Carrollton may be a prominent city in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, with a diverse local economy and a strong business and residential community, but that does not mean that personal injury accidents occur any less frequently there than in other Texas cities. Personal injury accidents are so named because they are caused by the negligence of another, whether it is another person or entity. Being the victim of an accident can result in serious injuries that change your entire way of life. One of the most devastating personal injuries a victim can suffer is brain injury.
Understanding Traumatic Brain Injury
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is an acquired brain injury that is caused by sudden trauma to the head, which subsequently causes damage to the brain. This trauma may be the result of the head violently striking an object, a wall, or the floor, but may also result from a projectile piercing the brain tissue. A concussion is the most common form of brain injury. Symptoms of brain injury may vary, depending on the severity of the personal injury accident, but they can include:
- Ringing in the ears;
- Blurred vision;
- Mood changes;
- Cognitive difficulty;
- Loss of coordination; and/or
- Weakness in the extremities.
Treating Brain Injuries
It is very important that a person suspected of suffering brain injury seek medical treatment right away so that medical professionals can stabilize their condition and prevent further injury. Even with immediate medical attention, it is possible that brain injury victims may permanently lose the ability to perform certain functions and cannot support themselves without daily care. To have your life completely turned upside down because of the negligence or recklessness of another is inexcusable.
Holding Negligent Parties Accountable in Texas
Brain injuries may result from a wide range of personal injury accidents, including car accidents, truck crashes, other vehicle collisions, and slip and falls. Oftentimes, these accidents are caused by other people who are inattentive, distracted, intoxicated, or otherwise negligent in their duty to consider the safety of others when they drive, develop/manufacture a product, or manage a property. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury as the result of another's negligence, you may face obstacles in your recovery, but with the help of an experienced attorney, you will not have to face those obstacles alone.
