A Houston-Area Attorney Will Advocate for Brain Injury Victims
Brain injuries, sometimes called traumatic brain injuries, or TBI, occur when a force strikes the head and causes direct physical damage to the brain. (This is different than brain damage caused by toxins like lead paint, or a chemical reaction to a dangerous drug.)
It is not necessary for the skull to fracture or break open for the brain to sustain a traumatic injury, such as a concussion caused by a recreational injury or a fall down. Injuries where the integrity of the skull is compromised are referred to as open head injuries. These are usually the result of extreme force such as a motorcycle accident, falling from collapsed scaffolding, or from being shot in a hunting accident.
Brain injuries affect the rest of the victim's life. Victims may lose the ability to support themselves or live independently. That's what makes justice so important in these cases.
