You Deserve Fair Compensation…
Regardless of Your Citizenship or Documentation

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) result from sudden blows, jolts, or penetrations to the head, causing disruption to normal brain function. These injuries often stem from car accidents, workplace incidents, or falls, impacting victims’ cognitive abilities, emotions, and motor skills. TBIs can range from mild concussions to severe brain damage, leading to long-term disabilities and challenges. Paxton Law Firm recognizes the profound impact of TBIs on individuals and families, and we are committed to providing comprehensive legal support to those affected.

At Paxton Law Firm, we believe that every individual, regardless of their citizenship or documentation status, deserves fair compensation for their injuries. Some may fear their immigration status could prevent them from seeking legal recourse, but the truth is that everyone has the same rights under the law. Our team is committed to protecting the rights of all individuals, ensuring that they receive the support and representation they need to pursue the maximum possible compensation for their injuries and losses.

Beware of Insurance Companies After Traumatic Brain Injuries… Even When They Sound Caring or Friendly

After you or a loved one experiences a traumatic brain injury, you can expect a call from an insurance adjuster eager to settle your claim swiftly. During the conversation, they may ask probing questions about your injuries, medical history, and even your daily activities, seemingly out of deep concern for your health. However, they ask these questions, hoping to find loopholes to minimize your compensation. Anything you say can be used against you and twisted to deny you the compensation you need and deserve.

It’s essential to remain cautious and consult with legal experts like Paxton Law Firm before engaging with insurance adjusters. Our team understands the complexities of TBIs and the tactics used by insurance companies to diminish your claim. We’re here to protect your rights and ensure you receive fair compensation for your injuries. Don’t let insurance adjusters fool you—trust in our experienced attorneys to secure the compensation you truly deserve.

Steps to Take Immediately After Traumatic Brain Injuries:

  • Seek medical attention promptly, even if symptoms seem mild, as TBIs can have delayed onset and may worsen over time.
  • Follow the advice of medical professionals and adhere to prescribed treatment plans and rehabilitation programs.
  • Document details of the accident, including date, time, location, and any witnesses present.
  • Keep track of all medical records, including diagnosis, treatment received, and expenses incurred.

Traumatic Brain Injuries FAQs

What should I do if an insurance company offers me a settlement after a traumatic brain injury?

If an insurance company offers you a settlement after a traumatic brain injury, please consult your lawyer before accepting any offers. Insurance companies often take advantage of the initial period of shock immediately after your incident to offer lowball settlements before you have the time to truly consider your options. These lowball offers rarely cover a fraction of the true costs of your injuries. Our attorneys can review the offer, assess its fairness, and negotiate on your behalf to secure a more favorable outcome.

Is there a time limit for filing a traumatic brain injury claim in Texas?

Yes, there is a statute of limitations for filing a traumatic brain injury claim in Texas, which typically ranges from one to two years from the date of the injury or discovery of the injury. It’s essential to act promptly and consult with a lawyer to ensure your legal rights are protected and that you meet all deadlines for filing your claim.
