Brain Injuries

Amarillo Brain Injury Lawyer

Brain Injury Cases in Texas

A brain injury is one of the worst injuries a person can sustain. Because the brain is responsible for every bodily action, a brain injury can affect everything from a person’s ability to speak to his or her ability to move around to his or her ability to care for him/herself. The cost of treating a brain injury is exorbitant, and many victims will never fully heal.

If you or someone you love suffered a brain injury and you believe someone else’s careless, reckless, or negligent actions were to blame, you could have grounds for a personal injury claim.

At Wood Law Firm, LLP, our Amarillo brain injury lawyers are ready to help you understand your legal options, including your right to fair compensation. We are passionate about seeking justice on behalf of accident victims and those injured due to another’s negligent or wrongful conduct.

To discuss your potential case with a member of our team, call (806) 304-0447 or contact us online. Your initial consultation is free and there are no fees unless we recover compensation for you.

Common Causes of Brain Injuries

Brain injuries, specifically traumatic brain injuries (TBIs), are commonly caused by accidents and other catastrophic events.

Often, these incidents are entirely preventable. When another person or party is negligent or acts unlawfully, leading to a serious injury, the victim and/or his or her loved ones can seek justice and financial compensation by filing a civil lawsuit against the at-fault party.

Some of the leading causes of brain injuries include:

At Wood Law Firm, LLP, our Amarillo brain injury lawyers can help you take legal action if your or your loved one’s traumatic brain injury was the result of another person or entity’s negligence or misconduct. We have extensive experience investigating and litigating these types of claims, and we have a proven record of success in representing injured Texans fight for the fair recoveries they were owed.

Types of Brain Injuries

Like any other injury, brain injuries range in severity. While some TBIs are less serious than others, however, all brain injuries are considered serious. If you suspect you or someone else has sustained any type of brain injury, no matter how seemingly mild, seek medical attention right away.

Common TBIs include:

  • Concussions: A concussion is considered a relatively mild brain injury, though it can still have adverse effects. This is especially true when an individual suffers multiple concussions over time or when a concussion is particularly severe. Concussions occur as a result of a blow to the head or the head making sudden impact with another object, such as the ground or the dashboard of a car. A concussion can lead to mild to moderate brain damage and may occur alongside other brain and head injuries, such as contusions (bruises).
  • Coup-Contrecoup Injuries: A coup-contrecoup injury occurs when the head is struck by or makes impact with an outside object and the force of this impact causes the brain to slam against the opposing inside of the skull. This results in two points of injury on the brain: one at the initial point of impact and one where the brain makes contact with the inside of the skull.
  • Diffuse Axonal Injury: Diffuse axonal injuries (DAIs) are very serious brain injuries and can lead to massive brain damage, coma, or death. DAIs occur when the head moves violently on the neck, causing the brain to move separately within the skull. This leads to tearing (or “shearing”) of the connections in the brain, causing severe and often irreversible damage. This type of brain injury can be difficult to detect, making it even more dangerous.
  • Penetrating Injury: As opposed to concussions, coup-contrecoup injuries, DAIs, and brain contusions, which are all closed-head injuries, a penetrating brain injury is a type of open-head injury. These occur when an outside object pierces the skull (causing skull fracture) and makes contact with the brain. Penetrating brain injuries are some of the most serious TBIs and often lead to permanent, irreversible brain damage, as well as coma and death.
