Dedicated Legal Advocacy For Brain And Spine Injury Patients
Brain and spine injuries are among the most devastating and life-altering injuries a person can suffer. These injuries come with heavy costs — physical, emotional and financial.
If you or someone you love has suffered a brain or spine injury due to someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, you may be entitled to compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain, suffering and more. At MacLean Law Firm, we help individuals and families throughout Texas get the compensation they need and deserve.

The Effects Of Brain And Spine Injuries
For patients and their families to get the compensation they need after a catastrophic injury, it is important to show the full extent of the injury and how it affects the patient’s life, as well as the lives of any family members.
For example, damage to the spinal cord can result in paralysis and permanent disability. Injuries resulting in paraplegia or quadriplegia may be career-ending, and a spinal injury can greatly reduce a person’s ability to enjoy everyday activities — not to mention one’s ability to provide financial support to the family. A spinal injury may require lifelong medical care, as well as long-term use of medical equipment and the ongoing need for personal assistance.
In most cases, traumatic brain injury results from a severe blow to the head. Brain injuries can cause swelling, hemorrhaging and pressure in the skull, which can in turn cause motor-control and cognitive problems such as memory loss, slurred speech, mood swings, depression and chronic headaches. All of these outcomes can greatly reduce a patient’s ability to earn a living.
The prognosis for a brain or spine injury generally depends on the nature of injury, how much damage has been done to the brain or spine, how long the patient may be in a coma, and the patient’s age and overall health.
