Skilled counsel for Texas brain injury cases

A brain injury is one of the most serious injuries a person can suffer. Because the brain controls so many functions of the body, in addition to our thoughts and emotions, damage to its fragile structure can have life-changing consequences.

If a brain injury was caused by the negligence of another person, the injured person has the right under Texas law to recover damages from that person in a civil lawsuit. Many brain injuries are the result of motor vehicle accidents. In those cases, the insurance company for the negligent driver will be obligated to pay any damages up to the liability limits of the policy. If that is not sufficient, other sources of recovery, such as underinsured motorist coverage, can be explored.

Individuals who have suffered a serious brain injury often need round-the-clock care, and past and future medical expenses must be a major part of any claim. Therapy and rehabilitation can be required for years, even a lifetime. This level of care is expensive and health insurance may not be available to cover all of it.

Loss of future earning capacity is also a significant category of damages in a brain injury case. Many brain injury victims are unable to work again, or can only work for a fraction of their former income.

In addition to out-of-pocket losses like medical expenses and lost income, a head trauma victim can suffer significant intangible losses. It is difficult to place a monetary value on the loss of the ability to function socially or participate in activities that once brought meaning and happiness into one's life. Yet through testimony by experts, family members and others, a skilled personal injury lawyer can make a persuasive case to a jury for an award that is fair and just.

Our attorneys have built solid reputations in the Houston area as skilled, compassionate personal injury attorneys. To learn more about how we can help with a serious brain injury case, visit our Brain Injuries web page.
