Lawyers For Brain Injury Victims in Texas, Louisiana, and New Mexico

Fighting for Victims With Serious Brain Injuries

Morrow & Sheppard LLP is privileged to represent injured workers who suffer serious brain and closed head injuries as the result of another party’s wrongful conduct or negligence. Unfortunately, many kinds of accidents can leave a victim with a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Maritime accidents, oilfield accidents, and construction accidents are just three of the most common ways people sustain traumatic brain injuries. Many people who suffer TBIs are entitled to bring personal injury or negligence claims and should consider speaking with an experienced Houston brain injury attorney as soon as possible following an accident.

    Parts of the Brain and Their Functions

    Perhaps the most feared personal injury is a brain injury. That is because your brain is essential to almost every activity. The sophistication of our brains is what makes us human.

    The several parts of the brain perform different functions:

    • Cerebrum – higher brain function including thought and action
    • Thalamus – consciousness, sleep, and alertness
    • Hypothalamus – hunger, body temperature, thirst, fatigue, sleep rhythms
    • Tectum – eye movements, visual processing, and auditory processing
    • Tegmentum – voluntary movement
    • Cerebellum – balance, movement, and posture
    • Pons – bladder control, posture, sleep, respiration, swallowing, hearing, taste, dreams, inhalation/exhalation, hearing, equilibrium, eye movement, and facial expressions and sensations
    • Medulla oblongata – breathing, heart rate, blood pressure, vomiting

    Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms

    A traumatic brain injury is severely disabling. It completely changes the lives of not just the person who suffers the injury, but everyone who knows and loves that person.

    A TBI occurs when there is sudden brain trauma. A closed head injury is when the trauma does not pierce the skull.

    TBI can cause a wide range of symptoms including, but not limited to:

    • Agitation

    • Behavioral changes

    • Blurry vision

    • Confusion

    • Dizziness and lightheadedness

    • Fatigue

    • Headaches

    • Inability to concentrate

    • Inability to sleep

    • Inability to think

    • Loss of coordination

    • Mood swings

    • Memory loss

    • Slurred speech

    • Tinnitus or ringing in the ears

    • Vomiting

    • Weakness

    Diagnosing Traumatic Brain Injury

    Treatment for a brain injury depends on its extent and location. Tests performed to provide that diagnosis include:

    • Glasgow Coma Scale – 15-point test that assesses severity of brain injury
    • Computerized Tomography (CT Scans) – x-rays create a brain image
    • Magnetic resonance Imaging (MRI) – radio waves and magnets create a brain image
    • Intracranial Pressure Testing – a probe is inserted into the skull to test pressure

    No Fee Unless We Win

    At Morrow & Sheppard LLP, we understand the hardships of trying to heal and make sense of an accident. That is why we work on a contingency fee basis, which means no fee unless we win the case. Our fee is a percentage of the verdict or settlement we obtain for you.

    Traumatic Brain Injury Treatment

    Treatment for a TBI or other brain injury may include:

    • occupational therapy
    • medicine
    • physical therapy
    • psychology/psychiatric treatment
    • speech therapy
    • surgery – may involve removal of contusions (brain bruises) or hematomas (ruptured blood vessels)

    Unfortunately, as seen by our Houston personal injury lawyers, many people who suffer brain injuries have permanent side effects or disabilities. These include temporary or permanent comas, sensory deficits, reduced cognition, inability to communicate, and behavioral issues.
