New Braunfels Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

Assisting Victims of Traumatic Brain Injury in New Braunfels, Comal County, and Seguin

While there are multiple types of injuries that can affect a person who has been involved in a motor vehicle accident or another dangerous situation, some injuries are considered to be catastrophic. These injuries may be severe enough to permanently affect a person's life, limiting their ability to work or engage in daily activities and causing a great deal of financial and personal difficulty. Some of the most serious types of catastrophic injuries may affect the brain, spinal cord, and central nervous system. If you or someone you love is suffering from a spinal cord injury or traumatic brain injury (TBI), please contact our Texas brain injury lawyer. The Bettersworth Law Firm will review your case for free and discuss any concerns you might have.

Common Causes of Traumatic Brain Injury

Some of the leading causes of traumatic brain injuries are car accidents, motorcycle accidents, serious slip-and-fall accidents, violence, and sports accidents. Ultimately, a traumatic brain injury is caused by an external force acting upon the skull and brain, resulting in diminished or incapacitated brain function. When a TBI victim survives the injury, the side effects can range in severity, and they may be long-lasting or permanent.

Effects of TBIs may include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Paralysis
  • Short or long-term coma
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Memory loss
  • Lost or diminished speech, hearing, writing, and reading skills
  • Emotional trauma
  • Behavioral changes and problems
  • Seizures, fatigue, and spatial impairment

If someone you love has suffered a traumatic brain injury, contact our Texas brain injury lawyers today. Our attorneys can help you understand your legal rights.

How Long Does it Take to Recover From a Traumatic Brain Injury?

Unfortunately, traumatic brain injuries often require months or years to fully heal, during which time a victim may struggle with many activities they used to take for granted. In some cases, the effects of a brain injury are permanent. The patient can make progress with time and treatment, but they may not be able to make a full recovery.

Common Causes of Spinal Cord Injury

Spinal cord injuries, like traumatic brain injuries, are often caused by serious auto accidents and slip-and-fall accidents, and they may result in paralysis extending from the point of impact. Spinal cord injuries can also result in lifelong physical, emotional, and financial complications that can further damage the well-being of victims and their families.

Spinal cord injury victims with partial or full paralysis may require special wheelchairs and specifically designed vehicles and residences to accommodate their needs. They may also require regular physical therapy and even full-time medical care from a nurse or assisted living facility. Living with a spinal cord injury is devastating enough, but the astronomical financial costs can push a victim and their families into a serious economic crisis. Attorney James Bettersworth wants to make sure this does not happen to you or your family.

How Do You Calculate All the Costs Associated With a Spinal Cord Injury?

Because a spinal cord injury is likely to have lifelong costs in addition to those already incurred when receiving emergency medical treatment and addressing other related issues, it can be difficult to estimate how much compensation a plaintiff will need. We have considerable experience representing personal injury victims, and we work diligently to anticipate and calculate all likely expenses. We also work to maximize noneconomic damages like pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, and other ways a victim and their family have been affected.
