Traumatic Brain Injuries Following 18-Wheeler Accidents in Alabama - A Comprehensive Guide

If you or a loved one has been involved in an 18-wheeler accident in Alabama, then you know how devastating the consequences may be. One of the most severe and life-altering consequences of such a mishap is experiencing traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). We, at the Law Office of Stephen Thompson, deeply understand your situation and are committed to employing our expertise in Alabama personal injury law, with particular focus on car accidents, to help you through these challenging times.

What is a Traumatic Brain Injury?

A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is characterized as a blow, jolt, or penetrating injury to the head that interrupts normal brain function. TBIs range from mild (a brief change in mental status or consciousness) to severe (an extended period of unconsciousness or amnesia). These injuries, unfortunately, often follow the horrifying path of an 18-wheeler accident.

The Impact of Traumatic Brain Injuries in Alabama

Being involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler can lead to catastrophic injuries, especially if one is riding a car at the time of the crash. A TBI can have a profound impact on a victim’s life, often necessitating a long-term or even lifetime treatment plan. This might include rehabilitation, therapy, home modifications and much more.

Furthermore, the individual may also suffer from cognitive, sensory, or physical disabilities, leading to loss of wages, emotional distress, pain and suffering. Therefore, ensuring you are rightfully compensated for both your physical injuries and other damages is crucial, and having a skilled Alabama car accident lawyer by your side, like Stephen Thompson, is fundamental in achieving this.
