An Alvin Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney Helps Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) Victims Recover Financial Compensation for Their Injuries
If you or a loved one has suffered a TBI due to someone else’s negligence, such as careless driving that leads to an accident, let a skilled and experienced Alvin traumatic brain injury lawyer at DeKeyzer Law help you during this difficult time. We’ll handle the insurance companies and any opposing legal party so that you can focus on your recovery.
According to the Mayo Clinic, traumatic brain injury usually results from a violent blow or jolt to the head or body. An object that goes through brain tissue, such as a bullet or shattered piece of skull, can also cause traumatic brain injury. A mild traumatic brain injury, like concussions, may affect your brain cells temporarily. A more serious traumatic brain injury can result in bruising, torn tissues, bleeding, and other physical damage to the brain. These injuries can result in long-term complications or death.
Further, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 223,050 TBI-related hospitalizations in 2018 and 60,611 TBI-related deaths in 2019. This represents more than 610 TBI-related hospitalizations and 166 TBI-related deaths per day. These estimates do not include the many TBIs that are only treated in the emergency room, primary care, urgent care, or those that go untreated.
Showing the Existence of a Legitimate TBI in Texas
The first step in any insurance or legal recovery is establishing a true TBI. Unfortunately, the insurance company or opposing party will do or say anything to minimize your injury. Establishing all aspects of your TBI becomes even more complex and complicated because often, TBI symptoms may not become entirely measurable for days, weeks, or even months.
Furthermore, because TBI damage occurs inside the head and may not be seen from a simple examination of the outside of the head, the true extent of your damages requires sophisticated testing from expert doctors. An Alvin traumatic brain injury attorney at DeKeyzer Law will ensure that all of your injuries, past, present, and future, are accounted for and compensated.
Showing a Connection Between an Accident and a TBI in Texas
Apart from establishing the extent of your TBI injuries, the most important aspect of an insurance claim or legal claim is establishing a connection between the accident and the TBI; in other words, the accident was the sole reason for your TBI injuries.
One of the most effective ways of doing this is through pictures. If allowed in as evidence, pictures are very persuasive evidence for establishing the likelihood of TBI injuries, especially in front of a jury. Although an extremely emotional and difficult task, pictures should be taken of all of the damage to any vehicle involved, both interior and external, and, if possible, the external injuries to the victim. The greater the damage to the vehicles and the extent of any exterior injuries to the victim strengthens the contention that the accident caused the victim’s injuries.
Other types of evidence may be allowed, including expert testimony regarding changes to the victim’s physical and mental capacities, memory, and behavioral or emotional changes. In addition, witness statements, family member statements, and medical documentation are important to establish the connection with convincing accuracy, especially in the “before/after” context.
