Understanding Traumatic Brain Injuries
After your TBI, your world may feel like it has been turned upside down. You know you need compensation to pay your injury-related expenses, but first, it’s important to understand what happened to you and how you can expect it to impact you in the days to come.
What Is a Traumatic Brain Injury?
A TBI can occur when sudden physical trauma causes damage to the brain. Whether it’s from a violent jolt or blunt force, the impact of a TBI can be life-altering. Many people with TBIs become partially or fully disabled for weeks, months, or even the rest of their lives.
Causes of Traumatic Brain Injuries
TBIs are often the result of accidents like falls, vehicle collisions, or sports injuries. Understanding these causes, and when negligence is involved, is crucial in pinpointing liability, especially when who is at fault isn’t immediately known or obvious and requires an investigation.
Common Symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injuries
The symptoms of a TBI can range from mild, such as headaches and dizziness, to severe, like loss of consciousness and memory issues. Recognizing these signs as quickly as possible is vital both for effective treatment and successful legal action against the at-fault party.
Why You Need a Louisiana Brain Injury Attorney
If you suffered a TBI that wasn’t your fault, hiring a lawyer may be the most important move you’ll make during your recovery. For many victims, an experienced lawyer in their corner is the difference between getting full and fair compensation and getting no compensation at all.
Importance of Hiring a Brain Injury Attorney
Navigating the aftermath of a TBI can be complex. An experienced and skilled traumatic brain injury lawyer can help you with the legal intricacies of filing an injury claim against the person or party who injured you while advocating for your rights. If necessary, your lawyer can even take your case to trial to maximize your chances of getting the money you deserve.
How an Attorney Can Help with Your TBI Case
A Louisiana traumatic brain injury lawyer can assist in gathering and presenting evidence, consult with medical professionals to document the extent of your injury, and negotiate with insurance companies for fair compensation.
They can also calculate your current and future expenses, handle all of the paperwork related to your case, and take much of the stress of your case off your shoulders. Simply put, having an experienced lawyer on your side means peace of mind and more time to focus on getting better.
Compensation You Can Seek for a Brain Injury
If you suffered a TBI because of someone else’s negligence, you may be eligible to receive compensation for resulting major, life-altering damages, including:
- Current and future medical expenses related to your TBI (ambulance ride to the hospital, surgery, overnight stays, rehabilitation, and more)
- Current and future lost wages
- Pain and suffering, including physical and psychological pain related to your injury
- Punitive damages, if your case goes to trial and approved by the jury
Choosing the Right Brain Injury Lawyer
There are many law firms who handle personal injury claims, but knowing how to pick the right one for your case can be difficult. The following tips can help you find the right lawyer for your TBI case.
Experience, Empathy, and a Proven Track Record
It’s important to choose a seasoned lawyer who is empathetic and has a proven track record in handling TBI cases. You should also choose a lawyer you’re comfortable with.
If you don’t feel like your lawyer cares about you or your story, you may be less likely to share important details with them—and they may be less likely to take your case as seriously as it deserves.
Experience in Handling TBI Cases
The right lawyer will have specific experience in TBI cases. With experience comes a deeper understanding of the medical and legal nuances involved, which is essential for success in these types of claims.
Many Positive Client Testimonials and Success Stories
Client feedback and case successes offer valuable insight into a lawyer’s capabilities and approach to client care, especially those specifically involving TBI cases. It’s important to read as many testimonials and success stories as you can to get a feel for how the law firm helps clients.
If possible, ask the law firm if they can share the contact information of former clients who would be willing to speak with you to better understand their stories and how the firm helped them.
