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.

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.

Treatment for a TBI or other brain injury may include:
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.
If you or someone you know has suffered a blow to the head, or accident in which the head was jarred unexpectedly, you need to call a doctor as soon as possible – particularly if any of the above symptoms are present.
If you believe another person, company, or device may have caused a head injury, you also need to speak to a qualified Houston brain injury attorney as soon as possible. Call our office at (713) 489-1206 or contact us online for a free, confidential consultation.
