Houston Traumatic Brain Injury Attorney

We Are an Experienced Team of Traumatic Brain Injury Attorneys

Morrow & Sheppard LLP is privileged to represent injured persons 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). Car accidents, sports incidents, and slip and fall 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 injured offshore workers or victims and their loved ones face as they try to heal and make sense of their accident. That’s why we work on a contingency-fee basis, which means no fee unless we win your 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.

Nick Morrow and John Sheppard are the best. I was paralyzed in a work injury. Several other lawyers turned down my case. Morrow & Sheppard hired expensive experts, took dozens of depositions, and proved my case. I saw them in court against a team of defense lawyers, and the defense lawyers didn’t stand a chance. Morrow & Sheppard took my case all the way when nobody else would. Now my family is set up for life. Throughout the process, they kept me updated and made me feel like I was more than a number. I still talk to Nick to this day. Morrow & Sheppard exceeded my expectations in every way, and I cannot recommend them enough. If you are injured at work, call Morrow & more

John Sheppard and Nick Morrow were two of the brightest stars in my law school class and my class of lawyers at Fulbright & Jaworski, one of the most elite and prestigious law firms in Houston and Texas. I have known both of them for well over a decade now and throughout that time they have both always lived up to the highest standards of intellect, tenacity, and professionalism. They are both winners. If you need a Houston lawyer who will stand up for your rights and get you the justice you deserve, I wholeheartedly recommend Morrow & Sheppard. read more

John Sheppard, with Morrow & Sheppard LLP, is brilliant. On more than one occasion, he successfully represented various affiliated companies I was part of. John is very diligent, thorough and fights hard for righteousness. There were numerous times that he helped us through extremely difficult moments. John is very professional, responsive and respectful. I highly endorse Morrow and Sheppard LLP for legal representation and/or legal assistance needs. read more

My experience with John, at Morrow and Sheppard, during my company’s litigation was better than I could have imagined (considering the circumstances of being involved in litigation). What stood out to me the most, was John’s tenacity in preparation. I later realized this came from two places, one he didn’t want to lose and two (and most importantly) he CARED so much about me getting justice. I cannot stress this enough, when you are dealing with a lawyer that truly cares, then all of the other stresses I had around the case seemed to go away. I was always kept up to date with what was going on in our case, and he always made it very clear he was just an email or call away! In addition to these attributes, he also knows the law and is willing to fight for what is right! It would be tough to find another lawyer that is as highly effective, skilled, knowledgeable, ethical and has such an impeccable reputation (which is well deserved). I would recommend Morrow and Sheppard to anyone seeking out a law firm, in the event they needed more
