Train TBI Attorneys

Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) commonly occur in railroad injury cases caused by a sudden blow or jolt to the head disrupting the normal function of the brain. This can result in a range of symptoms, including loss of consciousness, confusion, memory loss, and difficulty with balance and coordination. In railroad injury cases, TBIs can occur as a result of various accidents, including train derailments, collisions, and falls from heights. 

Symptoms of a TBI can appear immediately after an injury or may take several days or weeks to develop. If you have sustained a TBI as a result of a railroad accident, it is vital to seek medical attention immediately and consult with an experienced railroad brain injury attorney in Houston who can help you understand your legal rights and options.

Types of Railroad Brain Injuries

Mild TBIs

Mild brain injuries, commonly known as concussions, are frequent in railroad injury cases. Typically resolving within a few weeks, these injuries may cause symptoms like momentary loss of consciousness, confusion, and memory issues. Despite their transient nature, seeking prompt medical attention is crucial.

Moderate TBIs

Moderate traumatic brain injuries result from more impactful blows to the head and can lead to lasting consequences. Symptoms may include prolonged confusion, heightened memory loss, and challenges with balance. Comprehensive medical care is often necessary for these injuries, emphasizing the importance of immediate attention and legal support.

Severe TBIs

Stemming from significant trauma, severe traumatic brain injuries can inflict permanent damage, requiring long-term medical care. Symptoms may include extended loss of consciousness, profound memory loss, and persistent challenges with coordination. Understanding the severity of railroad injury and seeking experienced legal assistance becomes paramount for victims facing substantial and enduring effects.

Railroad Injury Claims

If you have suffered a traumatic brain injury while working for a railroad company, you may be entitled to compensation. However, it is essential to understand the legal framework governing railroad injury claims before pursuing legal action.

The Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) is the federal law that governs railroad injury claims and compensates workers who are injured on the job. Under FELA, railroad companies are required to provide a safe working environment for their employees. If they fail to do so and an employee is injured, the employee may be entitled to compensation.

FELA claims are different from workers' compensation claims. Workers' compensation is a program run by the state that provides benefits to employees who are injured on the job, regardless of fault. On the other hand, FELA requires proof of negligence on the railroad company's part. Examples of railroad negligence include:

  • Failure to properly maintain equipment
  • Failure to provide proper safety equipment
  • Failure to train employees properly
  • Failure to provide a safe working environment

You may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering if you prove negligence.
