Experienced Attorneys Fighting For Victims Of Traumatic Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries are often “invisible,” yet they are among the most debilitating injuries a person can suffer. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) can occur as the result of an auto accident, construction accident, serious fall or any incident in which the head strikes something, such as a steering wheel or a floor, or in which the head is struck by something, such as a rock or baseball.
If you or a loved one suffered a TBI due to the negligence of another person, company or organization, contact our experienced and caring attorneys at Dobbs & Porter. You can count on our firm to advocate aggressively on your behalf with insurers and the at-fault party while ensuring you have the support you need throughout the legal process. We will do everything we can to help you recover damages so you can move forward in the best way possible.
Brain Injury Symptoms And Consequences Can Be Life-Changing
There are a wide variety of symptoms associated with TBI, most of which can have harmful effects on a victim’s lifestyle and personality, perhaps permanently. Symptoms commonly include:
- Memory loss
- Trouble thinking, concentrating or paying attention
- Difficulty communicating
- Impaired judgment
- Loss of balance and coordination
- Periodic and unexplained loss of consciousness
- Muscle weakness
- Vision and hearing problems
- Difficulty sleeping or waking up
- Anxiety, depression and mood swings
Head trauma can cause the blood vessels inside your brain to bleed or form a clot, leading to a stroke or other disability. In fact, the chances of a stroke increase dramatically after an accident, especially if a skull fracture occurs. Moreover, the stroke might not occur until months after the accident.
You Can Trust Our Personal Injury Law Credentials
Some lawyers say they “specialize” in a specific legal area as a way of saying that it is a focus of their practice. In Texas, however, the term specialist must be earned. We have an on-site Personal Injury Trial Law Specialist, certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. To earn that certification, a personal injury attorney must meet heightened standards of experience, achievement and specialized education, something less than 10 percent of practicing attorneys can claim.
When you hire our firm, you can feel confident that we have the personal injury knowledge and experience that you and your case deserve.
