Cypress Brain Injury Attorneys

The consequences of suffering a brain injury can be devastating. Many victims experience symptoms that may affect their ability to perform even the most basic tasks such as walking, eating or dressing. These types of traumatic and catastrophic injuries can place considerable emotional stress and financial burdens on the victim and his or her family. Anyone who has suffered a head injury or who has a family member who has suffered a brain injury would be well advised to discuss his or her situation with an experienced Cypress brain injury lawyer. Financial compensation may be available for their considerable losses.

Brain Injury Statistics

First, it is important to understand that you and your family members are not alone. Millions of people in the United States deal with brain injuries everyday. There are numerous local and national groups and organizations that offer support and resources to brain injury victims and their families.

According to The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 1.7 million people sustain a traumatic brain injury each year. TBI is a contributing factor in almost a third of all injury-related deaths in the United States. About 75 percent of brain injuries suffered each year are concussions or other forms of "mild TBI."

Traumatic Brain Injuries

A TBI can occur as the result of a blow, jolt or a bump to the head. Other TBIs may result from a penetrating head injury. Whatever the cause of the trauma, a TBI is when that trauma disrupts the normal function of the brain. Victims may experience loss of consciousness, amnesia or other immediate symptoms. Individuals who have lost consciousness for a prolonged amount of time have likely suffered more serious brain trauma than someone who was only knocked out for moments. Every brain injury can be unique.

Concussions and Mild TBIs

Whenever a concussion occurs, the way the brain works is disrupted. This type of injury can occur in a Cypress car accident, slip-and-fall accident or an act of violence. It is important to remember that while some concussions are described as "mild," the resulting symptoms can be serious.

Symptoms of concussions typically fall into four categories:

  • Physical: Victims may feel a headache or their vision may become blurry. They may feel dizziness, nausea or fatigue.
  • Thinking ability: Victims of concussions often experience difficulties with thinking clearly. Victims may struggle to focus or remember new information.
  • Sleep: Victims may either sleep more or less than normal.
  • Emotional: Concussion victims often become depressed, more emotional, irritable or anxious.

Severe TBI

Severe brain injuries are a contributing factor in many fatal injuries and permanent disabilities. A severe TBI can result from closed trauma (caused by movements of the brain within the skull) or penetrating injuries (caused by a foreign object entering the skull). Closed trauma typically occurs as the result of car accidents, falls or from an object striking the skull. Open trauma injuries may occur due to incidents such as gunshot wounds or as the result of a sharp object striking the skull.

Symptoms of Severe TBI

A non-fatal severe TBI can put victims in a long-lasting coma. Victims will likely require extended hospitalization, surgery and rehabilitation. According to the CDC, 43 percent of all severe TBI victims remain disabled even one year after the injury.

Symptoms of severe TBI injuries may include:

  • Motor function issues: Weakness, impaired coordination, unbalance
  • Cognitive issues: Memory and concentration
  • Sensation: Hearing, vision, touch and perception
  • Emotion: Depression, aggression, personality changes

Rights of TBI Victims

If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury as the result of of someone else's negligence, you can pursue compensation for your losses.
