Dallas-Fort Worth Brain Injury Lawyer

The Dallas brain injury lawyers of Tate Law Offices, P.C., have a long history of helping accident victims and their families in Dallas and throughout Texas to deal with the consequences of traumatic brain injury (TBI).

This injury occurs when brain tissue is damaged by a hard blow to the head or by a jolt that causes the brain to suddenly move back-and-forth or side-to-side, striking the skull.

As our law firm has seen, TBI arises most commonly in the car and other motor vehicle accidents. However, brain injuries also frequently result from falls, workplace accidents, or incidents involving sports or recreation activities.

Why Should You Get Help from a Lawyer After Suffering Traumatic Brain Injury?

When you contact brain injury lawyers at Tate Law Offices, P.C., you will receive assistance from a legal team that knows how to thoroughly investigate a traumatic brain injury case and pursue a full, fair, and timely financial recovery.

Because TBI can occur in many different situations, we believe it will help you to work with a lawyer who has experience in handling a wide range of accident cases, including:

  • Car, truck, and motorcycle accidents – An auto accident victim may suffer TBI from his or her head striking the dashboard or windshield. Additionally, a motorcyclist or bicyclist may experience significant brain injury despite wearing a helmet. Often, TBI results from the brain moving within the skull upon impact in a crash.
  • Construction accidents – Construction workers can suffer TBI in falls from roofs, scaffolds, and ladders, regardless of whether they are wearing protective headgear. They may also suffer TBI from being struck by falling objects such as tools, wood, bricks, and other building materials.
  • Slip and falls – Visitors to private, commercial, or public properties may suffer TBI in falls that are caused by dangerous conditions on the premises, including slick floors, poor lighting, uneven pavement, broken railings, and concealed holes.
  • Falls in nursing homes – Unfortunately, due to the negligence of a nursing home’s staff, an elderly resident may suffer TBI in a fall. Medication errors and lack of a proper diet can cause residents to fall due to dizziness. A nursing home may also fail to provide a resident with adequate foot-ware or walking devices, exposing them to the risk of a fall.
  • Sports- and recreation-related accidents – In contact sports like football and soccer, the failure of coaches and trainers to properly manage a brain injury such as a concussion may cause a young person to suffer serious harm.

Our law firm also has a keen understanding of the consequences of TBI, including:

  • Medical treatment – A TBI victim may need surgery, hospitalization in an intensive care unit and/or special brain injury rehabilitation unit, ongoing outpatient therapy, medication, and around-the-clock care from a family member or home health aide.
  • Income – A person who has suffered TBI may be unable to work for a prolonged period as he or she recovers. In many cases, the victim may never return to work or may be able to work only at a job that pays much less than what he or she earned before.
  • Family members – The injury victim is not the only one who suffers. Family members may lose the care and companionship of a loved one who has TBI. They may also be burdened with attending to the victim’s everyday needs.
