The human brain is the seat of consciousness, personality, and cognition. When it gets damaged due to an accident, injury, illness, or medical mistake, it can cause victims to suffer profound changes, challenges, and disabilities.
At Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers, our Texas brain injury lawyers are here to stand up for the rights of people who suffered traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) due to other people’s or parties’ negligence. There are many ways people can suffer TBIs due to someone else's negligence, such as drunk driving, failure to uphold safety standards at a workplace, and medical malpractice.
No matter how TBIs happen, it’s important that victims get dedicated legal representation. That’s because the expenses associated with TBIs can be enormous and are often too much for single families to bear.
Some of those expenses include:
- Medical bills—In addition to bills for immediate treatment, TBI victims also may rack up bills for ongoing care and rehabilitation. Severe TBIs may result in an inability to live independently, and victims may require in-home and around-the-clock care from specialized nurses and other healthcare professionals.
- Lost wages—TBIs can often make it difficult or impossible for victims to return to work. That means that in addition to losing wages while they recover, they also may lose their entire careers. When TBI victims are primary income earners for their households, their families may suffer due to lost paychecks and an uncertain financial future.
If you or someone you love suffered a TBI, consider contacting experienced brain injury attorneys who know Texas law. It can make the difference between paying out of pocket and getting the lifetime of medical care you need.
