What to Expect in Your Brain Injury Case
Costs of TBIs are High. We’ll Investigate What Your Claim is Worth
Nationally, the economic costs of traumatic brain injuries is more than $76 billion, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The financial costs to individuals with brain injuries vary, depending on the severity of injuries. But in more serious cases, lifelong medical treatment may be required. Sometimes 24-hour around-the-clock skilled nursing care is necessary. The costs of medical treatment and rehabilitation for a traumatic brain injury can reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars in a short time and into the millions over a person’s lifetime. The expense of medical care is only a portion of the losses, or damages, that a person with a traumatic brain injury and their family might experience. There are many other costs.
Damages We Pursue in Brain Injury Cases
Claims in traumatic brain injury cases ask for compensation for “damages.” Damages are all the losses that an injured person experiences. So how much money you might get depends on all your losses. Generally, the more serious your injuries and the more negligent the at-fault party was, the more compensation you may be able to get.
Damages in brain injury claims include compensation for things such as the following:
Current and future medical treatment
Current and future rehabilitation and care
Prescription and over-the-counter medications
Medical devices and equipment
Lost income, including past, present, and future earnings
Physical and emotional pain and suffering
Diminished quality of life
Punitive damages for especially negligent or egregious cases.
The Costs of a Brain Injury Add Up Very Quickly
You deserve to be compensated for your injuries when you have suffered a brain injury. Don’t hesitate to consider a legal claim against the party whose negligence caused your injuries. If they had not behaved carelessly, your life would not be changed, and you would not be facing physical and emotional trauma or the costs associated with your injuries. In a split second, a car accident may have turned your life upside down, or a motorcycle accident meant you suffered severe head trauma. When a vehicle accident is the fault of another driver, you have opportunity to win a substantial settlement or verdict in your case. Our clients often worry how much a brain injury costs when they consider medical bills now and in the future. To learn the specifics of what you can expect, you should consult with our traumatic brain injury attorney in Houston. Only through analysis of the specifics of your case can we give you an understanding of how much you might win in a settlement or at trial.
A brain injury can seriously affect the rest of your life. When you have been injured, you need an experienced law firm on your side to help ensure that you are fairly compensated for your damages.

Steps in a Brain Injury Legal Case
We’ll Fight to Get You Justice
Following a traumatic brain injury, your focus should be on your health and well-being. Our focus will be on getting you the compensation you need.
Here are the basic steps we may take in your brain injury case:
We’ll gather all the necessary evidence for your case. Evidence can include medical records, witness statements, expert witness testimony and more.
We typically will try to negotiate an out-of-court settlement with the insurer of the party that caused your brain injury. A settlement can occur at any time during the claims process if both parties agree.
Often, brain injury claims are settled through negotiations and a trial is not needed. But if a settlement can’t be reached in your case, we will advise you about filing a lawsuit and trying the case in court.
When a case is moving toward trial, lawyers for both sides exchange evidence and interview the parties involved and any potential witnesses. This process is called “discovery,” in legal terms.
Mediation takes place as another attempt to resolve the case before trial.
If mediation is not successful, the brain injury case goes to trial.
A verdict is reached in the case by a jury or judge.
When you’ve been the victim of a brain injury, one of the most important steps you can take is to contact an experienced brain injury lawyer. Brain injury claims are very complex. It takes an attorney with a seasoned background handling these types of cases, one who has in-depth understanding of Texas personal injury law.
Answers to Your Questions about Brain Injury Claims
It’s understandable to have questions about filing legal claims. Following are answers to some common questions.
Who Can Be Sued for a Traumatic Brain Injury?
Who can be sued for a traumatic brain injury depends on who caused the negligent accident or other incident in which you were injured. Individuals, companies and other parties may be sued for negligence. Some examples of who may be sued in TBI cases include:
Distracted, drunk, and aggressive drivers who cause injury accidents
Employers of people who cause crashes while driving company vehicles
Stores and other property owners who let dangerous conditions exist that lead to slips and falls and other accidents
Companies that design and manufacture products that cause head injuries
Government agencies who are tasked with maintaining roads and highways that fail to do so
Medical practitioners whose negligence leads to traumatic brain injuries
Individuals who cause traumatic brain injuries through violence.
Choosing whether to file a legal claim against another party is a very personal decision. You may feel bad about it or nervous about the steps involved. But when someone has behaved negligently behind the wheel or in another way, they should be accountable for their actions. After all, if they hadn’t been careless, your life would not have been turned upside down. It’s also important to note that, in some cases, more than one party may be held responsible. For example, if a commercial truck driver causes a crash, the driver and the company may both be named defendants.

How Long Does a Brain Injury Lawsuit Take?
How long a brain injury lawsuit takes will vary with each case. It often depends on the complexity of the case, the severity of injuries, the number of parties involved and the amount of money being sought. In simpler cases, a lawsuit can usually be settled more quickly. More complicated cases take longer.
If your legal claim can be settled through negotiations, it may take just months. The majority of cases do settle outside of court. However, if you are not offered a fair settlement amount and your brain injury lawsuit proceeds to trial, it can take a year or more for it to be resolved. Some especially complex cases can go on for years when appeals are involved. It is important to contact our brain injury lawyers quickly, because there is a statute of limitations of two years after your accident to file your case (Texas C.P.R.C. §16A).
*Always speak directly to an attorney for the exact deadlines that apply to your potential claim(s).

How Much Does a Brain Injury Lawyer Cost?
People who have been injured are sometimes hesitant to hire a brain injury attorney because they don’t think they can afford it. This is why you should know that our knowledgeable brain injury lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. What this means is that you don’t pay us until and unless you win your case. If you don’t win your case, we get nothing. When you win your case, we receive a previously agreed upon percentage of your settlement or award.

What Are Some of The Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries?
We Hold Parties Who Cause TBIs Accountable
How do brain injuries happen? Traumatic brain injuries are caused by an impact or jolt to the head. Some of the common ways they happen are in:
Motor vehicle accidents (including car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, and pedestrian accidents)
Negligent childcare incidents
Being struck by or against an object
Criminal acts (e.g., assault and battery)
Slips and falls.
The most common cause of traumatic brain injuries according to the CDC is falling. Falls account for 48% of all TBI-related emergency room visits. They tend to occur more frequently to older and younger people. Almost half of traumatic brain injury emergency room visits for children were caused by falls. Four out of five (81%) of TBI-related visits to emergency rooms for adults 65 and older were caused by falls. Motor vehicle accidents are the next leading cause of traumatic brain injuries.

Traumatic brain injuries happen everywhere. They can happen on the job when workers slip and fall or fall from heights. Rising work-related fall rates are also believed to contribute to TBI risk. If you’ve had a traumatic brain injury at work, we’ll counsel you about your options for getting workers’ compensation, as well as possible compensation through a legal claim.
No Matter the Cause, You May Have a TBI Lawsuit
If one of the causes listed above applies to your situation, then you should consider exploring your legal options to seek compensation for the costs of your traumatic brain injury. If your injury was caused in another setting but still stems from someone’s careless or reckless behavior, you are well within your rights to pursue payment.

Showing the Signs of a Traumatic Brain Injury?
Immediate Medical Treatment is Critical
Brain injuries carry the potential to have a dramatic impact on our lives. Unlike other types of injuries, a traumatic brain injury can change how we think, behave, speak, and process language. These injuries are also unique because they are not always easily detectable.
After an accident, a brain injury victim might appear confused or, in some cases, might be rendered unconscious. However, people may not immediately recognize these symptoms as signs of a brain injury. When a person suffers a TBI, they should be screened and treated immediately. Loved ones of a TBI victim should also be aware of just how serious these injuries can be and how they might be able to help their loved ones in the recovery process.
Traumatic brain injuries are caused by a blow or jolt to the head. Some are minor, in which case a victim might recover quickly. However, serious brain injuries, or the accumulation of several mild to moderate traumatic brain injuries, can have serious consequences, including mental impairment and difficulty communicating. Concussions are classified as mild TBIs, though they should also be treated very seriously. It is possible to sue for a concussion if the facts of the cause of your injury merit a legal case.
If you or your loved one has experienced an accident or incident where you banged or jolted your head, see a doctor right away. Not only is this important for your health, but if you have suffered a TBI, your doctor’s records of your injuries will be necessary in a legal claim.
Around 155 people die from TBI-related injuries every day in the United States, making it one of the leading causes of death.
Nearly 3,000,000 people each year are treated in emergency rooms, admitted into hospitals, or lose their lives because of TBIs.
TBIs contribute to around one-third of all injury deaths.
Spotting a TBI – Why It’s So Important
Noticing the presence of a TBI in an accident victim is important because, if these injuries are left undiagnosed or untreated, the effects can quickly worsen, causing death, disability, or long-term impairment. It’s imperative that anyone suspected of having a TBI should seek immediate medical attention.
Some of the signs of a TBI include:
Confusion and disorientation
Limited paralysis or numbness in arms or legs
Mood swings, depression, anxiety, and changes in behavior
Sensitivity to bright lights, sounds, or touch
Nausea or vomiting
Blurred or double vision
Persistent headaches, lightheadedness, or dizziness
Ringing in ears
Problems with speech and language
Loss of consciousness
If you notice any of these symptoms in yourself or in a loved one after a fall, motor vehicle crash, or any other type of accident, don’t take any chances. Go to a doctor or emergency room as soon as possible for tests and treatment.
When a traumatic brain injury has lasting consequences, victims should know that they have the right to consider legal action if that injury was caused by someone else’s negligence. If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI and would like to explore a personal injury claim, contact Terry Bryant Accident & Injury Law today to learn more.
