Houston Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

Traumatic brain injury (TBI) refers to a range of complex injuries resulting from a blow, a bump, or a jolt to the head. These are common in accidents, and the consequences are often devastating. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that each year, about 1.7 million people in the Unite States obtain TBI, and some 52,000 of them die. Those that survive often have to live the rest of their lives with a certain level of disability.

If you or a loved one has been in an head injury accident, it is crucial to seek professional medical attention right away. Even a minor concussion is considered a form of traumatic brain injury and could lead to more serious medical conditions.

If your accident has resulted in a brain injury, the physical, financial, and emotional aftermath can be a huge burden to bear. But you should not have to bear it alone – you may be able to seek compensation for injuries that someone else has caused. Contact experienced Houston brain injury attorney Andrew Cook of the Cook Law Firm to help get the compensation you deserve for your Texas TBI claim.

Texas Head Injury Cases Are Among The Most Difficult

Even though brain injuries are highly dangerous and may have significant, life-altering consequences, they are often difficult to establish in a legal claim. This is primarily because injuries to the brain have such wide-ranging symptoms and effects, which typically seem vague or inconclusive. (Read more about TBI symptoms and effects below.)

What’s more, it is challenging to make a claim with an insurance company that’s likely to undervalue your head injury even if a CT scan shows signs of a cerebral contusion, hemorrhage , subdural hematoma or a skull fracture. It is well known that insurers often employ tactics to reduce the amount they have to pay accident victims. In a TBI case, where symptoms can be uncertain, it can be easier for an insurance company to undermine your claim or try to deny it altogether.

This is why having an experienced Houston head injury lawyer is important in protecting your rights and claiming what you truly deserve. Andrew Cook is ready to fight for you, with a network of medical professionals and other subject matter experts to establish the true extent of your injury. He’ll pursue your case aided by those professionals and by his own in-depth experience in fearlessly negotiating for accident victims.

Symptoms And Effects Of Traumatic Brain Injury

Take a look at these common symptoms of TBI:

  • Chronic headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Memory or concentration problems
  • Body coordination issues
  • Slurred speech
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Sleeping problems
  • Tiredness, lack of energy, or feeling slowed down
  • Mood swings
  • Nervousness or anxiety.

Notice that many of these symptoms seem random or ordinary in everyday life. But as soon as these signs appear, you must consult with a doctor to help prevent more serious conditions from occurring. Some of the more severe consequences of TBI include:

  • Long-term or permanent disability
  • Cognitive (thinking) problems
  • Memory loss
  • Mobility problems
  • Behavioral changes

There are more health problems – such as depression and other neuropsychological conditions – that are linked to TBI. The most tragic results include coma, irreversible brain damage, and death.

The True Cost of a TBI – And What You May Be Compensated For

The physical suffering brought by a traumatic brain injury can be immense by itself, but along with it are financial and emotional burdens.

Medical bills alone can be incredibly costly. Estimates say that treatment for a mild head injury can cost about $85,000 and for a serious head injury, as high as $3 million. Those estimates do not include the continuous therapy and rehabilitation, additional testing, and future medical expenses that a TBI patient may need. To add to these, a brain injury can mean lost earnings and a further loss of capacity to earn in the future.

The emotional toll on the victim can also be steep. TBI can create significant changes in lifestyle, taking away one’s capacity to enjoy the things he or she once liked. This adds to the emotional and mental anguish that the victim may experience.

All these damages may be compensated for, so if you or someone in your family is a victim of traumatic brain injury, don’t hesitate to consult a lawyer to determine how you can best proceed.
