Houston Brain Injury Lawyer

Traumatic brain injuries disrupt normal function to the brain and can range from mild to severe. Mild traumatic brain injuries can heal over time, allowing the accident victim to return to work and normal activities within a matter of days or weeks. Severe TBIs can be very debilitating and can change a person’s life forever. If you or a loved one were injured in an accident that was caused by the negligent, careless, or reckless actions  of another person, you may be eligible to pursue compensation for all accident-related damages.

At the Ben Dominguez Law Firm, our brain injury lawyers in Houston can help you pursue compensation that can provide the financial security you and your family need to allow you to continue to seek proper medical treatment and focus on recovering from this type of catastrophic injury.

A Houston Brain Injury Lawyer Can Help You Receive the Compensation You Deserve

When you sustain a traumatic brain injury in an accident that was caused by the negligence of someone else, it can instantly change your life forever.

A brain injury victim should never have to pay out of pocket for accident-related expenses. With an attorney from our firm by your side, we can help you seek the compensation you deserve for the harm you have suffered.

Liability in a Brain Injury Accident

If you sustained a brain injury in an accident in Houston, that was caused by someone else, you may be entitled to compensation. A traumatic brain injury attorney will meet with you to discuss your legal options and rights. If you decide to work with an attorney, they can gather and analyze evidence and create an effective legal strategy that will prove liability.

These cases can be very difficult to prove on your own. In fact, many brain injury victims sound and look normal, making it difficult to prove the severity of the injury and how it has affected them and impacted their life. An expereinced attorney will know what type of compelling evidence is needed to prove the injured party deserves maximum compensation for their losses.

Brain Injury Accident Case Investigation

This type of accident insurance claim requires help from an experienced lawyer who has the skills and resources to build a strong case. Our attorneys will work with your treating medical professionals, including psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, speech therapists, occupational therapists, and more. We will also work with field experts, such as accident reconstruction experts, life care planners, private investigators, and economists, to ensure that we not only prove the other party was liable, but that we also accurately estimate the value of damages.

Accident victims that suffer moderate to severe brain injuries can require expensive ongoing medical care for the foreseeable future. They may need round-the-clock nursing care, years of occupational therapy and speech therapy, and may be unable to return to the workforce due to their permanent disability.

Our experts will help us determine cost of living expenses, loss of income, loss of earning capacity, future medical treatment costs, and more.

Our attorneys will fight to ensure you receive every penny of compensation you deserve and need, to care for yourself and your family.
