Brain injuries occur because of some type of trauma to the head. That trauma can be caused by internal factors or external forces. Brain injuries are classified based on whether the skull was penetrated.
Open head injuries happen when the skull is broken or penetrated. They can occur when the skull is penetrated by debris in a motor vehicle accident or a gunshot.
Closed head injuries, on the other hand, typically involve some type of blow to the head. The force of the blow itself can cause the brain to move violently within the skull. Many brain injuries occur because of that movement or the force of the brain hitting the inside of the skull.
Not all brain injuries happen because of a blow to the head. You could also sustain brain damage because of oxygen deprivation or even exposure to toxic chemicals.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a broad term used to classify any type of brain damage caused by external forces.
Some common types of brain injury include:
Brain injuries can also be classified as primary or secondary injuries. Most primary brain injuries happen suddenly after an accident. Secondary brain injuries, on the other hand, develop slowly over time after the victim has sustained some other type of trauma.
The signs and symptoms of a brain injury vary depending on the region of the brain that was impacted. Not all symptoms are immediately apparent after an accident.
If you’ve been involved in an accident or suffered a blow to the head, it’s essential to pay attention to the following signs:
You should always seek medical attention after an accident. Any of these signs could indicate that your brain was injured.
Common long-term consequences of a traumatic brain injury include:

The value of any personal injury case will vary from case to case. To assess your case value, our Austin brain injury attorneys will carefully evaluate the facts and circumstances of your injury. By working closely with your doctors and other specialists, we can calculate the fair value of your personal injury claim and prevent the insurance companies from taking advantage of you.
The factors that will be most important to your case’s value include:
Our lawyers will consider your financial and personal losses when calculating your case’s value. We’ll also work with experts to estimate your potential future needs.
Damages in Texas personal injury cases are classified according to whether they represent economic (financial) losses or non-economic damages. You can seek compensation to cover your total economic and non-economic damages under Texas personal injury laws.
You may be able to receive compensation for:
While you can pursue compensation for all of your losses, there are cases where your damages may be reduced. If you share part of the blame for the accident, for example, your award can be reduced in proportion to your percentage of fault under Texas comparative negligence laws.
The statute of limitations in most personal injury cases is two years. Under Texas law, if you don’t take legal action within two years after your accident, you’ll lose your right to file a personal injury lawsuit for damages.
You could have more or less time to act. For example, cases involving medical malpractice must be filed within two years of the date you discover the injury (and no more than ten years after the injury occurred).
