Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)

Each year there are roughly 1.7 million traumatic brain injuries or “TBIs” in the U.S. We hear all the time about concussion syndrome in football players and boxers. Brain injuries often occur during car accidents and truck accidents¬†but can be caused by almost any bump, blow, or jolt to the head. There doesn’t even have to be blunt-force trauma to the head — an abrupt, forceful change of motion can move the brain inside the skull and cause the brain to slam against the skull wall.

Brain injuries come in many different varieties, from the most severe — where one is now functioning at a level well below where they were prior to the incident — to a mild condition. A concussion is an example of a mild form of brain injury that often leads only to a temporary impairment but may also possibly lead to full impairment. In cases of more severe brain injury, the victim could experience a loss of memory, a change in personality, a decrease in the ability to communicate and understand others, an inability to walk or use their motor functions, a decrease in IQ, and a loss of taste.

Maximizing Compensation for Brain Injury Claims in Texas

In a brain injury case, damages can encompass a wide range of losses, including:

  • Medical Expenses: A brain injury often requires extensive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and ongoing care. Victims could be qualified for compensation for past and future medical costs related to the injury.
  • Lost Income and Earning Capacity: Many people with brain injuries face challenges in returning to work or sustaining their previous level of employment. Compensation could be sought for lost wages and decreased earning capacity.
  • Pain and Suffering: The physical and emotional toll of a brain injury can be overwhelming. Damages may be awarded for pain, suffering, and diminished quality of life that the victim has experienced.
  • Rehabilitation and Therapy Costs: Brain injuries often necessitate ongoing rehabilitation and therapy. Compensation may be pursued to cover the costs of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and other forms of rehabilitation.
  • Loss of Consortium: In cases where a brain injury affects the victim's relationship with their spouse or family, damages may be sought for the loss of companionship, support, and consortium.
  • Property Damage: If the brain injury occurred in a context involving property damage, such as a car accident, compensation may be pursued for repairing or replacing damaged property.

What is the Statute of Limitations for Brain Injury Claims in Texas?

Texas law imposes a statute of limitations, the time limit within which a legal action will need to be initiated. For brain injury claims in Texas, it is imperative to be aware of these time constraints to ensure that your right to seek compensation is maintained. The statute of limitations for brain injury cases in Texas typically involves a two-year window from the date of the injury.

However, exceptions may apply, and it's crucial to consult with our legal team at Elliott & Ritch, LLP, as soon as possible to assess the specific circumstances of your case. Delaying legal action could jeopardize your capability to seek a claim and pursue the compensation you deserve.
