Brain Injury Lawyers in Corpus Christi
What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?
A traumatic brain injury, or TBI, is defined by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) as a “disruption in the normal function of the brain” caused by a blow to the head or by a penetrating head injury. Falls, car accidents, motorcycle accidents, contact sports, and assaults can cause traumatic brain injuries.
If you have been injured or someone you love has sustained a brain injury in any type of accident, you may be entitled to financial compensation. When a brain injury is caused by negligence or wrongdoing, the at-fault party may be held liable for paying the victim’s medical bills and other related expenses or losses. The Edwards Law Firm has helped victims of traumatic brain injuries and all types of catastrophic injuries in Texas for over 55 years. Our Corpus Christi brain injury lawyers can review your case to determine whether you have a viable claim.
Symptoms of a Traumatic Brain Injury
A traumatic brain injury may range in severity depending on the extent of damage to the brain. Some minor injuries will resolve on their own, while others will cause permanent damage and disability. By recognizing the signs of a traumatic brain injury, you can be prepared to seek medical attention.
The following are danger signs of a serious brain injury:
- Chronic or worsening headache
- Nausea or vomiting
- Numbness or decreased coordination
- Slurred speech
- One pupil is larger than the other
- Difficulty recognizing places or people
- Confusion, restlessness, and agitation
- Loss of consciousness
- Convulsions or seizures
What Caused Your Brain Injury?
Identifying the cause of your (or a loved one’s) brain injury will be an essential part of recovering fair compensation, as it will help us determine who is responsible. In cases involving car, truck, or motorcycle accidents, it may be another driver or even the manufacturer of a defective auto part. Or, it could be a defective product or an unsafe workplace. A thorough investigation will reveal who is at fault.
