Truamatic Brain Injury Attorneys

Free Case Review

Corpus Christi attorney Christopher Bandas represents people who have sustained a traumatic brain injury (TBI) because of another’s negligence or misconduct. Traumatic brain injuries can occur during car crashes, as well as workplace accidents.

The potential effect of a traumatic brain injury ranges from a concussion to serious, life-altering disabilities and death.  These injuries can occur when an external object strikes a person’s head, or during a fall when a person’s head strikes the ground or another obstruction.

Closed-head injuries sometimes pose a particular challenge because while such injury victims appear physically intact and otherwise healthy, they do not enjoy the full-range of capabilities that they once held before their brain injuries.  Our firm represents those affected by traumatic brain injuries.  We understand how such injuries impair those affected, as well as the range of compensation needed to be recovered to pay for medical expenses, long-term care, rehabilitation services and lost wages.

Types of Traumatic Brain Injuries

There are two general types of brain injuries: closed-head injuries and penetrating head injuries. A closed injury occurs when the victim’s head suddenly and violently strikes an object, but the object doesn’t break through the skull. A penetrating injury occurs when an object pierces the skull and actually enters the brain tissue. Symptoms of traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can be mild, moderate or severe, depending on the extent of damage sustained by the injured person’s brain. One of the most dangerous aspects of traumatic brain injuries is that, in some cases, symptoms are not evident until several days or even weeks after the injury occurs. Common symptoms of a mild TBI include headache, confusion, blurred vision and trouble with memory, concentration or attention. Signs of a severe TBI may include more significant symptoms like repeated vomiting or nausea, slurred speech, loss of coordination and convulsions or seizures.

Extensive Medical Care for TBI

Unfortunately, even with prompt treatment, little can be done to reverse the initial brain damage caused by serious trauma. There are a number of complications or disabilities that can result from a traumatic brain injury, depending on the location and severity of the injury, and the age and general health of the victim. Among these complications are:

  • Problems with cognition (memory, thinking and reasoning)
  • Problems with communication (expression and understanding)
  • Problems with sensory processing (sight, touch, smell, taste, hearing)
  • Problems with behavior or mental health (personality changes, aggression, anxiety)
  • Problems with communication (expression and understanding)

Rehabilitation is an important component of recovering from a TBI. Experts recommend that brain-injured patients receive an individualized rehabilitation program based on the patient’s strengths and capacities, which is modified over time to adapt to the patient’s changing needs. In some cases, TBI patients may require at-home care for a long-period of time or may even need to be admitted to an assisted living facility, which can result in exhorbitant medical bills.

Attorneys for Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic brain injuries are devastating occurrences on their own. Unfortunately, the medical expenses and emotional pain and suffering that typically accompany these types of injuries can lead to significant personal and financial difficulties for victims and their families. If you or a loved one has suffered from a traumatic brain injury because of another person’s actions or negligence, contact the Corpus Christi personal injury attorneys at Bandas Law Firm for legal guidance. You are not responsible for the negligent acts of another person, and you should not be held accountable for the resulting consequences. With the help of an experienced Corpus Christi personal injury lawyer, you can pursue the financial compensation you deserve for your injuries, medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering.
