If you suffered a serious head or brain injury on the job, you will almost certainly require legal advice to collect the damages you deserve and need to support yourself and your family. This is especially true in cases of closed-head injury or mild brain trauma, as the symptoms are often subtle and easy to overlook. Contact an experienced Austin brain injury attorney at the law firm of Allison & Ward to learn about your rights and options.
Head & Brain Injuries in Austin, Texas
Whether you suffered your work-related brain injury in a fall at a construction site, a motor vehicle accident, or blunt-force trauma in a warehouse, our Austin head injury attorneys can investigate the facts of your accident while concentrating on getting you the medical treatment you need.
There's no point in being a hero in a brain injury case. If you suffered a concussion on the job and feel up to working after a few days off, you're doing yourself no favors by skipping a thorough medical examination. You're not only exposing yourself to the risk of future symptoms such as dizziness or partial memory loss; you're also throwing away the chance to document your injuries properly from the earliest stages of the case.
Common Brain Injuries in Austin
Our brain injury lawyers in Austin advise and represent injured employees in Texas workers' compensation cases and personal injury lawsuits — whenever we can, we'll handle both cases for you so that you collect the appropriate amount of compensation. We present benefits and damages claims for accidents such as:
- Brain concussion and post-concussion disorder
- All grades of traumatic brain injury: mild, moderate and severe
- Short and long-term coma cases
- Facial injuries involving trauma to the eyes, nose, jaw, teeth, scarring or disfigurement
Especially in the less severe range of brain injury cases, the symptoms can be subjective and open to legitimate debate. It's sometimes difficult to prove complaints of personality change or sensitivity to light or noise, but our familiarity with the challenges of brain injury litigation can help ensure that your claims are properly documented and include all components of your past and future losses.
