Why Traumatic Brain Injuries Become a Financial Nightmare
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the worst kinds of trauma that a person can sustain. It is common for people with this type of head injury to suffer from permanent brain damage, physical limitations, and even experience a personality transformation.
These severe cognitive and physical injuries can quickly translate into expensive medical care. You will have to pay these bills yourself unless you are able to prove to the insurance company that it was not your fault.
As injury attorneys, we have heard many stories about financial pressures and even bankruptcy.
It is our goal to help you recover damages from the liable party. We help you pursue recovery on a contingency basis and will give you a case evaluation for free.

Common Causes of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
Traumatic brain injuries occur with a blow or jolt to the brain. This disrupts normal brain activity and can lead to life-threatening medical conditions such as paralysis, coma, or vegetative state.
According to the Mayo Clinic, the most common causes of traumatic brain injury are:
- Traffic accidents
- Violent acts
- Falling objects on the head
- Military combat or explosive blasts
Traumatic brain injuries in infants are usually caused by a fall or shaking the baby. This is known as shaken baby syndrome and is a form of child abuse. If you suspect that a TBI in a baby was caused by violent shaking, take immediate action.
Our Brain Injury Attorneys Uncover the Liable Parties
A lawyer with D. Miller & Associates, PLLC will examine the circumstances, timeline, and involved parties that led to you or your loved one suffering this injury.
We can use our resources to investigate your personal injury case and uncover evidence that might include:
- Police reports
- Witness statements
- Photos or videos of the incident or accident site
- Input from your doctor on the extent and severity of the injury and your prognosis
We also review the defendant’s (other parties) history for prior complaints, similar incidents, drug or alcohol test results, and other information relevant to building your case. For example, if you or your loved one was injured in a truck accident, we will examine the driver’s safety and training record.
You could be entitled to recovery if we can prove that another party is responsible. Contact a personal injury lawyer today for a free case evaluation at (713) 850-8600.

Frequently Recovered Damages for a Personal Injury Case
Traumatic brain injuries range from mild, also known as a concussion, to life-threatening. Doctors may need to perform emergency brain surgery if there is swelling or bleeding on the brain. They may also have to remove broken pieces of the skull or the object that permeated the skull, such as a bullet.
Many traumatic brain injury patients need extensive rehabilitation and therapy. Some may have to relearn how to walk, talk, and perform daily living activities.
An injury lawyer with our law firm will assess your brain injuries to determine what compensatory damages to pursue.
These damages might include:
- Emergency care

Support for Traumatic Brain Injury Patients and Caregivers
Both the person who suffered a brain injury and his or her family members or caregivers will need support to deal with this catastrophic event.
The Mayo Clinic has a list of suggestions for patients and caregivers that include:
- Ask your healthcare provider for a list of traumatic brain injury support groups so that you may find encouragement and coping skills from others in similar situations.
- Take recovery at your own pace and expect that progress may be slow.
- Keep a calendar or journal to help you remember doctor appointments and other important events.
- Be consistent in your daily routine to help the patient build confidence and to reduce stress on caregivers.
There also may be online support groups if traveling is difficult for you.
