Winning a Traumatic Brain Injury Case
Someone is permanently disabled due to a TBI every 80 minutes in Texas. Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can happen any time your head is violently shaken, hit, or jostled. While car accidents are one of the most common reasons for TBI in San Antonio, they can also occur when someone falls, is violently attacked, or during another traumatic event.
Regardless of the cause, a TBI can change your life forever – and you may underestimate your damages unless you have a skilled lawyer by your side.

Understanding Brain Injury Cases
What Are Traumatic Brain Injuries and How do They Happen?
Traumatic brain injuries occur when your head is subjected to acceleration, deceleration, blast forces, and direct impacts. If you suffer a skull fracture, debris can pierce your brain’s delicate anatomy. In a closed head injury, your brain’s tissues, blood vessels, and nerves can tear, rip, and stretch, causing both temporary and permanent damage. They are serious injuries that often require immediate medical care, intense rehabilitation, and emotional support.
Common causes of TBIs include:
- Car crashes and truck wrecks
- Motorcycle accidents
- Bicycle crashes
- Car-pedestrian collisions
- Slip and falls
- Other serious accidents and traumatic incidents

Immediately after a collision or fall, you may not exhibit visible signs of a brain injury. You may also assume that your headache and the ringing in your ears will go away over time. Unfortunately, this may not happen – many TBI survivors’ symptoms worsen over time.
To protect yourself, it’s best to discuss all of your symptoms with your doctors and seek prompt medical attention after a crash or injury. Studies show that the sooner you start treating your TBI, the better. Just as importantly, your medical records, test results, and treatment plan will help your personal injury lawyers understand the scope of your damages.
Signs and Symptoms: How TBIs Can Affect Your Life
If you suffered a loss of consciousness during an incident, there’s a good chance you have a TBI. However, some people with brain injuries never fully lose consciousness. Instead, they feel woozy, light-headed, or mentally clouded afterward.
Other symptoms associated with traumatic brain injuries include:
- Frequent and severe headaches
- Sensory problems, including blurred vision, loss of taste, and ringing ears
- Behavioral and personality changes, such as mood swings, increased aggression, depression, and anxiety
- Memory loss
- Difficulty concentrating, completing tasks, or reading
- Fatigue and disturbed sleep
- Nausea and vomiting
- Dizziness and problems with balance
Even a mild TBI, such as a concussion, can significantly change your life. However, moderate and severe TBIs can result in death, paralysis, and permanent brain damage.
Insurance companies will often claim that a victim did not suffer a TBI from the crash or suffered only a “minor” TBI in order to minimize the amount they have to pay. At Crosley Law, we fight back and demand fair compensation for accident victims, often using state-of-the-art techniques and scientific research. Our brain injury attorneys can help you and your loved ones understand the real impact and costs associated with a TBI.
