A Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyer May Help You Recover Damages
Most people who suffer a traumatic brain injury will need rehabilitation. They may have to relearn how to walk, talk, and perform daily activities.
This kind of long-term treatment is costly. If you suffered a traumatic brain injury from an accident that was not your fault, you have the legal right to pursue recovery.
Unfortunately, it is not enough that you have been injured. An insurance company or the court will need proof that the other party acted negligently and caused your injury. A traumatic brain injury lawyer serving El Paso, TX can investigate for proof of liability and help you recover damages from the liable party.
This proof may include:
- The at-fault party being charged for the accident, such as drunk driving (DWI)
- Photos or videos
- Witness statements
- Police, accident, or workplace reports
A lawyer with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC will help you recover damages on a contingency basis.
What to Do If You or a Loved One Suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury
All bumps, jolts, or trauma to the head should be examined by a physician or other healthcare professional. Many people do not realize that a concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury. However, even a so-called “mild” traumatic brain injury requires prompt medical attention and diagnosis to avoid potentially life-threatening complications.
In our experience as TBI lawyers, many of these injuries occur because of someone’s careless act or failure to act. That is why we suggest that you call D. Miller & Associates, PLLC to find out how we may be able to help you recover damages.
In addition, we also suggest the following:
- Follow your healthcare provider’s instructions, since failure to do so jeopardizes your health and your chance to recover damages.
- Avoid talking to the at-fault party’s lawyer or insurance adjuster until you have consulted an attorney of your choosing.
- Do not allow the insurance adjuster access to your medical records or allow their physician to examine you until you have talked to a lawyer.
- If there were witnesses to the accident, get their names and contact information.
- Avoid posting photos or comments about the accident on social media; again, to avoid jeopardizing potential recovery.
You deserve to know your legal options and to have a strong legal advocate protecting your rights. For a free case evaluation, call (713) 850-8600.

Proving Liability for a Traumatic Brain Injury
