What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
Brain injuries fall into two categories: traumatic and non-traumatic. Traumatic brain injuries are those that are caused by some physical force being exerted against the brain. A car accident-related brain injury is considered a traumatic brain injury. Non-traumatic brain injuries are those that are the result of damage caused on the cellular level. For example, brain damage caused by a lack of oxygen is a non-traumatic brain injury.
Traumatic brain injuries are prevalent in the United States. Approximately 1.7 million people suffer a traumatic brain injury every year in the U.S. And 50 to 70 percent of all traumatic brain injuries are the result of a motor vehicle collision. According to the Centers for Disease Control, more than 61,000 people die each year as a result of traumatic brain injuries. Many of these cases involved traumatic brain injuries that were the result of a car accident.
Baytown Work Injury Claims Against a Negligent Employer
Head injuries are some of the most concerning of all accident-related injuries because the severity of the damage to the brain may not be readily apparent in the immediate aftermath of the crash. Of course, sometimes, it is clear that you suffered a head injury after an accident, for example, if your head collided with the steering wheel or a window and you lost consciousness. However, just because severe symptoms are not present does not mean that there is not long-term damage.
It is imperative that anyone involved in an accident gets checked out by a doctor to rule out the possibility of brain damage. Some of the signs of head and brain injuries after a car accident include:
- Agitation or combativeness
- Behavioral changes
- Blurred vision
- Difficulty waking up
- Loss of coordination
- Memory impairment
- Ringing in the ears
- Slurred speech
- Weakness in the arms and legs
While the severity of a head injury can vary significantly, these injuries can be life-changing. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you should immediately consult a doctor to determine the extent of the damage. It is also crucial that you contact an experienced Baytown personal injury lawyer to learn more about how you can pursue a claim for compensation against the party or parties responsible for your injuries.

Damages Available to Baytown Head Injury Victims
Texas law allows Baytown car accident victims to obtain compensation against the driver who caused their injuries. There are two types of actual or “compensatory” damages: economic and non-economic.
Economic damages are meant to compensate you for your actual out-of-pocket losses. Actual damages can often be determined by presenting receipts, medical bills or through the testimony of an expert witness. Examples of economic damages include the following:
- Medical expenses in the past and future, and
- Loss of earning capacity in the past and future.
Non-economic damages are more subjective in nature and compensate you for the emotional and physical toll the accident took on your life. Examples of non-economic damages include the following:
- Physical pain in the past and future
- Mental anguish in the past and future
- Physical impairment in the past and future
An experienced Baytown car accident lawyer can help you bring an effective claim. An attorney can also identify the full extent of your damages, so you do not risk accepting an insufficient settlement offer from the insurance company.

I was fortunate to have him on my team and recommend him highly.
Mario de la Garza is a good lawyer. He secured insurance reimbursement for a personal injury that has taken 2.5 years settle. He was compassionate and patient and provided good counsel when solutions appeared non- existent. He was tenacious with medical providers, coordinated payments on a timely basis and worked well with insurance companies. I was fortunate to have him on my team and recommend him highly. - HP

I would definitely use Mario again.
The one thing that made me at ease with him was that when I would text him, I would get a response every time within 10 minutes or less. There was always an answer from him every time I had a question. He was always on time or a few minutes early when we had to meet up for things pertaining to my case. He would even work & reach out to me about my case on Saturdays & Sundays (7 days a week). I would definitely use Mario again if needed and would highly recommend him to someone else needing an attorney. - Robert C.

Our case pertained to an auto-pedestrian collision involving a commercial vehicle that resulted in catastrophic injuries to my brother. Unfortunately, and ultimately these injuries resulted in his wrongful death due to this hit and run in the Houston area. On behalf of my family, we are extremely grateful to The de la Garza Law Group for all their legal assistance. Mario de la Garza personally assisted in all legal matters pertaining to/and getting settlements for all medical bills and restitution for the family until the matter was concluded. We highly recommend this firm.

It’s like a breath of fresh air having someone like Mario fight for you.
I have been a client of Mr. De la Garza two times now where he shows professionalism and honesty and a definite care for the people he represents. I got in a car accident in February and it caused such a hardship coming close to an end. It’s like a breath of fresh air having someone like Mario not only represent you but fight for you. I hope not to have any more accidents but if I did I will look forward to working with him again! – Ashley V.
