Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Mayo Clinic states that symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can be as subtle as mood changes, feeling anxious or depressed, exhibiting sensitivity to light or sound, sleeping more than usual, and memory or reasoning problems that were not present before the accident. Other clearer symptoms of a traumatic brain injury may include:
- Asymmetrical pupil size
- Shortness of breath
- Nausea or vomiting
- Chronic or worsening pain
Our personal injury law firm can help you pursue a financial claim for damages that may reflect the amount of your:
- Total medical costs for your treatment
- Therapy into the future as needed
- Prescription medicine
- Pain and suffering
- Mental anguish
- Loss of consortium where applicable
- Temporary or permanent disability
- Loss of enjoyment of life
If you or your parent, spouse, or child have been exhibiting symptoms of a brain injury, we recommend erring on the side of caution and seeing a doctor.

Benefits of Getting Legal Help
From the very beginning, working with a brain injury attorney from our firm may provide you with peace of mind in knowing that your legal interests are being protected by legal professionals while you focus entirely on improving your health.
Proving Liability for Your Brain Injury
While reckless or intentional damages carry penalties, proving liability for negligence is more often how lawsuits are successful. The law requires certain standards and practices to be upheld in the operation of vehicles and other equipment that people need a license to use.
Texas is a shared liability state, meaning that potentially a victim could be deemed partially at fault for their own injuries. If you were struck by a car while obeying the law and suffered a traumatic brain injury, but the other side argues that you were careless in some way, you could be found to be partially at fault and lose out on a percentage of your damages.
Collecting Evidence to Prove Your Innocence
Evidence does not last forever in the field, and we can assist in gathering any relevant evidence that would go beyond the scope of police department resources.
Evidence in the police report is available to all sides in litigation, but if we can secure additional evidence, this can be to your advantage if disagreements should arise in the settlement process. We can look at:
- Nearby security or traffic camera footage
- Summoning cell phone records to verify if a driver was distracted
- Requesting trucking logs to verify if a truck driver was drowsy
- Community outreach to find potential witnesses
- Roadway skid marks
- Debris patterns

Common Causes of TBIs
The causes of traumatic brain injuries historically include:
- Houston car accidents
- Slip and falls
- Workplace accidents
- Assault or battery
- Manufacturer defects
- Heavy equipment operator error
- Negligent real estate conditions
- Drowning or asphyxiation close calls
Some people do not know the exact cause of their brain injury. Memory loss is a symptom of TBI, and many people wake up in the hospital without any idea of how exactly they ended up getting hurt. For example, many people who were hit by a driver who drove away lose memory surrounding the incident.
Hit and run is a violation of Texas Revised Transportation Code § 550.022, which requires all drivers to stop at the scene of an accident regardless of who is at fault.

Texas’s Statute of Limitations to Be Aware of
According to Texas Transportation Code §16.003(a), someone who may have been hurt through the fault of another may only have two years to initiate a personal injury lawsuit in court. Exhausting this period may inhibit you from pursuing compensation for your damages.
It may seem like there is no rush to act if you have two years, but a lawyer from our firm has to establish a party’s negligence, and this takes time with all the evidence there is to gather.
Overview of Brain Injuries
Head injuries can be debilitating injuries and can change one’s lifestyle. Tragically, they disproportionately affect some of our most vulnerable, children and the elderly. Sadly, traumatic brain injuries are the leading cause of death in children. You do not have to suffer in silence if someone caused your head injury or that of a close family member.
Serious brain injuries are tragic and can result in chronic pain, disability, or a persistent vegetative state in the injured. A traumatic brain injury is a common cause of death from heavy equipment accidents such as motor vehicle collisions.
