Personal injury lawyers in Houston provide insight on what to do after suffering a serious injury

HOUSTON, Jan. 15, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Houston personal injury attorneys Eric Pines and Stephen Goldenzweig of Pines & Goldenzweig, PLLC have assisted many clients with traumatic brain injuries in Houston. When a person receives a blow to the head or a jolt to the body, they may suffer from a traumatic brain injury afterwards. These can range from mild to severe, either impacting brain cells temporarily until the injury heals, or causing bruising, tearing, bleeding, and permanent physical damage to the brain with long-term health implications.

The first priority when a traumatic brain injury occurs is to get all necessary medical care. The recovery from this type of injury can be a long one and it's critical for patients to line up all the support they need, ranging from physicians who specialize in the treatment of brain injuries, to home healthcare, physical and occupational therapy, and counseling to help victims cope with the dramatic changes to their lives.

When a traumatic brain injury is the result of another party's negligence, victims should seek a skilled personal injury attorney with experience handling TBI lawsuits. Eric Pines and Stephen Goldenzweig offer the following tips for anyone who has suffered a brain injury caused by someone else:

If a traumatic brain injury was the result of an assault or another criminal act, the victim should file a police report. This not only helps strengthen their case should they decide to file a lawsuit, it also helps protect the safety of others in the community. Victims should keep all of the documentation they have about the injury. Medical records, police reports, proof of the time needed off of work, and anything else that will help make a victim's case should be kept in a folder for easy access. Pines and Goldenzweig also recommend that victims keep a journal where they document the impact the injury has on their day-to-day lives. It can be difficult to come up with those granular details when sitting in an attorney's office or in a courtroom, particularly if a person's memory has been impacted by the injury. Finally, victims of traumatic brain injury should find a competent personal injury attorney with a proven track record of winning these cases.

A personal injury attorney will not only assist brain injury victims in proving the fault of the other party involved, but they will also help them identify the damages suffered and calculate a monetary amount for compensation.
