Traumatic Brain Injury

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an extremely serious injury that may result in permanent damage, requiring ongoing medical treatment for the rest of the individual’s life. If you or a loved one were involved in an accident that was caused by the negligence of another and sustained a TBI, you must take legal action as soon as possible. 

At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, our traumatic brain injury lawyers understand how devastating this type of injury can be and how it can affect every aspect of the accident victim’s life, preventing them from ever returning to work and requiring extensive medical care. We will work tirelessly to build a strong case and prove liability to hold the negligent party accountable and to ensure you obtain the compensation you need to continue to receive vital medical care that can aid in your recovery.

What Are the Common Causes of TBIs?

Traumatic brain injuries can result from an accident or incident that involves sudden, forceful impacts on the head or body. 
Common causes of TBIs include:

Car Crashes

Auto accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrian accidents, and collisions involving bicycles can cause TBIs. The sudden impact of a vehicle crash can result in the head striking against hard surfaces or being whipped around forcefully, leading to brain injuries.

Slip and Falls/Trip and Falls

Falls are a leading cause of TBIs, especially among children and older adults. Falls from heights, such as slipping on ice, falling down stairs, or tripping on uneven surfaces, can result in head injuries if the head strikes the ground or another object.

Recreational Activities

High-impact sports carry a risk of head injuries due to collisions, falls, or blows to the head. Other recreational activities such as skiing, snowboarding, skateboarding, and cycling can also lead to TBIs if accidents occur.

Physical Violence

Acts of violence, including assaults, physical altercations, or domestic violence incidents, can cause traumatic brain injuries. Blows to the head from punches, kicks, or blunt objects can result in concussions, contusions, or more severe brain injuries.

Bike Accidents and Pedestrian Accidents

Bicycle accidents involving collisions with motor vehicles or falls from bicycles can cause traumatic brain injuries if the head strikes the ground or another object. Pedestrians struck by vehicles or involved in accidents may also suffer TBIs.

Accidents in the Workplace

Certain occupations carry a higher risk of traumatic brain injuries, particularly in industries such as construction, manufacturing, or agriculture. Accidents involving falls from heights, being struck by falling objects, or being caught in or between machinery can lead to head injuries.

Industrial Accidents

Accidents in industrial settings, such as falls, being struck by machinery or equipment, or exposure to hazardous substances, can lead to traumatic brain injuries. Workers in construction, mining, or manufacturing may be particularly vulnerable to head injuries.

What Types of Damages Can I Recover for a Traumatic Brain Injury Accident?

The damages you’re entitled to will depend on the specific circumstances surrounding your case. For example, if you suffered a severe traumatic brain injury that prevents you from ever returning to work, you’ll receive a larger settlement amount compared to an accident victim who sustained a mild concussion. Aside from the severity of your injuries, other factors that can impact what damages you’re entitled to can include how much time you missed at work, your level of fault, whether multiple parties were involved, and your prognosis. 

In some cases, a TBI accident victim can recover compensation for the following types of economic and non-economic damages:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Past and future medical care expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Loss of consortium
  • Personal property damage
  • Loss of earning capacity
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of quality of life
  • Loss of enjoyment of life
  • Permanent disability
And more.

What is the Statute of Limitations for TBI Accidents in Texas?

You will have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit against the negligent party. If you miss this important deadline, your case may be dismissed and you will be unable to recover any compensation for your accident-related losses. When you hire a traumatic brain injury attorney at Loncar Lyon Jenkins, you can feel confident that your lawsuit will be filed on time, within the statute of limitations.
