Serious injuries unfortunately happen to good people every day. A car accident on one of any of the major highways in Alabama can be devastating. A workplace accident at the Port of Mobile or at a department store can be debilitating. A dog bite in one of the historic neighborhoods like Ashland Place or Toulminville can change your life.
Wherever the accident occurs in Mobile, a serious injury, such as a back injury or burn injury, may keep you off your feet for weeks, months or even permanently in some cases. You may be unable to work or take care of your children. Your medical bills may start to run out of control due to unforeseen costs.

Burn injuries are one of the most traumatic injuries that one can go through. Often victims are not only suffering from pain and disfigurement, but a loss in wages when they are unable to work and earn money to support their families.
Burn injuries can be a result of any type of accident, from a car wreck to a construction site accident. Many jobs involve dangerous solvents and compounds that can cause a chemical burn; these cases may qualify the victim for a workers' compensation claim.
Brain injuries can be sustained in car accidents, through medical malpractice or as a result of an on-the-job accident. Without question, brain injuries are among the most serious types of injury we handle. Whether it's a concussion or an open-head wound, victims will need a highly skilled attorney working on their behalf. That's because a brain injury can turn lives upside-down. The emotional impact of the injury on the victim and his or her loved ones can be profound. But there also is a very real economic impact. Typically, a brain injury can cost more than $3 million over the course of a lifetime. This includes the cost associated with lost wages and well as lifetime care.
Severe traumatic brain injuries require an experienced attorney, an attorney who understands not just the judicial system but the mechanisms of the brain, how the brain works. You have to understand the medical terminology. You have to understand the interplay between psychology in the brain. You have to understand what the long term outcome will be for a patient who has suffered a severe traumatic brain injury.

Spinal cord injuries are not the same as a "bad back." With a spinal cord injury, the victim suffers damage to the spinal cord that leads to a loss of function and/or mobility.
Referred to by the abbreviation SCI, they can be caused by both disease and direct trauma. Every year, more than 10,000 Americans suffer SCI. They are frequently the result of a roadway accident like a car accident, truck accident, or, often, a motorcycle accident. However, a vehicle is not always involved. Spinal cord injuries can also result from violence-related accidents, accidents involving athletics or sports, and slip and fall accidents.
The impact of spinal cord injuries is often permanent, though in some cases it may only be temporary. Symptoms include loss of movement (paralysis), of sensation, or loss of bladder/bowel control.
There are two types of spinal cord injury:
Complete spinal cord injury results in the victim losing sensation or voluntary motor movement below the level of the injury (one or both sides of the body). Injuries to the spinal cord in the neck often lead to paralysis of all limbs (quadriplegia); injuries lower on the spine cause paralysis to just the legs (paraplegia). Loss of movement can also result from a brain injury.
Incomplete spinal cord injury allows the victim some feeling or partial movement. For example, an incomplete cervical injury may leave the patient some use of their hands, while a complete injury in the same area can require use of a ventilator.
