Galveston and Friendswood Brain Injury Lawyer
A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is perhaps the most devastating and life-altering injury a person can endure. Often caused by extreme head trauma following an accident, a traumatic brain injury alters a victim's memory and personality traits. It can also significantly impact a person's capability to be employed or to perform activities of daily living.
Offering Legal Advocacy for TBI Victims and Their Families
For family members, the diagnosis of a traumatic brain injury can be a hard pill to swallow. Your loved one is no longer the person he or she once was. The injured person's newly acquired needs can be very difficult to cope with, physically, emotionally and financially. Securing the assistance of a personal injury lawyer that has not only a strong understanding of the law and your legal options, but also a high level of patience and compassion can help to ease some of your worries about what the future may hold.
At the APFFEL LAW FIRM in League City, we represent families throughout Harris and Galveston counties that are learning to adapt to life with a traumatic brain injury victim. In our more than 25 years of experience, we have come to recognize that most families feel as though their lives have been turned upside down since the car, motorcycle or other type of accident that injured their loved one. Our lead attorney E. A. "Trey" Apffel III takes the time to carefully explain your options, helping you to make informed decisions about taking legal action against liable parties.

Understanding the Long-Term Impact
In many cases, a traumatic brain injury goes undiagnosed for days or weeks after an accident. Typically, family and close friends start to notice changes in a victim's personality, memory or balance. Once medical professionals confirm the diagnosis, a plan must be put in place to safeguard the victim's well-being.
The costs associated with a traumatic brain injury can quickly become overwhelming. Your loved one will most likely need on-going medical care, various types of therapy and possibly long-term personal care. The typical Texas family cannot handle these costs alone. If your loved one's traumatic brain injury was the result of an accident, holding the responsible party financially accountable may be your best option for allowing your loved one to continue to live a life of dignity.
Determining the True Cost of a Brain Injury
In cases involving a catastrophic injury, we often rely on industry experts to accurately calculate the "true cost" of the injury and its effect on a person's life. When needed, our law firm consults with expert medical professionals, vocational rehabilitation specialists and life-care planners to help determine the amount of financial compensation you may be able to recover in a lawsuit.
