Any organ or body part is susceptible to injury and damage during an accident, but the brain is one of the most vulnerable. It has far less healing capacity than other organs, and when it gets seriously damaged, victims can suffer from profound cognitive and behavioral changes.

Minor traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) are called concussions, and while most people recover from them, they can still result in lasting damage. More serious TBIs can result in permanent changes to personality and cognition, and in extreme cases, victims may be unable to live independently or care for themselves, while others may be rendered unconscious or minimally conscious for long periods of time—even indefinitely.

At Daniel Stark Injury Lawyers, we’re here to help victims of TBIs and their families get the compensation they deserve. If you or someone you love suffered a TBI during any of the following types of accidents, call us for a free consultation:

  • Auto accidents – TBIs can occur during auto accidents both from impact with hard surfaces and from the brain moving inside the skull.
  • Motorcycle accidents – TBIs are extremely common during motorcycle accidents when victims aren’t wearing helmets, but even protective gear can’t always prevent them.
  • Construction accidents – Hard hats can help reduce the risk of TBIs on construction sites, but many workers suffer serious brain injuries every year due to falls, falling objects, and other work-related causes.

TBIs are life-changing and require the help of experienced and knowledgeable Texas brain injury attorneys. Don’t delay if you need legal help with a TBI—get the representation you deserve.
