Traumatic Brain Injuries in San Antonio

Skip Ahead
Table of Contents

The Texas division of the Brain Injury Association of America reports that 150,000 Texans sustain a TBI (traumatic brain injury) each year, while 381,000 live with a TBI-related disability.

These numbers mean Texas is ranked second as having the highest number of residents with TBIs in the United States.

While state and local officials attempt to raise awareness about these injuries and the devastating impact they can have, the numbers show no signs of slowing down.

With this in mind, you must learn how to protect yourself and your loved ones.

If you are involved in a situation where another person’s negligence caused your TBI, we can help. At Patterson Law Group, our San Antonio personal injury attorneys understand how these incidents can impact your life now and in the future. 

Understanding the “Silent” Epidemic

Brain injuries are sometimes called the “silent” epidemic. This is because the symptoms are seen in several illnesses and diseases. Also, injuries are often undetectable when modern testing tools, such as CT scans and MRIs, are used.  

Our law firm has represented hundreds of clients dealing with brain and head injuries and trauma. You can feel confident we will work to help you secure the maximum compensation possible for your damages and injuries. Coming to us also means you gain access to the most advanced medical treatment available.

You never pay for our services upfront. We work on a contingency fee basis, so we don’t get paid unless we help you recover compensation.

If you were involved in a serious accident and started experiencing symptoms related to brain or head injuries, we encourage you to seek medical attention immediately.

TBIs and Other Head Injuries We Handle

The brain injury attorneys in San Antonio at Patterson Law Group understand how to handle brain injury-related claims. We have seen all types of situations, including concussions that led to long-term dizziness, life-limiting TBIs, and head injuries.  

If you or someone in your family has sustained one of the following head injuries, contact our office to learn about your legal rights and options.

  • Open head injury: Includes injuries with an open wound that breaks the skull.
  • Closed head injury: Includes injuries that do not break the skull.
  • Hemorrhage: Uncontrollable bleeding from the brain or head.
  • Hematoma: Blood collects outside a blood vessel caused by a damaged artery or vein.
  • Subdural hematoma: Head injury that causes blood to collect between the brain and skull.
  • Anoxic brain injuries: Caused by a complete lack of oxygen to the brain.
  • Hypoxic brain injuries: Oxygen to the brain is restricted, which causes gradual deterioration.
  • Diffuse axonal injury: Involves damage to the brain cells but no bleeding. It occurs when the brain moves quickly inside the skull when an injury occurs and causes the victim to become unconscious. It may also lead to comas.
  • Concussion: Considered a mild traumatic brain injury, a concussion occurs when the brain hits the side of the skull.

There are other types of brain injuries, too. If you are dealing with a different TBI, we can help. The first step is to contact our office to schedule a free, no-risk consultation with our San Antonio brain injury attorney. 

How Do Traumatic Brain Injuries Occur in San Antonio?

When a traumatic brain injury occurs, it means the victim’s head experienced a violent and sudden jolt or blow. The injury occurs because the delicate brain collides with the skull. This can cause damaged brain cells, bleeding, and bruising.

Sometimes, depending on the severity of the situation, the damage may be permanent.

Because the brain is extremely delicate, several accidents may lead to a TBI. These include:

  • Construction accidents
  • Slip and fall incidents
  • Commercial truck accidents
  • Car accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Bicycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Accidents caused by a defective product

Unfortunately, traumatic brain injuries are common. This means that if you are involved in an accident, you may experience a TBI. Contact us to learn more about your rights and how we can help protect them. 

Signs and Symptoms of a TBI

It is not always clear whether you have experienced a TBI after an accident. Our attorneys have seen cases where it took days or longer for signs and symptoms of the injury to appear. We encourage anyone involved in an accident to seek medical treatment immediately.  

Beyond seeking medical treatment, there are a few signs that indicate a TBI, which include:

  • Feeling confused or dizzy
  • Lose of consciousness (may last a few seconds or a few hours)
  • Persistent headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Feeling nausea or vomiting
  • Blurry vision
  • Issues with concentrating and communicating
  • Lack of coordination and balance; muscle weakness
  • Feeling irritable or agitated
  • Depression
  • Convulsions
  • Clear fluid from the nose or ears

You may have sustained TBI if you have just one symptom or several. Also, the severity can vary based on how much damage occurred.

At Patterson Law Group, we understand the impact and uncertainty of these accidents and injuries. We are here to help you hold the responsible party accountable and recover the compensation you are entitled to.

How To File a San Antonio Brain Injury Claim

If you were involved in an accident that caused brain trauma because of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.

Our brain injury lawyer in San Antonio can help you understand your rights and pursue the compensation you deserve.

Some of the ways we can help with your case include:

  • Determine liability in the accident
  • Collect evidence related to the accident and your injury
  • Collect testimony from witnesses
  • Negotiate with the insurance company
  • Help you seek justice

It is important to seek our legal representation as soon as you can after an accident. Texas has a two-year statute of limitation for personal injury claims. There are exceptions to this law, which may increase or decrease the amount of time you have to file.
