Every brain injury case brought before a Texas court must have a compensable injury. Compensable injuries are established by medical evidence supported by objective findings. Objectively findings are those that cannot come under the voluntary control of the patient. It is important for Texas lawyers working on traumatic brain injury (TBI) cases to understand that because TBI injuries cause brain dysfunctions which may not show up on standard MRI or CAT scans, the attorney must rely on expert physicians.
Understanding the complexities of a traumatic brain injury can be done with the help of a doctor. It is important to have clients that may have a TBI to see a physician for evaluation or treatment. Attorneys too often face the difficulties related to clients’ resistance to seek medical help. Their unwillingness to cooperate can prevent the ability to obtain objective findings. Counsel should be persistent in encouraging clients to find out whether they truly have a head injury. Health comes first. Where would we be without our health? Making sure that TBI clients continue and maintain their treatment will give them the best long-term improvement.
