Suffering from a Traumatic Brain Injury?
Our Dallas Personal Injury Attorneys Can Protect Your Rights
A Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) occurs when the head receives a blow that
bounces the brain against the interior surface of the skull. Traumatic
brain injuries can occur in
work accidents, military combat, or sports activities. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control
estimate that 1.7 million people receive these types of injuries each
year. This number indicates that a traumatic brain injury is a common
occurrence that may require the services of a personal injury attorney
law firm like Uvalle Law Firm, PLLC to protect the interests of the injured party.

Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries
TBI can occur when the head receives a sharp blow or penetrating injury.
When a blow occurs, this soft tissue of the brain moves from side-to-side,
sometimes rebounding quickly against the skull's interior. This action
can cause bruising of the brain tissue, even when the skull shows no open
wound. This effect may be either minor or severe. Not all head injuries
cause a traumatic brain injury. Because the evidence of an injury may
not be visible to the naked eye, careful medical supervision is recommended
to determine if the brain has been affected. Traumatic brain injuries
can be severe enough to cause disability or even death in some cases.
TBI can cause long-lasting effects that impact an individual's ability
to work and quality of life, such as:
- Brain damage
- Memory problems
- Cognitive issues
- Speech problems
- Gait problems
- Emotional problems
