Brain Injury Attorney in The Woodlands
Fighting for Justice for TBI Victims
A brain injury is one of the most serious injuries that a person can face. With the potential to result in severe cognitive, emotional, and physical consequences, an injury to the brain can be life-altering not only for the victim but his or her family as well. The cost of medical and home care for a person with a brain injury can be very high, and if the injured person was the one responsible for paying the bills, their loss of earning capacity can be deeply felt.
If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury that resulted from the negligent actions of another person, you should immediately seek legal help. You may be entitled to compensation for your losses, including the cost of your medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering, and more. Holladay Law Firm, PLLC is prepared to assess your case for free to determine whether you are eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit.

What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
Traumatic brain injury, also called TBI, results when a person sustains a trauma to the head that causes damage to the brain. Often, brain injuries are the result of things like car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, construction accidents, workplace accidents, assaults, and sports injuries. The most severe injuries can lead to permanent brain damage or even death.
There are five types of traumatic brain injury:
- Concussion, the most common type of TBI
- Coup-contrecoup, in which the brain strikes the skull on both sides
- Contusion, an area of bruising (bleeding) on the brain
- Diffuse-axonal, in which strong rotational forces cause brain structures to tear
- Penetration, in which the skull and brain is penetrated by a foreign object
When a traumatic brain injury is caused by the reckless or careless actions (or inactions) of another person or entity, that person or entity may be held legally responsible for compensating the victim. For example, if an employer violated workplace safety standards and knowingly placed their employees in danger and an employee suffered a brain injury as a result of a preventable accident, the employer can be held liable. Alternatively, if a reckless driver caused a car collision because they were speeding and making unsafe lane changes, they may be sued for compensation.
