Brain Injury and Closed Head Injury
Brain injury can cause so many changes in lifestyle for the victim and his or her family and friends. Physical, cognitive, social, and vocational changes are extremely common. Recovery can be a lifelong process of adjustments and accommodations. Appropriate treatment of a brain injury may be extremely complicated, involving diagnostic testing, drugs, surgery, and rehabilitation. Full treatment including rehabilitation can be extremely expensive and involve a team of medical caregivers. It is not uncommon for an injured individual to see a neurologist, neurosurgeon, psychiatrist, neuropsychiatrist, vocational expert, life-care planner, neuro-psychologist, and physical, occupational and speech therapists.
Securing proper medical care alone can be a full-time pursuit of an injured individual and his or her family and friends. We can work on your behalf to ensure the party responsible for these injuries, or the insurance company covering them, compensates you for all damages. Learn more about our brain injury and closed head injury practice.
Wills & Probate Litigation
When representing probate and trust litigation clients, whether fiduciaries or beneficiaries, we seek a prompt resolution to disputes. Most importantly we seek to protect and advance our client’s interests and rights. The combination of experience and expertise enhances the likelihood of success for our clients.

Bicycling has become an increasingly popular pastime and form of exercise. Traffic laws are in place to minimize the risk of accidents between motorists and bicyclists, but that isn’t always enough. Bicycle accidents often result in severe injury to the rider. With far less physical protection, the bicyclist is typically at much greater risk than the driver of the motor vehicle. If bicyclist is injured due to the negligence of a driver or other individual, they may be entitled to compensation. Learn more about our bicycle accident practice.
Even motorcyclists obeying traffic laws and wearing protective gear are at a huge disadvantage in a collision with a car, truck, van, or other motor vehicle. Injuries often include brain damage, paralysis, back injury, and amputation of limbs; as well as fractures, severe burns, or “road rash.” When these major injuries occur, we consult with medical experts to determine the future — even lifelong — medical needs such as reconstructive surgery, vocational rehabilitation, medical equipment, and medications. We’ll provide you with the best representation to help ensure you get what you are entitled to. Learn more about our motorcycle accidents practice.

Nationwide, there are over 3,500 fatalities and 60,000 injuries each year from passenger vehicle collisions with heavy-duty trucks. Truck accidents are one of the leading causes of death and serious injuries involving vehicles. In many cases, the truck driver is responsible for the accidents that caused the injury. When this is the case, the attorneys at The Sharp Firm can help. Learn more about our truck accidents practice.
The vast majority of interactions with doctors and other medical professionals go very well, and the profession in general is responsible for dramatically improving the quality of life for millions. When a doctor makes a mistake, however, it can cause serious consequences for the patients, which is why there are medical malpractice laws on the books. If you believe a doctor is responsible for missing a diagnosis they should have caught, prescribed the wrong medication, made a mistake in surgery, or had some other serious injury that is causing you or a loved one problems, we are here to help. Learn more about our medical malpractice practice.
Dentists today are responsible for helping to ensure the overall health of people’s teeth, gums, and mouth in general. This can include routine work as well as more complicated things like surgery, tooth extraction, root canals, and much more. If a dentist makes a mistake it can cause serious injury, and serious expenses to repair. Just like medical doctors are responsible for their mistakes, so are dentists. Learn more about our dental malpractice practice.
Construction crews are working around the clock to build or repair buildings, roads, homes, and other things throughout Austin and all of Texas. While they typically complete each job without a problem, occasionally they are responsible for some type of accident that causes serious injury or property damage. Whether you are an employee at a construction company or not, you may be entitled to compensation if you were a victim of a construction accident. We can help. Learn more about our construction accidents practice.
In the state of Texas, employers are not legally required to hold workers’ compensation insurance. While most companies have this type of policy in place, an estimated 100,000 do not. If you work for a company without workers’ compensation insurance and you sustain a serious injury, it is considered a nonsubscriber injury, and you may be entitled to compensation under the law. We can fight for your rights to ensure your expenses are covered, income is replaced, and much more. Learn more about our nonsubscriber injuries practice.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
After a serious accident or injury, some people develop a condition known as complex regional pain syndrome, or CRPS. This condition can be extremely painful, and even debilitating. If you have been diagnosed with CRPS after an accident or injury, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses, lost salary, pain and suffering, and more. Our firm has helped many people with this condition, and we can help you too. Learn more about our complex regional pain syndrome practice.
Drunk drivers are responsible for thousands of accidents, injuries, and fatalities every year. If you or a loved one is a victim of a drunk driver, you are likely entitled to just compensation under the law. We are passionate about helping victims of these irresponsible drivers, and will fight aggressively on your behalf. Learn more about our drunk driver practice.
When you purchase a product there is an assumption that the product will work as it is designed. When there is a defect, you are typically just entitled to getting a replacement product or your money back. If that defect leads to serious injury or other issues, however, the creator of that product may be held accountable for the results. We can help you get the compensation you need if you or a loved one has been injured due to defective products. Learn more about our defective products practice.
