’s neurons are damaged.

Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury

Depending on the severity of injury, the symptoms of a traumatic brain injury may include:

  • Mild: Sensitivity to light, noises, memory loss, depression, and issues with attention.
  • Moderate: Difficulty with motor skills and issues with cognitive abilities.
  • Severe: Coma, a vegetative state, or a minimal responsiveness that requires constant care.

If you or a loved one are experiencing “just” mild symptoms, it is absolutely critical that you get medical attention as soon as possible. Even if you're not really exhibiting clear signs of brain injury, if you've been in an accident, it's vital that you see a medical professional right away so they can detect closed head injuries or other TBI before the injuries, and their symptoms, get worse.

Common Questions

  • What Should I Do After a Brain Injury?

    If you or a loved one has been in an accident and think you may have sustained a brain injury, it’s crucial to get medical attention as soon as possible. In some instances, a brain injury won’t show symptoms until well after it has occurred. This makes seeing a doctor whenever you think your head has experienced any force that could cause an injury crucial. Additionally, getting medical attention immediately after an accident will help you create a clear connection between the incident and your injuries. This can help our Dallas brain injury attorneys show that your TBI occurred due to the other party’s negligence.
  • What Are the Signs of a Brain Injury?

    The brain is complex and, because of this, injuries to it can manifest with different symptoms. A mild TBI might present with a short loss of consciousness while serious injuries can leave a person unconscious for a prolonged period. Headaches, speech problems, blurred vision, hearing loss, lack of energy, balance problems, dizziness, and insomnia are all potential signs of a brain injury. A person may also experience mental and psychological problems, such as difficulty concentrating, memory loss, lack of focus, impaired decision-making abilities, depression, and anxiety. If you notice these signs, seek medical care right away.
  • How Are TBIs Treated?

    A traumatic brain injury is best treated immediately. Depending on the type and severity of an injury, treatment options will vary. Some mild injuries only require treatment at home with over-the-counter medications and rest. Severe injuries need to be treated with the careful attention of doctors and, in some instances, surgery. If a person suffers from cognitive or motor declines because of a TBI, they’ll need to undergo extensive rehabilitation to improve their condition. In the most serious cases, rehabilitation will only partially help a person, if at all.
