Damages Recoverable Based on a Plano Head and Brain Injury
If another party causes someone to suffer injuries and other harm, the victim and their family should not have to deal with the financial consequences of that. Instead, the at-fault party should shoulder the responsibility.
Our team seeks fair and appropriate compensation for our clients based on the accident-related expenses and losses they incur. In a traumatic brain injury case, this often includes:
- Emergency medical transportation and assessment
- Medical treatment, hospitalization, and related expenses
- Rehabilitation and therapy
- Future medical care and support needs
- Lost income
- Reduced earning capacity
- Property damages
- Related expenses with receipts
- Pain and suffering damages
- Other intangible losses
At Underwood Law Office, we know how to value these cases and go after the fair and just payout families need to manage their financial future and ensure their loved one gets the care, support, and ongoing rehabilitation they may need. Not only do we gather evidence to calculate the value of their current losses and expenses, but we work with experts to understand their prognosis and future costs and value their intangible losses accordingly.
Traumatic Brain Injuries May Be Fatal
Under some circumstances, a victim may pass away from a brain injury or other harm they suffered. When this occurs, they can no longer pursue compensation through a personal injury action. Instead, qualifying family members will need to use a wrongful death action to recover the damages the family endured.
At Underwood Law Office, we represent families navigating this process, handling their claims and lawsuits, and fighting for the justice they deserve.

Proving Your Plano, TX, TBI Injury Case
When a lawyer from Underwood Law Office represents a client in a TBI accident case, we must prove the accused party acted negligently and is, therefore, liable for the injuries sustained. This requires us to have evidence to prove:
- The party owed a certain duty of care to the victim.
- They violated that duty of care.
- Their action or inaction caused the incident.
- Our client suffered a TBI and/or other physical or financial injuries.
Our lawyers understand how costly a traumatic brain injury can be. Even though the severity and lasting effects of these injuries vary widely, it takes the brain a long time to recover. Hospitalization, surgery, inpatient rehabilitation, and convalescence can last a year or even longer for some people.
A severe TBI can also cause lasting physical and psychological changes, which affect every member of the family and causes dramatic changes in relationships and everyday life. We know you are navigating a stressful and difficult time. We are here to help.
Timeline for Suing a Liable Party in a Plano Personal Injury Case
While it often takes weeks or even months to understand the prognosis and necessary rehabilitation following a serious brain injury, you need to act quickly to get started with a civil case against the party who caused that injury. Texas law, found under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, generally only offers two years from the injury date to file a lawsuit.
While not all cases require filing suit and going to trial, it is important that you retain the right to do so if it becomes necessary. So ensuring you meet this deadline is paramount. The sooner you connect with us, the more evidence that may be available to support your claim, as well. We encourage you to reach out as soon as your injuries are stable or for a family member to contact us early on after an injury.
