Understanding Brain Injury Cases
How Do Car Crashes Cause Traumatic Brain Injuries?
A car wreck involves a lot of forces. Your vehicle may come to an abrupt stop, or it may careen across the road out of control. While your body should be restrained by a seat belt, your brain doesn’t have a similar safety device.
When something strikes or violently shakes your head, you may rip, tear, and stretch your brain’s sensitive blood vessels, nerves, and other tissues. This can lead to swelling, bruising, bleeding, and nerve damage that limits your brain’s ability to transmit messages to the rest of your body.
Sometimes, brain injuries involve penetration, either by debris, a bullet, or another projectile. However, the majority of TBIs are closed head injuries, where your brain strikes the uneven surface of your skull.

What Other Situations Can Cause a TBI?
While car wrecks are some of the most common causes of TBIs, people in New Braunfels also experience brain injuries due to falls, explosions, direct impacts, violence, and other situations where their heads are hit, shaken, or subjected to forces of acceleration and deceleration.
Our TBI injury team has handled a wide variety of brain injury claims, including those involving pedestrians, motorcyclists, motorists, children at trampoline parks, and victims of assault.
TBIs Can Be Debilitating: Watch Out for These Signs and Symptoms
If you or a loved one are experiencing a combination of the following symptoms after a traumatic event, you may want to speak to your doctor about the possibility of a brain injury.
- Severe and lasting headaches
- Fatigue or problems sleeping
- Balance issues and dizziness
- Memory loss
- Difficulty concentrating, remembering, or reading
- Personality and mood changes
- Depression and anxiety
- Blurry or double vision
- Changes to your senses of taste or smell
- Ringing ears
- Other sensory changes
While these initial symptoms may not be permanent or debilitating, they are some of the first signs of a traumatic brain injury. You may also experience other symptoms.
Since TBIs can occur even if the head does not hit an object, there may not be any visible sign of a brain injury. Victims and even medical personnel sometimes overlook TBIs, since it can take days and even weeks to develop certain symptoms.
However, prompt treatment of brain injuries can help reduce their impact. You should always seek medical treatment immediately after a car crash or other traumatic event and discuss the possibility of a brain injury with your doctor.
The insurance company may also insist that your TBI is minor and you don’t deserve compensation. In these cases, it’s best to get a second opinion from an experienced TBI lawyer. At Crosley Law, we listen to our clients and carefully investigate their claims, helping them get the compensation they deserve.
