Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney San Antonio Texas

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) is sudden trauma to the head that results in damage to the brain. It can have devastating and long-lasting effects on the victim and the victim’s family. Each year, there are approximately 2.5 million visits to the emergency room, hospitalizations, or deaths associated with traumatic brain injury.

Traumatic brain injury is a contributing factor of a third of the injury-related deaths in the United States. Traumatic brain injury can range in severity:

  • Mild – concussion
  • Moderate – loss of consciousness
  • Severe – coma/permanently disabled/death

Traumatic Brain Injuries are mostly caused by:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Blunt force
  • Falls
  • Hard hits to the head
  • Sports injuries

Despite having a strong skull, the human brain is quite soft and vulnerable to hard blows to the head or strong shaking of the head which can cause serious physical, mental or even emotional harm. TBI can cause:

  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Reduced motor skills
  • Vision problems
  • Loss of balance
  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Behavioral/personality changes
  • Long term disability/total incapacity

Because TBI can cause severe injuries, it can be a long road to get the injured person back to where he or she was before the injury. If you or a loved one are suffering or have suffered from TBI caused by someone else’s negligence, you and your family can be subject to a variety of damages including but not limited to:

  • Medical expenses
  • Rehabilitation expenses
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Loss of wages
  • Home modification requirements
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of consortium
  • Future care/medical expenses
