We all hope that an accident ends with no injuries. Unfortunately, many car collisions, and other accidents, end with serious bodily injuries, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs).
During an automobile accident, two objects are traveling at high speeds. The weight of the vehicles, in combination with the high velocity, creates an extreme force. The impact can cause massive whiplash and subsequently, head and brain trauma.
If you or someone you love suffered a brain injury in an accident, and you believe someone else was at fault, contact our brain injury attorneys at Tijerina Legal Group. Our founding partner, Humberto Tijerina, has successfully recovered millions of dollars on behalf of severely injured individuals throughout the Rio Grande Valley. Our firm understands the complexities involved in these types of cases, and we know what it takes to recover the full financial recovery you deserve.
Common Types Of Brain Injuries In Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents commonly cause several different types of traumatic brain injuries:
Nearly all brain injuries result in lasting or permanent damage. Victims will typically experience a range of complications and may be unable to work, drive, or care for themselves or their families. The cost of treating a brain injury is typically exorbitant, exceeding hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars and putting families under extreme financial hardship.
File A Lawsuit For Brain Damage After An Accident
If you or a loved one have suffered a brain injury in an accident and someone else was at fault, you could be entitled to financial compensation. For example, in a car collision, Texas personal injury laws allow you to file a claim against the at-fault driver’s insurance company to receive a settlement. In some cases, the insurance company will refuse to honor your claim or offer a fair settlement. When this happens, our firm is ready to take your case to trial in order to fight for the maximum compensation you are owed.
At Tijerina Legal Group, we frequently work with accident reconstructionists, medical professionals, economists, and other experts to determine exactly how an accident occurred, how it has affected our client, and who is liable. We evaluate your medical bills and identify your future projected costs associated with your brain injury in order to build a comprehensive picture of your damages. From there, our brain injury attorneys can aggressively advocate for every penny you deserve.
