Waco Traumatic Brain Injuries Lawyer
Traumatic brain injuries, or TBIs, are catastrophic injuries that can have life-altering consequences for victims. Because of the essential role that the brain plays in virtually every aspect of human life, even seemingly minor injuries such as concussions can have serious long-term effects. In severe cases, TBIs can leave victims with permanent disabilities, unable to work and participate in the hobbies they once enjoyed.
However, when an individual’s traumatic brain injury occurs as the result of a car accident or any other form of trauma caused by someone else, the victim may be in a position to recover compensation for his or her damages. If you have suffered a TBI in Waco, our compassionate traumatic brain injury attorneys at the Law Offices of Vic Feazell, P.C., understand the challenges you may be facing and can help you fight for the full remuneration you need.

DANGERS OF TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURIES
Traumatic brain injuries can happen in a variety of accidents, but no matter the cause, victims can suffer devastating damages with long-lasting repercussions. Rather than facing the consequences on your own, our dedicated attorneys of the Law Offices of Vic Feazell, P.C., can help you seek compensation for the following effects of TBIs:
- Brain damage
- Memory loss
Filing a personal injury claim for compensation if you're suffering from a traumatic brain injury can help you cover the costs of medical bills, rehabilitative therapy costs, loss of wages, and other damages.
What Accidents Cause TBIs?
Virtually any kind of accident can cause a traumatic brain injury when their heads are exposed to jolts, bumps, and penetration by objects. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 2.87 million cases of TBIs were reported in 2014. The leading causes of TBIs and related deaths, however, are motor vehicle accidents and falls.
Symptoms of a Brain Injury
Determining you have a brain injury isn’t always obvious. Some people initially feel fine in the hours and days after an accident, only for symptoms to develop over time as their condition worsens. It’s important to know the signs of a possible brain injury so you can seek medical attention the moment you experience symptoms. The longer a brain injury is left untreated, the worse it can become, resulting in severe injuries and even death in extreme cases.
Symptoms of brain injuries include:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Blurred vision or loss of vision
- Poor concentration
- Personality changes
- Changes in appetite
After your accident, it’s in your best interest to be checked out by a medical professional, even if you don’t notice any immediate injuries. Only a doctor can diagnose you and may be able to detect an underlying brain injury.
