Recovering From Catastrophic Injury
When a serious auto accident changes what your future looks like, you need the experience of an attorney who cares and will fight for your interests.
Robert Avera, who founded the Avera Law Firm, P.L.L.C., understands the challenges ahead. When he was 20, he suffered a serious head injury and went through a hard-fought recovery process. This insight goes into his zealous representation throughout your case. Here are some of the types of serious injuries we have handled:
Traumatic Brain Injuries
For a head injury to have occurred, there does not need to be any visible wound to the head after an accident. While open head wounds are obviously serious, closed head injuries can be just as severe, if not more serious.
A traumatic brain injury (TBI), such as a concussion, can have daily, negative impacts on a victim’s life and need extensive medical care. Headaches, dizziness, memory issues and behavioral changes are all signs that a TBI has occurred and needs to be treated by a doctor.
Spinal Cord Injuries And Paralysis
Any impact that an Austin area accident has on your spinal cord can lead to physical limitations, nerve damage and paralysis. Whether you have been partially paralyzed, fully paralyzed or have suffered other spinal cord injuries, it is important that your condition is fully evaluated and assessed by a doctor. Many people who suffer a spinal cord injury become disabled and need accommodations for them to live their lives as normally as possible.
Other Serious Injuries
In addition to brain injuries and spinal cord injuries, we also handle a wide variety of other severe injuries that may stem from an accident, including:
- Burns, scarring and disfigurement
- Broken bones and crush injuries
- Severe lacerations and abrasions
We also handle wrongful death cases for those who have lost a loved one in a fatal accident.
