Houston Brain Injury Lawyers
with Proven Results
Brain injuries can be some of the most difficult life events. They might result from a number of accidents or events, such as:
Brain injuries may be open or closed injuries. Open head injuries are those that result in an actual puncture wound, or break, in the skull. A closed head injury occurs when the skull is not broken or punctured, but the brain is otherwise damaged. An example is a concussion where the brain strikes the inside of the skull.
Both types of brain injury can be severe to life threatening. All minor, moderate and severe head injuries bring the possibility of expensive medical care. Brain injury patients may also be unable to work for some time as a result of the injury, which puts additional strain on finances.
However, you do have options when you or a loved one has suffered a severe brain injury that another party caused. Your attorney can help you explore the options available to you and collect the right evidence to establish your case.
Your Case May Require Expert Testimony
One of the keys to recovering compensation for damages related to a head injury is having qualified experts who can provide testimony about your case. An expert’s opinion and testimony can make the case. Your lawyer can seek out experts with whom consultation will likely be necessary.
These experts may include professionals with knowledge of:
- future medical expenses;
- accident reconstruction;
- economics or finances; and
- neurology and other medical specialties.
Having a legal team as well as experts noted above forms a foundation upon which many cases of sever head injuries have resulted in significant damages.
What compensation might I seek in my brain injury case?
If you or your loved one has suffered a brain injury as the result of another party’s negligent act, you can seek compensation for the damages that result. In this type of case, accident victims and their families might suffer an array of damages.
Appropriate compensation may cover some of the following:
- Medical expenses
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Reduced capacity to earn a wage

Discuss the extent of your damages and the types you may recover with your attorney, as the damages recoverable will vary on a case-by-case basis.
