Brain and head injuries can occur almost everywhere. Traumatic brain injury (TBI) mostly happens in auto accidents, multiple cases of falls, expulsion from a vehicle going fast, crushed in a rollover, falling objects striking the head of the person, hits of a child’s head onto the ground, inside vehicles during an accident, motorcycle crashes even with a protective helmet, fierce explosions, and loads of other scenarios which could be industrial and residential.
In the event that you suspect a brain injury from an accident, seek medical help immediately. Don’t worry about the costs involved. Our Waxahachie brain injury lawyers, who have practiced law for decades, help traumatic brain injury survivors obtain compensation for their resulting damages.

Depending on your circumstances, you could receive compensation for several types of damages. The attorneys at our firm will review your case and determine the value of your case.
What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)?
A traumatic brain injury commonly results from a blow or jolt to the head or body. These injuries can be mild, moderate, or severe. The symptoms that come with a brain injury range based on its severity. Symptoms of a brain injury include:
- Mild TBI: Headache, nausea, vomiting, problems with speech, dizziness, fatigue, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, mood swings, difficulty sleeping, and memory concentration problems.
- Moderate to severe TBI: Persistent headaches, continuous vomiting and nausea, seizures, clear fluids draining from nose or ears, dilation of the pupils, loss of coordination, weakness in fingers or toes, unusual behavior, coma, slurred speech, and confusion.
Loss of consciousness, even for a brief period, is one of the clearest indications that the brain may have been affected by a blow to the head. A confused state involving uncertainty about time, date, location, and /or a period of memory loss for the events surrounding the head injury are also indicators of trauma to the brain. Any of these symptoms following a blow to the head should be taken seriously.
Traumatic brain injury is a serious and debilitating injury. Persons with a serious brain injury frequently have troubles with mental and physical performance and might require continued supervision and assistance as a result of post-concussion syndrome. Even a person who has suffered a head or brain injury, with a little or no documented loss of consciousness, may have permanent deficits which make it impossible for them to return to their previous lifestyle and sphere of activities.
