If you’ve suffered a traumatic brain injury, you may be entitled to financial recovery that could help pay for any cost incurred due to the injury. You could be entitled to seek damages for your medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering, and more.
A Houston traumatic brain injury lawyer at D. Miller & Associates, PLLC® can investigate what happened, identify the liable party, and hold them accountable in an insurance claim or civil lawsuit. We’ve been representing victims of personal injuries in Texas since 2002. We’ll fight for every dollar of recovery for you.
How We’ll Represent You
The first time you call us, you’ll be able to speak with one of our personal injury team members. They’ll listen to your story and give you an idea of what we may be able to recover in terms of damages.
Once you’re our client, we’ll get started on investigating the circumstances of how your accident occurred. We will determine who is at fault and communicate with their insurance company regarding a fair settlement.
We’ll research precedents for your case and how much similar cases are worth. We’ll negotiate an out-of-court settlement on your behalf or, if needed, argue your case in front of a jury.

Reach out to us with any questions you have, and we’ll be prompt with our response. Our Houston traumatic brain injury team will go over your legal options and ensure you are comfortable with the path forward.
What Our Houston Personal Injury Attorney May Be Able to Recover
Texas follows a traditional at-fault system, meaning it’s the responsibility of the party that caused the injury to pay for the damages. If they’re insured, then it’s their insurance company’s responsibility.
This means if your brain injury was caused when another driver struck your vehicle, it’s that driver’s responsibility to cover the costs of the auto accident. If your brain injury was caused due to a slip and fall in a private business, and we can prove negligence, your attorney will hold the business owner, manager, or liable party accountable.
Types of Recoverable Damages
Your injuries may be classified as economic or non-economic damages caused by the accident.
Economic damages are those tabulated through receipts and bills accrued as a result of the accident that caused your injury. Non-economic damages account for the physical and mental toll on you since the accident and subsequent injury.
Some examples of recoverable damages include:
- Medical expenses (current and future)
- Car repairs
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Reduced earning capacity
- Loss of enjoyment of activities
A traumatic brain injury due to someone else’s negligence can rob you of the life you once knew. Our Houston lawyers will ensure all your damages are accounted for in the demand letter to the at-fault party’s insurance company.
Potential Long-Term Effects of Traumatic Brain Injuries
According to the Mayo Clinic, symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can include:
- Loss of consciousness
- Feeling dazed and confused
- Memory problems
- Difficulty sleeping
- Feeling sleepier than usual
Many of these symptoms can make daily activities and work more difficult. Depending on the requirements of your current job, it may not be safe to return to work if you’re experiencing any of these symptoms.
Traumatic brain injuries can also have long-lasting effects that may require years of counseling and rehabilitation. Seizures, cognitive deficiencies, and mood issues can persist and involve costly treatment on a long-term basis.
We’ll Seek Damages for Long-Term Effects
You could be compensated for any out-of-pocket expenses due to your traumatic brain injury caused by negligence. That includes the physical and mental toll these long-term effects can have.
Our Houston traumatic brain injury lawyer understands your quality of life has been affected and will pursue financial recovery on your behalf to cover the treatment and care you need moving forward.
If these symptoms affect your ability to earn in the future, we would seek to recover damages for that as well.
