Approximately 144,000 Texans sustain a traumatic brain injury (TBI) each year, that is one person every 4 minutes, according to the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. A TBI is one of most severe injuries to happen to a person after a car accident, creating possible lifelong disabilities.

No two brain injuries are alike and the impact a TBI can have will vary person to person. One might experience impairment in some or all of the following areas at varying degrees:
Some symptoms occur immediately following a TBI, and some may even develop years later. Living with this kind of traumatic injury not only impacts you physically but in your personal life as well. It can cause strain on relationships with family and friends, especially if you require a caretaker, not to mention the financial stress from mounting medical bills.
If your brain injury is a result of another person’s negligence, with the help of a skilled brain injury lawyer you can obtain compensation for your losses. A legal team will be knowledgeable about how to investigate your case in order to pursue a strategy that will result in a full and fair financial recovery.

In some cases, punitive damages may be sought as well. These damages are aimed to punish the at-fault party if they were especially reckless or for their willful misconduct.
