What should I expect after a head injury?

Your brain is one of the most important organs in your body. It manages emotions, stores memories, facilitates communication, and controls movement. When a blow to the head occurs, it can change the quality and course of your life in an instant. 

We recommend receiving a medical evaluation to determine the severity of the injury as soon as possible. Our main concern is the health and safety of our clients. We want to help you win the largest brain injury settlement possible, so you can afford the best quality of care. 

Oftentimes, head injuries cause permanent side effects, including:

  • Memory loss
  • Blurry vision
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Impaired decision making
  • Changes in personality
  • PTSD

If you or your loved one’s accident was caused by the negligence of another party, don’t suffer in silence. Expect our team to take your case personally and utilize our trusted network of medical professionals and subject matter experts to answer any questions you have and help you quickly obtain a fair settlement.

Types of brain injuries you shouldn’t deal with alone

All brain injuries from minor concussions to open skull fractures deserve serious attention. When these injuries are caused by a car accident, plant explosion, defective product or the negligence of another party, a Houston brain injury lawyer from Grimes & Fertitta will take your family by the hand give you the peace-of-mind you deserve.  

The brain can receive several different types of injuries depending on the direction and amount of force that impacts the head. 

Common injuries caused by negligence include:

Open head injury:

Injuries that result in a puncture wound or crack in the skull. These injuries often cause more extensive side effects due to the amount of force required to penetrate the skull.

Closed head injury:

Injuries where the skull is not broken or punctured, but the brain has received trauma. A concussion is a prime example of this type of injury.

Diffuse axonal injury:

Diffuse axonal injuries happen when axons or fibers in the brain tear due to rapid acceleration and deceleration. The most common example of diffuse axonal injury is whiplash. (Example: whiplash could be caused by a motorcycle or bicycle accident.)

Traumatic brain injury (TBI):

A small bump to the head can cause discomfort, but when the impact has a great amount of force, it can be classified as a traumatic brain injury (TBI). These injuries can be open or closed and generally have serious and often permanent side effects. 

What compensation can you help my family obtain?

Every head injury case is unique. Our compassionate, experienced Houston brain injury lawyers will invest the time needed to identify all possible treatment options and associated costs. We will negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf and keep you up-to-date with the process. While we try our best to settle outside of court. When appropriate settlements are not reached, we will pursue your best interests in front of a judge and jury. 

Some of the costs we fight to obtain compensation for include:

  • Ambulance or life flight
  • Overnight monitoring
  • Brain surgery
  • Follow-up visits
  • Childcare
  • Night nurse
  • Physical therapy
  • Medical equipment
  • Lost wages
  • Funeral costs

Bills should not pile up due to the negligence of another party or greedy insurance companies. We’re going to be your advocates and will fight for every penny you and your family deserve.
