Beach Party Turns Ugly and Teen Suffers Traumatic Brain Injury Reports Austin Personal Injury Lawyer

Austin, TX (Law Firm Newswire) December 29, 2011 – Sustaining a brain injury may happen just about any time. It is not just a phenomenon related to sports.

“This reported case is disturbing for the amount of gratuitous violence involved,” remarked Brooks Schuelke, an Austin personal injury lawyer with Perlmutter & Schuelke, L.L.P. “The 15-year-old boy involved got into a fight with a stranger after a beach party, was punched in the head, and wound up being treated in a neurological center for a brain injury. It was certainly not what the young boy expected from simply going to a party with his friends.”

It appears that the attacker may have been at the same party as the victim and the pair got into a fight shortly after some of the guests at the bash started to disperse and head home. The boy and three of his pals were walking up one side of a street, when the man who punched him in the head called out some names to them from across the street. The boy responded by crossing the street to speak to the individual and a fight ensued.

The police had a description of the attacker, but did not have success in tracking him down, despite being out all night knocking on doors to find eye witnesses. They are hoping that someone from the beach party may know the man based on his description. Forensic evidence collected at the scene of the attack did not reveal much of anything to move forward with to identify the attacker.

“Would the 15-year-old boy have a personal injury case? Yes, he would. His attacker delivered a devastating blow to his head that put the boy in hospital, under the care of neurosurgeons to help him deal with the traumatic brain injury,” stated Schuelke. “Depending on how he recovers, the boy may need medical care for the rest of his life. While the attacker may think it was ‘just a fight and no big deal,’ the reality of the situation is that he could face criminal charges and a civil personal injury lawsuit. Someone has to be responsible for the injuries and the medical bills.”

For injuries sustained in an accident that are someone else’s fault, make a call to an experienced Austin personal injury attorney. The recovery of medical expenses may rest on successfully having the case taken to settlement or through the courts. With the assistance of a skilled Austin personal injury attorney, justice will be done.
