Huntsville Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers With a Long History of Success

Strong legal advocates protect your financial future while you heal

Car accidents are unexpected. A serious car accident can be both a shock and a devestation. Minor fender benders are common, but no one ever imagines they will be involved in a serious accident that can threaten their health or life. Serious accidents cause serious injuries and a traumatic brain injury (TBI) can change your life forever. A traumatic brain injury can impair cognitive functioning, memory, or the ability to communicate. Often, a traumatic brain injury requires intensive rehabilitation and ongoing care. In the worst case scenario, a TBI can require lifelong medical care.

If you have suffered a brain injury because of someone else's negligence, you may be entitled to compensation under the law. The Huntsville traumatic brain injury lawyers at Watson McKinney LLP are compassionate to your injury and tough on negligent parties. With more than 45 years of combined experience, trust our team to be there when you need us most. We work with TBI victims in Huntsville, Madison, Decatur, Athens, Scottsboro, Guntersville, and surrounding communities.

A traumatic brain injury can change your life forever

The effects of a traumatic brain injury depend on the severity of the injury. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that traumatic brain injuries can cause short- and long-term effects on thinking, sensation, language and emotion. TBIs can impair memory and reasoning, making it hard for people to perform higher-order logical thinking or even complete simple tasks, like following a recipe. Some injuries can impair a person's ability to speak or communicate in any way, or even to understand speech or writing. TBIs can even impair a person's ability to taste, smell, or feel.

Depending on the area of the brain injured and the extent of the injuries, TBI can cause life-long health problems, including seizures, Alzheimer's disease, and Parkinson's disease. The effects of a TBI are not just physical. Traumatic brain injuries can also lead to emotional changes, including heightened anxiety, depression and severe mood swings. It can wreak havoc on your quality of life and the quality of your relationships.

A traumatic brain injury can change your life, so working with a knowledgeable Hunstville traumatic brain injury lawyer is essential in obtaining full compensation for your injuries, long term medical care and lost wages.

Potential causes of a traumatic brain injury

While motor vehicle accidents are the most common cause of TBIs, you don't have to be in a car accident to suffer a traumatic brain injury because of someone else's negligence. Personal injury accidents such as a slip and fall can lead to TBI, as well as accidents in the workplace, or on someone else's property. Traumatic brain injuries can be caused by a number of different types of accidents. Even a concussion suffered during a neighborhood game of football can be classified as a TBI.

Tractor trailer truck and motorcycle accidents are bigger risks for serious brain injuries. Truck accidents can lead to more devastating crashes and injuries thanks to the sheer size of the trucks. In fact, more accidents involving large trucks result in TBIs than those involving passenger cars. Motorcycle accidents can lead to severe injuries since the rider is not protected by the shell of an automobile. The rider is thrown from the motorcycle, and even when wearing a helmet, traumatic brain injury is a common result.

Those who work with heavy equipment are also at greater risk of traumatic brain injury. Construction workers can fall from great heights and hit their heads, or they can be hit in the head by the arm of a crane or a piece of lumber or tool falling off a beam or a platform. Even a seemingly simple slip or fall on someone's property can cause a serious head injury. Perhaps a business failed to secure an area where there was a spill causing a fall, or perhaps your neighbor did not properly gate-off a construction area on their property, causing a fall. The result can be an irreversible head injury.
