Traumatic Brain Injury

Austin Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer

Serving Victims & Families Throughout Texas

Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs for short, occur when a blow to the head or a violent outside force causes brain dysfunction. TBIs can result from auto accidents, assaults, sports injuries, and serious slip and fall accidents. These injuries can take a long time to heal and can potentially have life-altering consequences not only for victims, but for families as well.

If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury because of someone else’s negligence, contact The Stewart Law Firm, PLLC as soon as possible to discuss your legal options at no cost or obligation to you. You may be entitled to compensation for costs related to your accident, including past and anticipated medical care, lost income and earning capacity, pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, and more. With decades of experience in personal injury and brain injury law, we have recovered millions of dollars for the injured.

Types of Traumatic Brain Injury

  • Concussion: The most common type of TBI which may or may not result in a loss of consciousness.
  • Coup-contrecoup: Occurs when an outside force is so strong that it causes the brain to strike both sides of the inside of the skull, causing bruising to both sides of the brain.
  • Contusion: An area of bruising (bleeding) on the brain which may require surgical removal.
  • Diffuse axonal: Large nerve fibers are sheared in many areas throughout the brain, causing loss of connections among neurons.
  • Penetrative: Occurs when a foreign object breaks through the skull and pierces the brain (such as a gunshot wound).

TBI can have a profound impact on a person’s life, potentially affecting their ability to live an independent life, complete daily tasks, and enjoy the same level of employment they did before their accident.

Whether your doctor has classified your brain injury as mild, moderate, or severe, it is important to remember that all brain injuries should be considered serious. If not properly cared for, brain injuries may not have a chance to fully heal and may lead to lasting consequences, including:

  • Memory problems
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Mood swings
  • Frustration or aggression
  • Chronic headaches
  • Difficulty with interpersonal relationships
