New Orleans Brain Injury Lawyers
Any trauma that disrupts the normal function of the brain can cause a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Non-penetrating blows to the head as well as penetrating head wounds can result in TBI.
If you or a loved one has suffered a traumatic brain injury because of another party’s negligence, it may be possible to collect compensation for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Speak with one of the experienced personal injury lawyers at Rome, Arata, Baxley & Stelly, LLC, to learn how we may help you and your family during this difficult time.
Mild, Moderate And Severe TBI
The amount of neurological disruption or damage the brain suffers will determine whether the TBI is classified as mild, moderate or severe. A severe TBI is the most dangerous, of course, but all TBI can cause debilitating symptoms temporarily or permanently. Memory loss, headaches, confusion and personality changes or mood disorders can occur with all levels of TBI.
Even when an injury victim retains his or her physical and mental abilities, the emotional problems, irritability, depression or personality changes can make it difficult to interact with others. These issues may mean the person cannot work or participate in social activities.
Extensive medical treatment and long-term daily care may be necessary in moderate and severe TBI cases. The victim and his or her family will need considerable compensation to cover the cost of medical expenses and related losses.
An accident that causes a blow to the body or head can injure the brain. People often suffer TBI in accidents such as:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Truck accidents
- Maritime accidents
- Premises liability accidents (slip-and-fall accidents)
If your brain injury was caused by the negligence of another party under other circumstances, you may be entitled to recover damages. Discuss the details with our New Orleans traumatic brain injuries attorneys today to find out more.
