According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), in the most recent reporting year, more than 214,000 individuals in the United States were hospitalized due to traumatic brain injuries.
Traumatic brain injury often results from a blow or jolt to the head, leading to temporary or permanent brain damage. The severity of TBI can range from mild (commonly known as a concussion) to severe, potentially resulting in long-term cognitive, physical, and emotional impairments. However, even a so-called “minor” concussion can still lead to serious impacts and financial losses, making it imperative for accident victims to seek treatment as well as legal recourse after such an injury.
Common Causes of TBI in Personal Injury Cases
Motor vehicle accidents are one of the most common causes of traumatic brain injury and are particularly noteworthy due to their frequency and potential severity. The impact of a vehicle collision can cause the brain to move violently within the skull, leading to TBI. This type of injury can occur in various vehicular accidents, including car crashes, motorcycle accidents, and truck collisions. The force of a car crash can cause the head to strike against objects like the steering wheel or window, or the sudden stop can cause the brain to collide with the skull.
Slips and falls are a significant cause of Traumatic Brain Injury, particularly in environments where safety measures are inadequate. These incidents can occur in various settings, such as workplaces, public spaces, or even private residences. Factors like wet floors, uneven surfaces, poor lighting, or lack of proper signage can contribute to these accidents.
When a person falls, the head can forcefully strike the ground or another hard surface. This impact can cause the brain to move abruptly inside the skull, resulting in bruising, bleeding, or tearing of brain tissue. In some cases, even a fall without a direct head impact can generate enough force to cause a brain injury.
At Lorenz & Lorenz, we bring a comprehensive understanding of traumatic brain injuries to each case. We leverage this understanding to advocate effectively for our clients, ensuring that every aspect of the TBI — from its cause to its long-term effects — is considered in seeking compensation. Our approach is tailored to highlight the specific circumstances of your accident, emphasizing the connection between the incident and the resulting brain injury.
Compensation for TBI Victims
As a TBI victim, you have the right to seek compensation if your injury resulted from someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing. At Lorenz & Lorenz, we understand the multifaceted impact of a TBI and work tirelessly to ensure that all aspects of your injury are accounted for in your claim. We meticulously document the full extent of your losses, from medical bills and lost income to the more intangible impacts on your life and well-being.
Our assertive negotiation tactics and readiness to proceed to trial if necessary mean that we are always pushing for the maximum compensation you deserve. Some types of compensation we may be able to recover for you include:
Medical Expenses: This includes costs for emergency treatment, hospital stays, surgeries, medications, rehabilitation, and any future medical care related to your TBI.
Lost Income and Earning Capacity: If your injury has impacted your ability to work, you can claim compensation for lost wages and the loss of future earning potential.
Pain and Suffering: TBI often leads to physical pain and suffering, emotional distress, and a decreased quality of life. Compensation for these non-economic damages is crucial.
Long-Term Care and Support: You may need ongoing care and support in cases of severe TBIs. Compensation can cover the costs of long-term treatment, home care, and any necessary modifications to your living environment.
Your journey to recovery after a TBI can be long and challenging, but you don’t have to face it alone. Let us handle the legal complexities while you focus on healing. We are here to be your advocate and guide, ensuring that your rights are protected.
The Need for Comprehensive Legal Representation
Emergency room visits, transportation via ambulance, and diagnostics in a laboratory are just some of the types of care you may require after a traumatic brain injury. However, the fact that traumatic brain injuries cost the healthcare system roughly 2.8 billion dollars every year demonstrates that these expenses are just the tip of the iceberg for many accident victims.
Understanding the extensive nature of these costs is vital in any TBI case. At Lorenz & Lorenz, we commit to ensuring that these factors are fully considered when seeking compensation for our clients. We strive to secure a settlement or verdict that covers immediate medical expenses and provides for the long-term needs and challenges that may arise from a TBI.
You Don’t Have to Face Your Injury Alone

The Statute of Limitations for TBI Claims in Texas
When dealing with the consequences of a traumatic brain injury, time is a critical factor, not just for medical recovery but also for legal action. At Lorenz & Lorenz, we emphasize the importance of understanding and adhering to the statute of limitations in Texas for TBI claims.
In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases, including those involving TBI, is generally two years from the date of the injury. This means you have two years to file a lawsuit against the parties responsible for your injury. Failing to take legal action within this timeframe can result in the loss of your right to seek compensation. In certain circumstances, there may be exceptions to the standard statute of limitations. For example, if the TBI victim is a minor or if the injury was not immediately discoverable. Our legal team will assess your situation to determine the exact timeframe for your case.
At Lorenz & Lorenz, we understand the urgency of these cases. From the moment you engage our services, we move swiftly to gather evidence, build your case, and file necessary legal documents. Our proactive approach is designed to ensure that your case is initiated well within the legal time limits.
